Jeremy Lin benched a lot in 4th quarters lately
Lin has not played in the fourth quarter of the Rockets’ past three games, sitting out late in close games against the Magic and Mavericks and in the home rout against the Mavericks. Rockets center Omer Asik also sat out the fourth quarter against the Mavericks, but also said he was unconcerned with his own playing time.
“I really don’t care too much because the coach knows what is best for the team,” Asik said. “Of course it’s hard for me, but I just want to win. We came back. We were down like 10 and were in it to the end of the game.”
