Houston Rockets guard Jeremy Lin has arrived in Taiwan to play in his parents' homeland.

The Rockets will face the Indiana Pacers in an NBA preseason game Sunday in Taipei.

Lin, the NBA's first American-born player of Taiwanese descent, says it's "a kind of once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to come play here where my parents are from."

The game Sunday is the second NBA exhibition in Taipei in four years. The Pacers played the Denver Nuggets in October 2009.
