NBA: Lin’s amazing story gets a thrilling finish
NBA » Guard’s game-winning shot at Toronto further burnishes his story


< Previous Page


Scouts and general managers may have missed Lin when he went undrafted two years ago, but people all over the NBA are watching him now. The reaction to his winner on Twitter was similar to one of LeBron James’ or Blake Griffin’s huge dunks.

"It’s crazy!" Phoenix guard Steve Nash wrote. "I’m watching Linsanity hoping every shot goes in. Hope I never grow up."

But Lin deflects the praise to his teammates, even though they were going nowhere until he started getting real minutes on Feb. 4.

"It’s not because of me, it’s because we’re coming together as a team," Lin said. "We started making these steps earlier but we were still losing close games and so obviously it wasn’t fun. But when you win, that solves a lot of problems. We’ve been winning and we’ve been playing together."
