Houston Rockets player Jeremy Lin hands out Thanksgiving dinners to families

HOUSTON

Lin celebrated the holiday with a turkey giveaway. His foundation handed out turkeys and all the trimmings to 100 families. Lin says helping out is something that is important to him.

"There are things that are bigger. We play basketball, which is a game but this is life, especially around the holidays," he said.

The Rockets host the Chicago Bulls tonight at 7pm.
