    Shuriken Toss & Spirit Lance proc Linken's Sphere/Lotus Orb of secondary targets

    Linken's Sphere and Lotus Orb are only supposed to proc when being the primary target of a single-target spell. Currently, they proc on the bounces of Shuriken Toss and Spirit Lance as well, causing these unwanted behaviors:

    1. Linken's Sphere hard-counters the bouncing, ending it immediately (making aghs pretty much worthless on these)
    2. Lotus Orb can bombard Bounty Hunter or Phantom Lancer with a flurry of shurikens/lances when multiple heroes have the Lotus Orb buff (also makes aghs worthless, as you reflect 2 shurikens)


    As a comparison, other bouncing spell do not proc these items on their secondary targets.

    Repro:
    1. Pick any hero and buy Linken's sphere/Lotus Orb
    2. Have a enemy Bounty Hunter and get tracked by him
    3. Get hit as a secondary target by Shuriken Toss/Spirit Lance

    Result: Linken's Sphere blocks the shuriken/lance, so that it does not continue to bounce to other (tracked) heroes. Lotus Orb reflects the shuriken/lance. If you add Aghanim's Scepter to Bounty Hunter, Lotus Orb may reflect it a second time if it bounces back on you again.

    Expected: Shuriken Toss/Spirit Lance should proc Linken's Sphere only when primary target. In this case, it should stop it from bouncing as well. It should completely ignore the spheres of secondary targets. Lotus Orb should also only proc when primary target and ignore bouncing shurikens/lances.

    Soul Bind uses same mechanic as Lotus Orb. This bug affects Soulbind as well.

    Shuriken Toss + Soul Bind results in FIVE shurikens being launched.
