Jeremy Lin hit a free throw with 4.9 seconds left to overcome a dreadful second half and lift the visiting New York Knicks to their fifth straight victory, 100-98, over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday night. Steve Novak scored 15 points, including the game-tying three-pointer with 36 seconds to play, and Lin used his quickness to draw a foul and get to the line in the closing seconds. He finished with 20 points, eight assists, and six rebounds. Lin had just five points on 1-for-13 shooting and four turnovers in the second half.

The other night, when Jeremy Lin dribbled a basketball at the top of the key and had the audacity to wave off his New York Knicks teammates - four guys standing around doing nothing while the one, Lin, determined the fate of this particular NBA game - I was hooked. We all know what happened. Lin swished a three-point shot to give the Knicks a thrilling victory over the Toronto Raptors and continued on his mission to resurrect New York pro basketball. He also struck a global blow for underdogs.

  Jeremy Lin had an easy night ahead of his toughest opponent yet, and the New York Knicks tuned up for their trip to Miami by beating the Atlanta Hawks, 99-82, on Wednesday night at the Garden. Lin had 17 points and nine assists, sitting out most of the fourth quarter. Carmelo Anthony scored 15 points in his second game back from injury for the Knicks, who led the depleted Hawks by 25 points at halftime.

All-star Deron Williams scored a season-high 38 points, outplaying Jeremy Lin and leading the New Jersey Nets to a 100-92 victory over the New York Knicks on Monday night at the Garden. Lin began his remarkable run against the Nets about two weeks ago, but Williams and the Nets were ready for him this time. Lin finished with 21 points, 9 assists, and 7 rebounds, but Williams outscored him by 36-11 through three quarters, when the Nets led by 18. Lin shot only 7 of 18. Carmelo Anthony, clearly rusty in his return from a seven-game absence with a strained right groin, shot 4 of 11 and scored 11 points.

The 76ers would like nothing more than to sweep into Madison Square Garden and add to the slumping New York Knicks' woes with a win in Sunday's matinee. When the Atlantic Division-leading Sixers dropped an 85-79 decision to the Knicks (18-22) at the Garden on Jan. 11, Jeremy Lin never took off his warm-ups. Lin, the Harvard point guard who now starts for the Knicks, became the talk of the sports world when he led New York to seven straight wins in February. The Knicks looked primed to catch the Sixers and even looked as if they might win the division.

Rajon Rondo had his second triple-double in three games, finishing with 18 points, 20 assists, and a career-high 17 rebounds, and the Celtics ruined Harvard grad Jeremy Lin's return to Boston with a 115-111 victory over the New York Knicks on Sunday. Lin picked up two fouls in the first three minutes and struggled to 14 points in 32 minutes. He had five assists, four rebounds, and six turnovers. The last player to record a triple-double with more than 17 in each category was Wilt Chamberlain, who had 22 points, 25 rebounds, and 21 assists on Feb. 2, 1968.

HOUSTON - For 12 days in December, Houston coach Kevin McHale kept thinking that the player the Rockets had claimed off waivers was an extremely nice kid who played hard and was a pleasure to be around - right up until McHale released him Dec. 24, two days before the start of the season. That kid was New York Knicks point guard sensation Jeremy Lin. "Oh, I thought he'd be an all-star," McHale joked Wednesday. "Did I see all of this? No. If I did we would have cut half of our team.

NEW YORK - This time there was no last-second game-winning shot, no upstaging a long-standing superstar. But the newest sensation known as "Linsanity" maintained his tightened grasp on sports fans worldwide. Jeremy Lin, whose heroics even generated praise from President Obama, enjoyed another stellar starting effort in leading the New York Knicks to Wednesday's 100-85 win over the Sacramento Kings before a sellout crowd at Madison Square Garden that cheered their new hero's every move.

  Jeremy Lin was no match for the Miami Heat. Forcing Lin into easily the worst game of his remarkable run as New York's starting point guard by running streams of defenders at him, the host Heat topped the Knicks, 102-88, on Thursday night for their eighth straight win, all by at least 12 points. Chris Bosh scored 25 points, Dwyane Wade added 22, and LeBron James finished with 20 points, nine rebounds and eight assists for Miami, which will go into the all-star break with the NBA's best record (27-7)

The 76ers suffered another lottery-friendly loss to the Los Angeles Lakers Monday night. Jordan Clarkson's layup with .09 seconds left handed the Sixers a 113-111 overtime setback at the Wells Fargo Center. That enabled the Sixers to stay close to New York Knicks and Minnesota Timberwolves in the battle for the league's worst record. The team that finishes last at season's end has the greatest chance at the top pick in the draft lottery. Just don't ask Sixers coach Brett Brown about the benefits of losing.

