> Just came across this tweet-fact from Jessica Camerato: Two years ago today, Jeremy Lin was claimed off the waiver wire by the New York Knicks. Crazy. Then in a little over a month from being picked up, Lin would come off the bench with 25 points and 7 assists to lead the Knicks over the New Jersey Nets in what would be the beginning of Linsanity.
Despite it technically being his fourth NBA season, in actualiy Lin has less than two years or real NBA game experience.
YAY! Jeremy Lin had 29 points, 8 assists, and 6 rebounds. He shot 12-22 overall and 3-5 from three. Hitting two crucial threes in the last couple minutes to put away the OKC Thunder. Here’s video evidence!
Oh, what a game. Houston started out fast with Chandy and Jeremy putting up big numbers in the first quarter. Houston would lose their focus before ultimately ending the game on a high note.
With Chandy sidelined by a injured ankle that he sustained in the thrd quarter, Beardy and Jeremy Lin rekindled their friendship and together, they dropped 75 points on the Oklahoma City Thunder in a 122-119 win.
Harden had a career high 46 points and Lin added 29 points, including two big three-pointers that gave the Rockets their first lead in the game, and another that pushed the Rockets ahead by six with under a minute to play.
Houston was down 14 points with about 7 minutes remaining, but rode Beardy down the stretch. Beardy, who hit a half-court shot like a free throw to end the third quarter, was unstoppable in the fourth; driving into the lane and hitting big jumpers against his former team.
Not a lot of players make me stand up and shout at the screen, but James Harden is one of those players. Always in complete control, it’s almost as if Beardy has the ball on a string and constantly putting players on their heels before either blowing by them or stepping back for a relaxed jumpshot.
