"They're aggressive. They're an attacking defense. Not just us, but they do that to everybody," said Jeremy Lin of the Houston Rockets, according to the Houston Chronicle. "That's their style. That's what we have to be prepared for. The best way to handle an attacking defense is to attack on offense. That's what we want to try to do."
It was early this year when Lin faced the Heat while playing for the New York Knicks. At that time, Linsanity exploded after Lin led a winning streak while being promoted to the starting lineup. But Lin and the Knicks struggled against Miami's defense and lost the game.
Now Lin is with the Rockets and the talk of the town is how well he and James Harden are playing together.
The Heat are 5-2, the Rockets are 3-3.
The Heat are coming out of a loss against the Grizzlies, 104-86, Sunday night. The Rockets are coming out of a win against the Pistons, 96-82, on Saturday.
