Jeremy Lin says Dwight Howard “Really Likes to Play Pick-and-Roll”
Jeremy Lin started all 82 games last season, averaging 6.1 assists in 32.2 minutes. Rockets star James Harden dominated the ball a lot, but after acquiring Dwight Howard, Lin is looking forward to building chemistry with the 7-time all-star.
Lin told reporters on a visit to Beijing that he saw a natural affinity in the pair’s affection for the pick-and-roll game.
“We’re not yet in Houston and haven’t trained together so I don’t know yet,” said the 25-year-old point guard, who was in China to oversee a basketball camp.
“But he really likes to play pick-and-roll and I really like to play pick-and-roll, so I hope we can work really well together and really happily learn how to play with each other,” Lin said.
The presence of Dwight Howard should enhance Jeremy Lin’s game.
