Linsanity Returns in L.A. Victory

NBA via New York Knicks(LOS ANGELES, Ca.) -- On a night reminiscent of the mania that swept the NBA community by storm three years ago, "Linsanity" carried the Lakers to a 118-11 overtime victory against the Boston Celtics.

Jeremy Lin brought out his best game as a Laker as he completed 10-15 from the floor Sunday night, leading L.A. with 25 points. 

The win snapped a seven game losing streak for Los Angeles (14-41), but they didn't make it easy. The Celtics (20-33) rallied from seven points down with less than 30 seconds to go in the game. Avery Bradley knocked down a three pointer at the buzzer to tie the game at 106 and send it to overtime.

The Celtics, who announced that Jared Sullinger would miss the remainder of the season before tipoff, could not find an answer to stop Lin. He would be the catalyst in overtime as he would knock down two baskets and dish out three assists.

"Jeremy Lin killed us the whole night," Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said. "He was really effective in a lot of ways -- not only scoring the ball, but also getting into the paint and making plays for others."
