NBA Tweets from Last Night: Twitter Shows Fans Are Desperate for More Linsanity

The Twitter party last night was bumping Linsanity tweets all night long.

Jeremy Lin finally came back, after dropping 38 points in an overtime loss to the San Antonio Spurs. It was the most he scored since pouring in 38 last year against the Lakers, when Amar'e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony were both out.

Coincidentally, James Harden was out last night, which gave Lin more opportunities to dominate the ball.

Caught this guy tweet-stealing. Definitely against the code of Linsanity.

During Lin's breakout last night, ESPN's Michael Smith asks a thought-provoking question:

This is about the time when we knew Linsanity was building up. When Jeremy Lin starts hitting off-balance three-pointers, it is time to tune in.

Knicks' beat writer Frank Isola, who will never forgive Jeremy Lin after not playing at 85 percent down the stretch last year, uses sarcasm to express his disinterest in Linsanity.

This guy seems like a true Rockets fan.

Not really.

Of course, no matter how well Lin plays, there will always be the haters, skeptics and @NotBillWalton's.

Good call by @Netw3rk. Jeremy Lin always looks like he had been tortured following a Linsanity game. When his legs give in, his face lets you know it. You can question his game, but not his motor.

This guy is so pumped he added a "Hollaaaaaaaa" at the end of his tweet. Normally I would say this unacceptable, but not during Linsanity.

Lin got caught over-dribbling on the final possession that could have allowed him to be the hero. This is definitely a weakness of Lin, and it might have cost the Rockets big time down the stretch.

It is definitely important to note that this is his first full NBA season. To come to a conclusion on who Jeremy Lin is as a player so far would be irresponsible. Lets give him a few years in the league before we decide what tier he falls in.

Whether this was the start of something or an isolated occurrence, it was great to see Linsanity get back into full swing. Lin seems to be at his best with the ball in his hands, so we will see how this plays out once Harden returns.
