Hairsanity Unleashed 35 pts in OT Thriller Win against the Raptors
What a full-blown HAIRSANITY game in an 109-99 OT thriller win against the Raptors!
Jeremy Lin started in Batum’s absence and unleashed 35pts/4asts/5rebs/2blks/3TOs/4PFs in 47 min!
He finished with +11 in +/- in the game.
His 8-of-9 shooting in the first half set the tone for this game.
Jeremy simply had a knack to produce Linsanity games against the Raptors:
- 02/14/12 27pts/11ast/2reb/1stl in 90-87 Knicks win. Linsanity
- 03/20/12 18pts/10ast/3reb/1blk/1stl in 106-87 Knicks win
- 11/27/12 16pts/10ast/4reb/3stls in 117-101 Rockets win
- 11/11/13 31pts/1ast/5rebs/1blk/2stls in 110-101 Rockets 2 OT win
- 12/17/15 35pts/4asts/5rebs/2blks in 109-99 Hornets OT win
Since Raptors is a dinosaur resembling a dragon, it might be appropriate to give a new nickname for Jeremy Lin as “the Dragon Slayer”.
