The Houston Rockets are taking on the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night. It is a close game so far and point guard Jeremy Lin got things going early with a big three-point in the first quarter.
Lin is already of three from behind the arc and how he gets left so open is baffling. There was no one even in his general vicinity when he took this shot. There wasn’t even anyone close enough to run and make a late effort to get a hand in his face.
It is almost like they just sat back and let him shoot knowing that they already made a mistake. If the Sixers keep letting Lin take shots like this it is going to be a long night for them. Amazingly, they’ve managed to keep the score close so far.
