It was a match heading to the end with both teams in a tie of 87-87 and with just a second to go, guess who showed up? Jeremy Lin gave the Knicks their sixth consecutive win against the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday. The Harvard graduate with roots in Taiwan, gave more reasons to the media and the basketball-loving public to shower him with unending attention when pulled a magical three-pointer to give the New York Knicks a 90-87 win with seconds to end the match. Lin showed his worth by scoring 27 points and giving 11 assists in game that could have gone either way. Perhaps the three-pionter was a response to Mayweather’s statement on the social media site Twitter that he is only being talked about because of his Asian roots, but not for his talent. In other games LeBron James played a crucial role in Miami Heat’s 106-90 win over Indiana by scoring 23 points. The Heat have won all their three matches by at least 10 points, something no team has been able to do for the past 42 years. Oklahoma Thunder continued their winning form by winning their eigth consecutive game 111-85 against the Utah Jazz, with James Harden and Kevin Durant scoring 22 points and 21 points respectively. The Chicago Bulls played against Sacremento without their MVP point guard Derrick Rose, who is out nursing a back injury, but managed to win 115-112. DeMarcus Cousins stood out for the Bulls, scoring 28 points. [Image Via] YummySports
