Jeremy Lin's Beijing Ducks earned a last-gasp win over the Shenzhen Aviators on Sunday in the Chinese Basketball Association.

The Ducks appeared to have let the lead they built in the third quarter slip away, as Shenzhen moved ahead 100-99 with seconds left. However, Lin drew a foul on a desperation three-point shot as time expired, and he converted all three free throws to give Beijing a 102-100 victory.

Lin notched 25 points, six rebounds and four assists in his 34 minutes, and only teammate Ekpe Udoh (34 points) outscored him.

The Ducks improved to 10-4, and they are in action again on Tuesday against the Guangzhou Long-Lions.
