Lin Credits God as Knicks Continue Winning Streak

Ad Feedback

New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin is continuing his amazing run, leading the Knicks to a seven-game winning streak.

Fans are still talking about the ending of Tuesday's NBA game between the Knicks and the Toronto Raptors.

With the game tied and less than six seconds remaining on the clock, Lin fired the winning shot just before the buzzer sounded to win the game.

President Obama, who is a huge basketball fan, is also avidly following the exploits of Lin.

"He is very impressed and fully up to speed," White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters.

Just a few weeks ago, Lin was a little-known player who had been cut from two NBA teams and was out of work.

Since signing with the Knicks, he had been sleeping on his brother's couch.

The 23-year-old has become an overnight sensation, but through it all, he's given God the glory.

"The important thing for me is where faith comes in," he said. "It can't change me. I still recognize that I am a sinner and that won't change no matter how I play on the court."

Lin credits his success as a "miracle from God."
