Jeremy Lin Game Winning Shot Versus Raptors [VIDEO]

Nine days into Linsanity, is there really anything that surprises anybody anymore when it comes to New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin? The Palo Alto native continued what has turned into an almost preposterous magical run and added his first game-winning field goal. Lin hit a three with 0.5 seconds left on the road against the struggling Toronto Raptors to cap a double digit comeback in a 90-87 Knicks win.

Jeremy Lin Game-Winner

Lin scored 27 points in the victory including the final six points to cap the comeback. In scoring 27 points, Lin passed Shaquille O'Neal for the most points scored through the first five starts of an NBA career. Although Lin played with the Golden State Warriors last season, he received limited time and no starts.

In his last six appearances, the last five of which were starts, Lin has scored at least 20 points in each game and been a pivotal part of the Knicks unexpected turnaround. New York has won all six of the games during the Lin explosion and now sit at 14-15 and six games back of the Philadelphia 76ers.
