Where Lin's showing improvement

Jeremy Lin has received his fair share of criticism for his propensity to turn the ball over and his inconsistent perimeter jumper, but Houston's young point guard is doing much better in one of those areas as of late.
Lin's scored in double-digits in each of the Rockets' nine games this month, and his scoring is up to 16.9 PPG during that stretch. A big reason for that is his improved efficiency from the field.
Here's Seth Landman of ESPN's Fantasy Basketball Blog with more on Lin's recent improvement.

"Jeremy Lin has now scored 20-plus points in three straight games for the Rockets after Wednesday night's dismantling of the Jazz. Lin is averaging 18.6 points on 56.5 percent shooting over his past five games, but the most exciting thing about him of late is the fact that he's shooting 41 percent on 3-pointers since the All-Star break. The Rockets need him to be a capable spot-up shooter, and he's going to have even bigger fantasy value next season if he can keep making 3s."
