New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin did it again.

In a Tuesday night game against the Toronto Raptors, Lin hit a game-winning pull-up 3-pointer over Jose Calderon with less than one second left to defeat the Toronto Raptors at the Air Canada Centre, 90-87. The win pushed New York to 14-15 on the season.

On the winning play, Knicks center Tyson Chandler pulled down an offensive rebound and the Knicks spread the floor for Lin, allowing him to go one-on-one. He patiently waited as the game clock wound down and then pulled up just in time to confidently knock down his shot.

Lin scored 12 points in the fourth quarter and finished with a game-high 27 points, 11 assists, 2 rebounds on 9-20 shooting in 43 minutes. He also had 8 turnovers.

The shot propelled New York to its sixth straight win and continued what has now been more than a week of heroics. Lin delivered the game-winning point against the Minnesota Timberwolves, by hitting a late free throw, on Saturday night and scored a career-high 38 points to top the Los Angeles Lakers at Madison Square Garden. 

The strong play comes after Lin, a Taiwanese-American who was undrafted out of Harvard, was nearly cut by the Knicks earlier this season. He was previously released by both the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets prior to the beginning of the 2011-2012 season.

It's incredible. I'm impressed with this guy and watching these videos, Lin is the coolest guy on the court and looks like a natural! Big things for him I hope, someone new needs to take the spotlight

D Rose will humble this kid and make him realize just how far he has to go.  This kid is a great story but it only because he plays in NO D-antonio's offense.  Look at Steve Nash (not a MVP on Dallas) and what raymond felton did last year, and more importantly what hes not doing this year.  Its fun to watch this guy to this, but everyone needs to calm down a bit.

Show the GAME!

First, I am not an NBA fan.  I watch occasionally during the playoffs, but my passion is saved for other sports.  I find myself drawn to this story, and wanted to watch the game last night.  Searched DirecTV, and the only way for me to see the game was NBA Season Pass.  Maybe TNT, NBC or ESPN, ESPN2, 3, 4, or 47 could show the game?  Get with the program networks - this is the hottest story in sports!

Derrick Rose just landed expanded his Adidas deal to about $250 million because it's going to saturate the Asian market. 

This kid is about to be so freakin' rich it's not even fathomable.

I find myself helplessly impressed. This isn't a guy who was a four-year star at a major school, got drafted too high, then gets all the credit for handing off to Willis McGahee so he can get in Matt Praeter's field goal range. Lin is doing it by being offensively proficient himself, as well as making his teammates more proficient. His energy and confidence are top notch, while not being over the top. Amazing story thus far.

Necessity is the Mother of Invention

The Knicks were desperate.  They had no experienced guards to lead the offense.  They HAD to give Lin a shot. They had no other choice.  What Lin has done has exceeded their wildest dreams.  Baron Davis' injury will now cause him to be, at best, a number two guard in this offense.  This team, franchise and soul now belongs to Lin until, for whatever reason, he decides to relinquish it.  His actions continue to make Mayweather, the racist, look like a fool.

Reading a whole lot about "bad defense" on Calderon's part.  I didn't watch the whole game but from the highlights and from previous games, he gets to the basket easily.  Game is tied, Calderon has to respect Lin's drive.  If Lin gets to the basket he's going to score or he's going to get fouled trying to score.  He's had a ton of And 1's already.  Lin doesn't miss many free throws either.  I'm guessing Calderon laid off him hoping he would take the three and miss and they go into OT.  So to remind you basketball geniuses out there, what's an easier shot: a three or a layup?I don't think Calderon is a good enough defender to challenge the shot and stop him from getting to the basket.  Maybe Toronto should've had DeRozan on Lin that last posession.  But that's my take on everyone saying lousy defense from Calderon without paying attention to the whole situation. 

Loving the Lin story, just incredible!
