Jeremy Lin leads Hornets to first playoff win in 14 years

Lin scored 18 points to lead Charlotte to a 96-80 rout over the Miami Heat.

Boom. In case you missed it.. Over the weekend, Jeremy Lin stepped up with 18 points to lead the Hornets to a 96-80 rout over the Miami Heat and helping Charlotte nab their first playoff win in fourteen years.

Lin Leads Hornets in Playoff Win

Miami took the first two games over Charlotte in the opening series of the Eastern Conference playoffs. But in game three, the Hornets stung back. The win is the Hornets' first in the playoffs since 2002, and snapped a 12-game playoff losing streak that would have tied the NBA's longest with another defeat.

Charlotte' bench outscored Miami's 34-13 on Saturday night, led by Jeremy's team-high 18 points off the bench. He also added four rebounds, four assists and a steal in 26 minutes.

And, of course, here's a video of Jeremy's highlights from Saturday night:

All the while, rocking that Sokka-style tie-back.

The Hornets have a chance to even the series at home on Monday. Here's hoping Jeremy keeps bringing it.