LOS ANGELES - The 76ers aren't apologetic about wanting to win. They realize at this point that victories are considered losses for a team that supposedly is tanking to secure a top lottery pick. Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers at the Staples Center - when Nerlens Noel had a scare - was a perfect example. A 101-87 setback kept them close to the New York Knicks and the Minnesota Timberwolves in the battle for the most Ping-Pong balls. The Sixers (17-53) had a two-game winning streak snapped, but this setback was their 15th straight on the road.  However, a lot of the attention went to Noel.

IN AN EFFORT to save his legs, 36-year-old Kobe Bryant often doesn't practice. Yesterday, he participated for the first time in a month. And he didn't like what he saw. Bryant yelled at his teammates collectively and individually during a scrimmage, and got so riled up he even chirped at general manager Mitch Kupchak. "You [bleepity bleeps] are soft like Charmin," Bryant screamed during the session. "God damn, is this the type of [bleep] that's going on in these practices?

The third year of Jeremy Lin's contract was written with the intention of being a problem for whichever team happened to hold his rights when it came due. The Houston Rockets' front office, which included assistant general manager Sam Hinkie at the time, made the three-year, $25 million offer to Lin after his breakout "Linsanity" season with the New York Knicks. The contract, in round numbers, called for $5 million in each of the first two years and $15 million in the third. New York really wanted to keep Lin but declined to match the offer because it would have put the franchise into a deep luxury-tax situation when the third year rolled around.

ORLANDO - Fun. That seems to be the word that best describes this bunch of players who make up the 76ers entrant in the Orlando Pro Summer League. The team plays with incredible speed, led by diminutive guard Casper Ware, who may be securing himself a spot in the league with his play down here, averaging 19 points and close to five assists a game. They have been able to knock down three-pointers at a 37 percent clip, have blocked shots and possess two of the best leapers in this Summer League, in Nerlens Noel and Ronald Roberts.

ORLANDO - 76ers assistant Lloyd Pierce gave Casper Ware two words of advice. "Be yourself," Pierce told Ware heading into the Orlando Pro Summer League. "Don't let the NBA make you passive or feel you have to come in and be something else," added Pierce, who coaches the Sixers' summer-league squad. "Be yourself. Be aggressive. Be defensive. Pick up full court. Attack the paint. " Those are the things that helped Ware become a two-time Big West Conference player of the year at Long Beach State.

ORLANDO - This is the NBA's silly season, when trade rumors fly. As expected, 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie is the most popular guy at the Orlando Pro Summer League. That's what happens when your club is $30 million under the salary cap and teams looking to shed salaries are lining up to make trade offers. "This time of year, there are way more [offers] leaked than real, and way more postured by one team or another than there's any legs to," Hinkie said Tuesday before the Sixers' 92-71 victory over the Houston Rockets at the Amway Center practice court.

It was an obvious question, one that needed an answer. The 76ers focus on the inside game in their defense. But will their seemingly nonexistent perimeter defense make coach Brett Brown reassess that? "At times, it does," Brown said. "You like to have a team that says: 'Tonight we are playing this type of team. We are going to do this.' Then we are playing this type of team, then we are going to do that. "We need to keep it simple for our guys. And sometimes it doesn't work.

APPARENTLY, the company memo about tanking the season was not passed on to the Sixers' players. With their star rookie and floor general Michael Carter-Williams sitting out with an injured left foot, it was another chance for the Sixers to easily add another pingpong ball to their NBA draft-lottery chances, facing a Houston Rockets team sans James Harden (bruised left foot) but a team still able to put Jeremy Lin, Chandler Parsons and, of course, Dwight Howard on the floor. But this 2013-14 Sixers team is a resilient bunch, giving rookie coach Brett Brown everything it has every night.

LeBron James stretched his arm above the rim, soaring high on a shaky knee and turning his steal into a finishing dunk as Carmelo Anthony hung his head near midcourt. The Heat took the Knicks' best shot, but it wasn't good enough to beat the defending champs. Nothing is right now. James had 29 points, 11 rebounds, and 7 assists, and Miami tied a franchise record with its 14th straight victory, rallying for a 99-93 win at Madison Square Garden on Sunday. It avenged a pair of 20-point losses to the Atlantic Division leaders early this season.
