Jeremy Lin Receives Standing Ovation in Toronto

Jeremy Lin

Jeremy Lin’s first game as a Toronto Raptor got off to a heart warming start.

The Toronto crowd gave their newest point guard a standing ovation as he entered the game with 4:05 left in the first quarter.

The gesture did not go unnoticed by the Harvard graduate.

The Atlanta Hawks bought out Lin’s contract earlier this week and he immediately began working out a deal with the Raptors. The team is second in the Eastern Conference and is expected to compete for a spot in the NBA finals.

Lin told reporters he’s tired of watching the playoffs from home and said “he almost feels like I’m cheating” joining a good team.

Lin scored eight points, five rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block in 25 minutes of play. The Raptors beat the Washington Wizards 129-120. This is his ninth season the in the NBA.
