Video Highlights: Jeremy Lin blows up, but Rockets fall to 76ers in Overtime

New, comment

Jeremy Lin had one of his finest nights as a Rocket last night, but the James Harden-less Rockets couldn't contain the 76ers and fell in an overtime heartbreaker.

With James Harden nursing a pair of sore feet, the Rockets went with Jeremy Lin at the shooting guard spot on Wednesday night against the 76ers, and the fourth year guard did not disappoint. Playing 49 minutes as Kevin McHale shortened his bench, Jeremy Lin put together a remarkable 34 and 12 stat line, carrying the Rockets offense with a record-tying nine three pointers.

In the end, however, it was not enough, as the Rockets turned the ball over 19 times and gave up career nights to James Anderson (36 points) and Tony Wroten (18 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists). They had a lead late, but quickly saw that evaporate as the Sixers could not be stopped down the stretch.
