Lin's OK after hit to head (Chinese)

In this edition of the Mandarin Minute, Howard Chen talks about the turnovers that plagued the Rockets into their second straight loss.

One day after establishing a new season high with 24 turnovers, the Rockets matched that total against the Thunder.

The turning point of the game came after Jeremy Lin had just finished a nice three-point play to cut the Thunder lead to 52-50. Thing is, the Rockets were scoreless the rest of the half while the Thunder ran off 16 points, took the 68-50 halftime lead, and ran away with the game 124-94.

In the second half of the game, Lin was nailed in the head with a forearm coming from Nick Collison that appeared inadvertant. Lin was woozy at that moment, but after the game, said he was perfectly fine.

This was the Rockets' fourth game in five nights. They lost the last two, so fatigue could have been an issue, but the Rockets refused to use that as an excuse.

Their next game will take place Monday when the Hawks come to town.
