Oct. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Jeremy Lin scored 17 points as the Houston Rockets beat the Indiana Pacers 107-98 in an exhibition game in Taiwan, his parents’ native country.

Lin made three of four 3-point attempts and went 6-for-8 from the floor while also converting both his free-throw attempts at Taipei Arena last night. James Harden led Houston with 21 points.

Lin, a Harvard University graduate and the first Chinese-or Taiwanese-American to play in the National Basketball Association, joined the Rockets from the New York Knicks in July 2012. His parents emigrated to the U.S. from Taiwan in the 1970s.

Houston is seeking to parlay interest in Lin in Asia into merchandise sales and sponsorship income to help it recoup the $25 million it has promised to pay the 25-year-old point guard over three years.

The Rockets, who built a following in China during Yao Ming’s nine seasons with the team, beat the Pacers 116-96 Oct. 10 in Manila.
