Jeremy Lin gets videobombed by Nelly after Hornets win (Video)
The Hornets turned a 23-point deficit into an improbable 91-88 win on Monday and Jeremy Lin had a lot to do with it.
Charlotte scored just seven points in the first quarter and was down 51-36 at halftime to the Spurs, who looked like they would comfortably be on their way to another victory. However, the Hornets had other ideas.
Courtney Lee scored 14 points in the third quarter and Lin took over in the fourth, dropping 15 of his 29 points in the final period. The end result was the largest lead surrendered by the Spurs since Tim Duncan was drafted in 1997.
After the game, Lin received a well-deserved ice water shower during his interview with Dell Curry. He also received a visit from Nelly.
It wasn’t quite Linsanity again, but it wasn’t far off. And, that the Hornets comeback was against the Spurs makes it that much more impressive and completely justifies Nelly temporarily going crazy.
