(TORONTO) — The Linsanity train rolled into Toronto on Tuesday night and departed with its sixth straight win with Jeremy Lin in the lineup.
Lin hit a last second three-pointer to give the Knicks (14-15) a 90-87 win over the Raptors (9-21) on Tuesday night. A season-high crowd of 20,092 witnessed the Linsantity and Jose Calderon was the victim this time.
Calderon had the duty of guarding Lin but he was no match and had an up-close view of the pull-up jumper from the top of the key that gave the Knicks their first lead since the opening quarter with a half a second left to play.
“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.”
“I’m just glad it went like this so we can calm the Linsanity down,” joked Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni.
The Sacramento Kings (10-18) will be the next team in line to try and stop Lin tonight at Madison Square Garden.
