Jeremy Lin has done it again. Lin hit the game-winning three-pointer with less than a second left and New York stunned Toronto on the road, 90-87. The Knicks trailed by 11 in the second half, but stormed back behind the defense of rookie Iman Shumpert and the 4th quarter scoring of Lin (12 of his 27 came in the last quarter).
With under two minutes left, Shumpert made a huge steal of Jose Calderon (25 points), and then at the other end Lin converted a basket plus the foul to tie the game. Then, Lin hit the game-winning dagger from the top of the key. Lin finished with eight turnovers, but had 11 assists.
That’s six wins in a row for the Knicks, who are unbelievably just one game under .500. They host the Kings Wednesday in the Garden.
