Jeremy Lin canned a three-point basket with less than a second to play, allowing the New York Knicks a 90-87 comeback win over the Toronto Raptors Tuesday night.

The win extends the Knicks winning streak to six games.

Lin made a pull-up jumper from the top of the key with half a second to play, giving New York their first lead since the first quarter.

Lin scored 27 points and a career-high 11 assists in his first game since being selected as the NBA’s Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

On a down note, Lin did commit 8 turnovers.

The 23-year-old Lin, a 6’3, 200-pound guard from Los Angeles, played at Harvard from 2006-2010.

Lin finished his career as the first player in the history of the Ivy League to record at least 1,450 points (1,483), 450 rebounds (487), 400 assists (406) and 200 steals (225). He graduated from Harvard in 2010 with a degree in economics and a grade-point average of 3.1.

He played in 2010-2011 with the Golden State Warriors.

Columbus West High School grad and former Ohio State star Michael Redd scored 17 points in his first start in more than two years, leading the Phoenix Suns over the slumping Charlotte Bobcats, 95-89 over the weekend.

The Bobcats have lost 11 games in a row and 11 straight on the road and has not won a game since January 14 against the Golden State Warriors.

Prior to the Charlotte game, Redd had not started a game since January 20,2010, against the Los Angeles Lakers when he was a member of the Milwaukee Bucks, and had only played just 28 games over the previous two years due to injuries in his left knee.

Starting in place of Jared Dudley who was out with a thigh bruise, Redd made 6 of 12 field goals, 4 of 7 from three-pointers. He has appeared in 10 games with the Suns since signing a one-year contract on December 29.

Orlando’s Howard breaks Chamberlain’s 50-year-old FT record

Wilt Chamberlain is best known for his 100-point game against the New York Knicks on March 2, 1962.

But he also had another record that was not as well known but was a 50-year-old regular-season record. The 7’1 giant set a record on February 22, 1962 with 34 free throw attempts as a member of the Philadelphia Warriors.

Last week, Orlando Magic star Dwight Howard shot 39 free throws in his team’s 117-109 win over the Golden State Warriors.

Prior to the game, Howard was the worst free-throw shooter in the NBA at 42.6%, so the Warriors thought they’d foul him in the post and make him score at the free-throw line.

The 26-year-old Howard took advantage of the situation, making 21 of 39 attempts and finished with 45 points and 23 rebounds.

It was the first time an NBA player scored at least 40 points and at least 23 rebounds since March 1, 2003 when the Lakers’ Shaquille O’Neal put in 48 points and yanked down 20 boards.

Former Ohio State center Byron Mullens may have received the break he’s been waiting for; a trade.

The Charlotte Bobcats acquired the 22-year-old native of Canal Winchester, Ohio from the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for a 2013 second-round draft choice.

The Bobcats hope he can pickup the void left by the loss of Kwame Brown, who left to sign with Golden State Warriors.

The 7-foot, 275-pound Mullens had an up-and-down player with the Thunder. He could not crack the regular or backup rotation playing behind Kendrick Perkins, Nazr Mohammed and Cole Aldrich and spent time in the NBA Developmental League with Tulsa more than in Oklahoma City.

He only played in 26 games the last two seasons.
