The Jeremy Lin legend continues to grow.
The “Linderella’’ story grew again as Jeremy Lin sank a game-winning free throw with 4.9 seconds left that capped a wild Knicks comeback and an improbable 100-98 stunner over the Timberwolves at Target Center.
The win extended the Knicks’ “Linning streak’’ to a season-high five games and capped a Saturday-to-Saturday stretch that’s one of the greatest in Knicks history.
With the score tied at 98, an exhausted Lin tore down the lane one last time, got crunched by two Timberwolves, picking up the foul and won the game from the free-throw line. He also had the key pass on the game’s biggest basket — a game-tying 3-pointer from Steve Novak with 36.2 seconds left.
