Breaking Down Houston Rockets 3PT Shooting by Quarters

There are definitely some interesting data from Basketball Reference 3PT% shooting.
How effective and consistent  is the 3PT shooting by quarters for Houston Rockets players in 2012-2013 season.

Here are the graphical illustration of players and an anomaly for Jeremy Lin:

Without going into further analysis, the most interesting question is certainly why Lin can achieve such high 60% 3PT% for the Knicks in 2011-2012 but only 12% for Houston Rockets in 2012-2013?

Does Lin need to handle the ball more to have the confidence to shoot 60% 3PT in the 4th quarter as he did for the Knicks last season? Perhaps.
