Jeremy Lin Leads Hornets Back from 23-Point Deficit to Stun Spurs

The Charlotte Hornets trailed the San Antonio Spurs 30-7 early in the second quarter Monday. By the end of the night, a throwback to Linsanity had Charlotte escaping with a 91-88 win.

Jeremy Lin scored 29 points off the bench – including shooting 4-of-4 from beyond the arc – and grabbed seven rebounds to spark the Hornets, who outscored San Antonio 55-37 in the second half. Cody Zeller grabbed 14 rebounds for Charlotte.

The Hornets are now 14-4 since the All-Star break.
