Last night the New York Knicks went on the road and faced off against the Toronto Raptors.
While I wouldn’t call this game a definitive “Linsanity” moment as he has been very consistent over the last 5 games … it was something to behold as the Raptors took a shot at Lin every chance they could while he surpassed each and every obstacle they threw his way.
Bringing in a total of 27 points and 11 assists, Lin stay poised on the road and the crowning moment of the night came within the final 5 seconds of the night as Lin boldly took the potential game winning shot… and made it.
Call it what you will; love him or hate him. However, you must give credit where credit is due. Lin was – and still is – an underdog… and underdog on a team with three of the best 4 & 5’s in the game and has seemingly become the missing piece to the puzzle.
Only one question remains… can Melo come back and play alongside Lin? I personally don’t have any theories on this since I’d prefer to wait and see what happens after a few games with Melo back in the lineup but what are your thoughts?
