Linsanity (9 3pters) vs Tony Wroten (triple double) & James Anderson (36pts)
With James Harden and rookie phenom Michael Carter-Williams sitting out the Rockets vs 76ers OT game on Wednesday, it set the stage for the return of “Linsanity” and the “hello world” by Tony Wroten and teammate James Anderson.
Jeremy Lin hit a career high 9 3 pointers, which also tied Robert Horry for a franchise high, and finished the game with 34 points and 12 assists. Michael Carter-Williams made his NBA debut with a triple double and his replacement last night, Tony Wroten, also accomplished a triple double in his first career start.
The Rockets were able to get 22 points from Parsons and a strong double double from Dwight (23/15) but the 76ers were too much behind Wroten, Evan Turner (23 points) and James Anderson who also had a career game with 36 points.
