Jeremy Lin 11-Point Outburst in the 4th Quarter Sealed Nets 11th Win; Great Team Effort
What a great team win for the Nets!
Jeremy Lin flashed his Linsanity games in scoring 11 points in the 4th quarter playing with 5 fouls and battled non-calls from the refs throughout the game. He finished with 18 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist with 5-10 shooting and 3-7 from 3pt-line in only 24 minutes even when he started slow with 1-5 shooting.
A confident Jeremy Lin run down the clock and took a deep three from downtown to extend the lead to 10 points (116-106 with 1:43 left in the 4th quarter). He shushed the crowd as if it were a gesture of relief after a tough start that he had with not getting calls from the referees throughout the game and he survived playing with 5 personal fouls without fouling out.

Sean Kilpatrick also had an incredible statistics to score 23 points with only 3-5 shooting because he managed 16/17 FT shooting. Foye had 14 points with a perfect 4-4 three-point shooting. Rondae-Hollis Jefferson and Caris LeVert chipped in with 12 points and 14 points. Brook Lopez did not score much to finish with 8 points, 4 rebounds, and 2 assists against a formidable Marc Gasol but he helped to provide 3 screens for Lin in the game.
All game long the Nets continued to fight and relentlessly attack the rim when Marc Gasol was resting on the bench. Quincy Acy fouled out after doing a great job defending Zack Randolph.
Finally, the Nets fans had a chance to witness a dose Linsanity unleashed from the bottle despite Lin still playing a restricted 24 minutes in his 6th game back from injury. The Nets have been missing a leader and a scorer who can take over and close the game strongly. Welcome to the Nets, Linsanity!
