Jeremy Lin Benched in Favor of Patrick Beverley for Rockets Opening Night Lineup
Earlier today, teammate Chandler Parsons revealed that he, Dwight Howard, James Harden, Omer Asik and Patrick Beverley would be the starters for Houston's season-opener against the Charlotte Bobcats, per the Houston Chronicle's Jonathan Feigen.
Same starters, Chandler Parsons said. That would be Dwight, Omer, Parsons, Harden, Beverley. Go nuts.
Head coach Kevin McHale has been grappling with the decision of whether to start Lin or Beverley at point guard for some time now.
"I have two starting point guards," he previously said, according to the Chronicle's Jenny Dial Creech.
Howard will be starting at power forward alongside Asik at center—putting Houston's past floor-spacing dynamic to bed—and Harden is famed for attacking the hole with his patented dribble-drives.
Sounds like Houston has a 25 million dollar bench player now....
And what do you think of Howard at Power Forward?
