The Houston Rockets fell to the San Antonio Spurs, 134-126, but that's not exactly the story that arose from the high-scoring affair. Jeremy Lin gave us a look at what we've been missing ever since he left New York to play with the Rockets.
Lin tied his career high by putting up 38 points in the overtime game against San Antonio, and he played up to the old billing of "Linsanity." He was the reason why the Rockets were in the game late, even though he was having a middling game by the time halftime rolled around.
Lin's 38 points were accompanied by three rebounds, seven assists, two steals and two blocks in 42 big minutes, and it gave us a reason to question a lot about Lin.
As a highly controversial player in the NBA, everybody seems to have their own opinion about the sometimes-phenomenal Lin, and from that arise a handful of hyperbolic opinions, leaning toward him being great or him being a bum.
There are, however, a handful of egregious misconceptions about Lin that are in dire need of being debunked before they run rampant and take over his image totally.
