Around this time last year, Linsanity was sweeping through the nation. Jeremy Lin had jumped from the D-League to the New York Knicks' starting lineup, breaking Shaq's record for most points scored in his first five career starts. While Linsanity has significantly died down since then as Lin now runs the Houston Rockets' offense, the 24-year-old was able to briefly muster up some of last year's magic on Sunday night.
Late in the second quarter against Sacramento, Kings point guard Aaron Brooks tried to score in the paint but Lin blocked his shot attempt. Lin then recovered the loose ball and quickly started a fast break.
Even with James Harden on his right, the Harvard alum never looked like he was going to give up the ball. Lin attacked the basket head on and threw down a one-handed dunk over Francisco Garcia.
Almost everyone on the Rockets bench got out of their seats as the Sacramento crowd oohed and aahed.
Unfortunately for Houston, Lin didn't do much else after the monster dunk as the Rockets fell to the Kings, 117-111.
