Before you watch the live stream online of Jeremy Lin's Houston Rockets versus the Phoenix Suns, here is a preview of Tuesday's contest.
Houston is coming off an 18-point loss to the Denver Nuggets on Saturday night. The Rockets were without starting forward Chandler Parsons and key contributor Carlos Delfino, who missed the game with a calf strain and the flu, respectively. Both are listed as questionable for Tuesday's contest, per Rotoworld.
Point guard Jeremy Lin led the squad versus Denver with 23 points, while James Harden had 14 points and four rebounds. Still, Houston's defense, which still ranks 28th in the NBA, allowed Denver to shoot 54.5 percent from the field, including 44 percent from three-point range.
Per the Houston Chronicle, the 132 points scored by the Nuggets was the team's highest scoring output this season. It was also the most Houston had given up in a regulation contest. Still, Jeremy Lin told the paper after the game that he still believes in his team.
"It doesn't matter who we play, I think we're confident," Lin said. "I think we've shown ourselves we can beat anybody in this league. That's in no way a guarantee or anything, but I'm just saying going in, whoever we face, we feel like with what we have in this locker room, we'll be just fine."
Jeremy Lin has also been busy communicating with his teammates in the NBA Development League. Per the Houston Chronicle, the point guard has been texting them after every game.
"I've been in those shoes before," Lin said. "I know what it's like. A little something like that, keeping up with them, making sure they feel a part of the team and giving them that confidence - I think that's really important for their growth as a player."
Phoenix, meanwhile, is coming off a three-point loss to the New Orleans Hornets on Sunday night. The defeat marked the Suns' seventh straight loss at home, a franchise record. Forward Markieff Morris had a team-high 18 points in the loss, while fellow forward Luis Scola had a double-double with 17 points and 10 rebounds.
In fact, the Suns are in the middle of a nine-game losing streak overall, their worst since the 1996-97 season. Phoenix has particularly struggled in the third quarter as of late, getting outscored by an average of 17.3 points over the last three contests, per NBA.com.
Houston and Phoenix have split the season series so far this year. On March 9, the Rockets lost by two despite 38 points from James Harden. The guard made seven threes in the contest, and the team as a whole had 19 baskets from long-range. Jeremy Lin, meanwhile, had 11 points, though he made only one three in that contest. Guard Jared Dudley led Phoenix with 22 points off the bench.
However, the Rockets got revenge just a few days later with a 30-point victory. Houston as a whole shot 51.3 percent from the field, and all five starters scored in double figures. Center Omer Asik was just three rebounds shy of a double-double, while forward Donatas Montiejunas had a team-high 19 points. Jeremy Lin, meanwhile, had 13 points and six assists. Forward Wesley Johnson had a team-high 15 points for the Suns.
