point guard Jeremy Lin didn't have a particularly good game on Tuesday night against the Raptors in Toronto. Yes, he put up 27 points and 11 assists, but he also struggled with his decision-making to turn it over eight times. The Knicks' offense struggled for much of the night, and Lin was part of that.

But that's insignificant to the story of the game. Down nine points with just 3:57 left in the fourth quarter, Lin helped engineer a 13-1 closing run to extend the Knicks' winning streak to six games. He also hit the game-winning shot: this cold-blooded three-pointer in Jose Calderon's face with just 0.5 seconds on the clock. As if that weren't enough, he also completed a game-tying three-point play with 1:05 left. In winning time, he took over.

Lin's current media profile is at a level usually reserved for the game's biggest superstars, and maybe that's a little goofy given his talent level. But the kid can play, clearly, and the sheer unpredictability of this story is hard not to love. By all reasonable considerations, it's amazing that he's in the league at all, let alone starring for one of the NBA's marquee franchises.
Plus, this isn't a fluke. Despite his earlier struggles, he was in control at a time when the Raptors were falling apart. If 27 and 11 is an off-night, then the kid belongs.

And yet, some self-important guy says no one here cares about Linsanity. Truly insane.
