Lin starting to feel it from three-point range

Not known for his outside shot, Jeremy Lin's been stroking it from three-point land as of late.

The Rockets point guard's a 31.1-percent three-point shooter for the season. However, in the month of February, Lin is shooting 10-21 (47.6 percent) over seven games. This includes a career-best 5-8 three-point performance during a February 5th win over the Warriors. For some perspective on this percentage, the current NBA leader in three-point percentage is the Hawks' Kyle Korver at 46 percent.

Lin's three-point accuracy was on point as well during Tuesday's practice.

"Yeah, it's starting to feel good," Lin said. "So hopefully, I keep it going and just pick up where I left off (before the All-Star break). That's the goal."

For his career, Lin is a 31.5 percent three-point shooter.
