Houston Rockets Jeremy Lin and his teammates are pushing hard to make the sixth spot in the playoffs with a month left in the season.

Despite the “inconsistencies as a young team by winning some really good games and losing some bad games”, Lin wrote on his official website, they are in general “getting better."

The 24-year-old Chinese-American NBA star remains optimistic of his team's potentials and is committed to raising the bar of his performances on the court in his future games.

“One a personal level, I am working on playing at the highest level I can play at every night and have a long list of things to work on this summer,” said Lin.

As a dedicated evangelical Christian, Lin shared the Bible verses that he has been meditating on recently. It is from the book of Matthew 11:28-30:

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

A fan commented, “Im better person because of you…Im now officially a Christian…your story inspired me...Im now a strong person and religious one just like you.”

Moreover, Lin shared a picture of him with the students from his foundation’s Making a Difference project partner PAIR (Partnership for the Advancement and Immersion of Refugees), a Houston-based non-profit organization.

While the inaugural Making a Difference project has chosen three organizations PAIR, Workshop Houston and Yellowstone Academy, PAIR emerged as the winner.
