Asian American Jeremy Lin had a good debut in Houston Rockets as he posted 12 points and 8 assists, but it was the reigning Sixth Man of the Year and fellow newcomer James Harden made tremendous contributions to steer the team in a 105-96 victory on Wednesday night at the home of Detroit Pistons.
Harden poured 37 points and issued 12 assists while grabbing six rebounds. He made 14 out of 25 shot attempts in the field and 4 out of ten from deep. The Pistons found no answer to the Rockets game led by Harden’s scoring outburst.
Detroit managed to get the led 83-72 in early part of the fourth quarter before the hot shooting by Carlos Delfino in three-point area took place. Defino made four three pointers in the last quarter. He was joined by newly acquired Harden, who signed an $80 million contract extension after he was traded from Oklahoma City Thunder. It seemed that Harden was worth it for that amount last night. Brandon Knight led the losing team with 15 points.
Harden started the comeback with his 3-point shot when they were down by 11 points. The shot by Harden was followed by a dunk courtesy of Greg Smith. After the consecutive shots by Defino in three-point line, Detroit led only by two at 85-83. Chandler Parsons tied the score through his layup. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…

Many NBA followers failed to notice the potential of Chicago Bulls to keep their winning form despite the absence of Derrick Rose in most part of the 2012-13 NBA season due to injury. The Bulls may prove everyone that they could beat most teams in the league without their MVP point guard.
