Jeremy Lin made a tiebreaking 3-pointer with less than a second to play and the New York Knicks rallied to beat the Toronto Raptors 90-87. That runs the Knicks’ winning streak to six games.
The NBA’s first American-Taiwanese player, Lin had 27 points and a career-high 11 assists in his first game since being named Eastern Conference player of the week.
The season-high crowd of 20,092 roared as Lin drained a pull-up jumper from the top of the key with half a second to play, giving the Knicks their first lead since the opening quarter.
Toronto’s Rasual Butler airballed his attempt at the buzzer as the Knicks swarmed their newest hero at center court.
