Linsanity invades Canada as Knicks sink Raptors

The New York Knicks rookie continued his miraculous form with a game-winning three-pointer last night.

YESTERDAY, WE FEATURED a piece on the meteoric rise of Jeremy Lin’s NBA career.

Last night, the 23-year-old sensation took it to a whole new level in Toronto.

The New York Knicks are tied 87-87 with the Raptors deep into the fourth quarter when Lin receives the ball. With the crowd on its feet and less than a second on the board, the Harvard graduate shoots, and scores a three-pointer to claim the victory.

In what was only his fifth career start, Lin was instrumental in helping the Knicks extend their winning streak to six games.

Watch the final moments unfold here:
