Every morning, we'll give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.
I'm getting a real kick out of this Jeremy Lin thing. It's probably, literally, the most improbably story to actually unfold this season. With Mike D'Antoni basically shutting his eyes and pulling this kid off the bench, there was no way in hell we could have predicted three-straight 20-plus point games. There is not a single person in the world who could have called that.
Lin did it again last night, and before you say "yeah, but it was the Wizards"... he did it against John Wall, who is pretty good. Granted, Wall is getting NO help at all. Here's exhibit A.

The New York Knicks newest star Jeremy Lin is already a fan favorite. The Asian-American Harvard graduate has become the NBA’s newest playmaking sensation. He’s earned more than 60,000 Twitter followers in just five days. Maybe he’s just a flash in the pan, maybe not. At least he’s disproved the stereotype that Asians can’t drive. -TO
Jeremy Lin got a chance to play this past Saturday against the Nets, backing up Iman Shumpert at point guard for the Knicks. Six points, three rebounds and three assists in the first half later and Lin found himself on the court for most of the second half in a Knicks' win.
It wasn't just the numbers that were impressive about Lin, either. The former Harvard point guard...
