Welcome to the Jeremy Lin Show

Jeremy Lin comes off the bench, plays his ass off and helps the Knicks come from behind to beat the Nets.

"The Hero From Harvard." You could hear the rumbles from New York, all the way to the west coast. Saturday night, it was all about Jeremy Lin. The third-string guard set Madison Square Garden on fire, coming off the bench to play his ass off and help the Knicks come from behind to beat the Nets.

Lin's career night leads Knicks over Nets, 99-92.

Jeremy finished with a career-high 25 points and 7 assists in 35 minutes. It's hard to overstate how amazing and how impressive his performance was -- jumpstarting the Knicks, cutting through the Nets' defense and absolutely electrifying the crowd.

Here's a handy video cut together from the highlights of Jeremy's big night, all the way down to the fans' chants of "Jeremy! Jeremy!":

Mind blown. I'm going to be honest -- I actually got kind of choked up while watching this video. The kid from Harvard goes pro and makes good. In a big way. We've been dying to see the kid get off the bench and show the world what we knew and hoped he could do. And with a great attitude, on top of that.

If you weren't a believer before, you better be one now.
