Linsanity continues to reign over the NBA as Jeremy Lin and the New York Knicks take on the Minnesota Timberwolves. Battled the fatigue of back-to-back games, Lin managed to score 20 points with eight assists, six rebounds and three steals. His 20+ point game streak rolls to 5 games. His last point in the game gave the Knicks the go ahead point. At the free throw line, Jeremy Lin made 1-of-2 shots to hand New York a 99-98 lead with just 4.9 seconds left on the game clock. Definitely a nail-biting finish to this game.
In the post game interview, he talks about playing 7 games in 10 days and continues to praise his teammates. Having a break until Tuesday will help him and the rest of the team recuperate. It’s been a surreal week for Jeremy Lin. On the term “Lin-sanity”, he stated that it should be changed to something team related. It’s not a one man show, it’s a team effort.
His stat line as a starter for the Knicks makes him look like an all-star with 27.3 points, 8.3 assists, and 4.0 rebounds per game with average play time of 39:30 with 51.3 shooting percentage.
