    Definitively:

    - when his left hand gets better

    Who knows when that's going to happen. But when it does. Watch out.

    In a couple years. Man, Patterson is improving from last year, but where's the athleticism in his rookie season?

    If TD was able to get better, I think he will. Nice to see TD get out of shooting slump, and back with it is his self-confidence. Same will happen to Lin.

    Jeremy Lin had a rough night shooting the ball, hitting just two of his ten attempts from the field, but after the game Kelvin Sampson praised Lin for the tough defense he provided on the other end of the floor. Lin came into the game ranked fourth in the NBA averaging 2.43 thefts per game and that number will go up after he collected three more steals Wednesday night.

    “I thought Jeremy Lin especially was tough on defense tonight. Jeremy is tough; he doesn't get enough credit for that. He sticks his nose in there and gets on the floor after loose balls and is always in good position and he moves the ball, too.”

    Sampson also shared his thoughts on how he envisions Lin’s role expanding as the season goes on and how much confidence the entire Rockets’ coaching staff has in the 24-year-old’s abilities.

    “As the season goes on, we’d like to get Jeremy more involved in pick-and-rolls. Teams jump on him and force him to his left hand a lot and Jeremy is not as effective going left as he is going right. But as individual development he’s got to continue to work on that left hand so we can play pick-and-roll with him to different sides of the floor.

    “I didn’t think Jeremy took a bad shot all night. I liked every shot he attempted. I always look at him and give him a little fist bump and tell him, ‘Keep shooting, hoss – the next one will go in.’ I want him to have that confidence because I have that confidence in him.”

    Fair play to Sampson then. Maybe I misjudged him, or maybe Lin is winning him over with his sincerity, dedication and hard work.

    Lin will be fine, everyone needs to patient. Law of averages says he will make more shots in the near future. He just has to be mentally tough enough to keep shooting with confidence.

    The game is always difficult for players who do not have shooting abilities.

    way to early in the season. He's playing alright - just need to take more shots and get his stroke back.
