HOUSTON, Feb. 5 (UPI) -- Jeremy Lin pumped in 28 points Tuesday and the Houston Rockets tied an NBA record with 23 three-pointers in their 140-109 dismantling of Golden State.

Lin netted five treys as the Rockets went 23-for-40 overall from long range en route to its fifth win in six games.

Houston's 3-point performance equaled a league mark set by the Orlando Magic in a 2009 game against Sacramento.

James Harden (18 points) and Chandler Parsons (16) each contributed four treys in the one-sided victory.

The Warriors got 20 points from Jarrett Jack but couldn't contend with Houston's long-range assault as they fell for the first time in five games.

David Lee provided 18 points and seven rebounds in the loss.
