07:43 AM ET 10.25 | A new kind of Linsanity has taken root, this time in Houston, where the point guard's evolution -- or lack thereof -- is charted so much more intensely. [Lin] continued to struggle with his shot Wednesday but in some ways saw progress. He had another in a series of preseason games in which he did many things well and got good shots for himself and teammates. But he made just one of eight attempts, taking six of those shots at the rim in the face of converging big men. "For me, it's progress," Lin said. ... "Do I wish I played better? Of course. But I have to be realistic and understand when I came into training camp I couldn't even get into the paint, and now I can get into the paint, but I'm not finishing. The next step is to start finishing."
