The “Linderella’’ story grew again as Jeremy Lin sank a game-winning free throw with 4.9 seconds left that capped a wild Knicks comeback and an improbable 100-98 stunner over the Timberwolves at the Target Center. The win extended the Knicks’ “Linning streak’’ to a season-high five games and capped a Saturday-to-Saturday stretch that’s one of the greatest in Knicks history.
“It was an ugly one. It was a gutsy one,” Lin said. “It was a road win, everyone was tired. That’s the beauty of this team. We never gave up.’’
