Jeremy Lin drained five of Houston's record-equaling 23 three-pointers on Tuesday as the Rockets romped to a 140-109 NBA victory over the Golden State Warriors.

The Rockets matched the NBA record with their 23 from beyond the arc, the long-range barrage lifting them to a fifth win in six games.

Lin finished with 28 points as the Rockets notched their highest-scoring game of the season. Their 14 three-pointers in the first half also tied an NBA record -- even though their best three-point shooter, Carlos Delfino, was sidelined by a right elbow injury.
