Palo Alto High grad Jeremy Lin of the New York Knicks got into foul trouble early and struggled throughout the game during a 115-111 overtime loss to the host Boston Celtics on Sunday before a national television audience. Lin finished with 14 points, five assists, four rebounds and six turnovers in 32 minutes. Lin, however, was at his best in the final moments of regulation with Boston holding a 94-89 lead. He made the second of two free throws, stole the ball and made a layup and then hit a three-pointer to get the Knicks to within one point.

New York held a 103-100 lead but gave up a three-pointer to Paul Pierce just before the buzzer, instead of fouling him and giving up just two points -- still winning the game. New York is 10-4 since Lin entered the lineup back on Feb. 4 and became an instant celebrity as the Knicks won seven straight.
