To nearly being cut to one of the NBA Players of the Week. What a time it's been for Jeremy Lin..
Lin started off with a surprising performance against the New Jersey Nets from the previous week. Then he got the start the next three games and put up three great performances in a row. He earned Eastern Conference Player of the Week honors for his efforts.

Lin put up 28 points, eight assists and two steals against the solid Utah Jazz, then put up 23 points, ten assists and four rebounds playing the Washington Wizards, and culminated his week with an incredible performance against the Los Angeles Lakers, putting up 38 points, seven assists, four rebounds and two steals. He slowed down the following game against the Minnesota Timberwolves (hitting the wall in the second half), but did hit the game-winning free throw to ensure victory.
