Although the Rockets defeated the Bucks 115-101 on Friday for their third straight win, the victory still left them concerned about one major thing: Jeremy Lin.
With 1:26 minutes into the third quarter, Lin collided with Larry Sanders cheek as they both raced to the ball leaving the former player's head visibly bloodied.
The Rockets' PG was then rushed to the locker room where he reportedly got stitches, but eight minutes later, despite the serious head injury sustained, Lin was back to the Rocket's bench.
Lin would start the 4th quarter and would ultimately give the Rockets a much needed 14 point boost - via six points and three assists for eight additional points - to secure the scoreboard.
Lin ended the game with eight points, seven assists, and four steals as the Rockets averaged 54.2 percent from the field while James Harden's 29 points - shooting 11-18 - was one of the major factors of Houston clinching the win.
Houston's record is now 19-14 having won 10 out of its last 13 games. The Rockets now place 6th in the Western Conference standings and trail the 5th placed Memphis Grizzlies with a 20-10 record.
Milwaukee was handed its third straight loss and remains in 7th place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 16-15.
