The Jeremy Lin hype machine is in full gear right now. With NY Knicks stars Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire having underwhelming seasons so far, the Asian-American PG out of Harvard has taken New York by storm. Wednesday night while playing the Wizards in D.C., Lin brought the road crowd to their feet after finishing a quick crossover on John Wall with the dunk:
The fact that Lin received a standing ovation for scoring on the home team says everything you need to know about the 5-21 Wizards this season. Lin finished the game with 23 points and 10 assists, leading the Knicks to a 107-93 victory. In the last three games Lin is averaging 25.3 ppg and 8.3 assists while shooting a blazing .580 from the field, all Knick wins. Not bad for an undrafted kid out of Harvard that’s been sleeping on a friend’s couch.
Looks like the Knicks point guard woes may be settled for the time being. ”Linsanity” is real, folks.
