Jeremy Lin is finally settling into his proper place into the NBA hierarchy. He isn't the superstar that many trumpeted him to be during his magical run with the New York Knicks last year, nor is he an end-of-the-bench reserve who couldn't get run with the Golden State Warriors.
As a highly competent playmaker who can go off for 25 points and 10 assists on any given night, it's clear that Lin is one of those unique talents who opposing teams make note of on their pregame scouting reports. And much like every other player in the NBA, Lin has a few noticeable flaws in his game. By preventing the Rockets point guard from doing the things that he does best, it's not terribly difficult to keep Lin in check.
