Houston Rockets PF Jeremy Lin Is “Just Thankful” For Recent Triple-Double

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Point guard Jeremy Lin recored a triple-double recently, which was probably a welcome relief after all of his early season troubles.

“I’m just thankful” Lin said to NBA.com. “I never really thought about [the triple-double] until everyone was telling me it was about to happen. Three games ago, I was in a pretty bad slump, so right now I’m just trying to stay aggressive, stay confident, and try to make the right basketball play.”

It has not quite been Linsanity lately, but hopefully the point guard out of Palo Alto can keep the hot streak going into the playoffs. His production against the other elite teams of the West will be critical for Dwight Howard to finally have playoff success, and honestly just do not see it happening this season. I love James Harden, and he is my favorite shooting guard in the league but they seem like they are still a year or two away from getting it done when it comes to June basketball.

Thanks for coming by on Super Bowl Sunday, and here is some fortune cookie wisdom to light you on your path in the coming week. Let’s make February the best month yet folks and chase something elusive.
