True, we haven't heard much about "Linsanity", but he has played quite well. I agree that it could be good for Lin. He could fly under the radar a bit. And since Lin is so willing to slash, he could really take advantage of the increasing number of doubles Harden will face. There is going to be room to penetrate when they swing the ball.
If you watch the highlights against the Pistons, there was a lot of slashing and "drive and kick" going on between Harden and Lin. One attracts attention and the kicks to give the other a running start at the rim or an open perimeter look. They also ran well together in the open court. They have really good chemistry considering that Harden just showed up in Houston right before the start of the season. They look like they had at least a full pre-season together.
On an unrelated note, but still about Houston, McChale still has not played T-Jones, Royce White and Montiejunas. For now at least, Rockets def looking to win and not about developing the youngters. Montie looked good in a couple of summer league games but can't sniff the court right now.
