Jeremy Lin: Consistency Is Houston Rockets PG’s Biggest Problem This Season

December 11th, 2012 by Nicholas Goss Leave a reply »

Jeremy Lin's 38-point performance against the San Antonio Spurs on Monday night was one of the finest games of his Houston Rockets career, but playing at a high level consistently is still a real problem for the young point guard.

More than any other position, point guards have to be consistent each night because their team's offense flows through them. Inconsistent play from floor generals affects the whole team's offense in a negative way.

Since the start of November, Lin has scored 10 or more points in consecutive games just one time, and over for entire season, he has scored more than 20 points in only two games.

Lin isn't being asked to lead the league, or even his own team in scoring this year, but his current points per game average of 11.4 isn't good enough for a player of his caliber earning a good-sized salary.

The Rockets' point guard is also shooting just 39 percent from the field and 31.5 percent from the three-point line.

Another problem for Lin is that he's not getting to the free-throw line as often as he needs to, and one reason for this is that he's not being aggressive offensively.
