Linsanity Can't Run Wild In Houston

The Jeremy Lin we saw against the San Antonio Spurs were one fans in Houston were hoping for in the beginning of the season.

Lin hasn't been the "Linsanity" fans have hoped for and while some question that he may be "overrated", his struggles haven't been because of his skill set. When Lin was with the New York Knicks, he led that team with the same expectations Houston fans had: a fun run and gun game similar to the Phoenix Suns glory days with Steve Nash and Amare Stoudemire.

What they've been getting is more of an "average" point guard instead and it's not Lin's fault.The difference between the majority of the season and how comfortable he looked against the Spurs was James Harden not being on the court. While teams need superstars, they need to find a balance and to find out how they compliment each other.

You can compare these two to Steve Nash and Kobe Bryant, who were having trouble being on the court together in the beginning of the season because their games are so different and don't compliment each other. Lin needs the ball to distribute and set up while Harden needs the ball to score. He had more freedom with Harden out than with Harden in the game. He looked for his own shot while looking to create for others if the defense decided to help on him. Lin will show improvement if Harden can learn to play next to him while they're on the court together.

It's not about skills or being overrated with Jeremy Lin, it's more about his chemistry with his new teammate.
