Jeremy Lin is reliving “Linsanity” for the Charlotte Hornets with recent great games against the San Antonio Spurs and Brooklyn Nets. “Linsanity” is the unexpected NBA phenomenon that happened during his time with the New York Knicks in four years ago.

“I think being comfortable and not thinking as much on the court and letting the ball fly and having fun. Shots are going in and I think that helps me, helps open up my drive,” Lin said post-game the Nets win via NBC Sports.

How good was Jeremy Lin the past two games? Watch the highlights below:

Last Monday, Lin scored 29 points against one of the top NBA teams in the Spurs with 15 points in the fourth quarter of the big comeback victory where the Hornets trailed by as many as 23 points.

On Tuesday, he had 21 points and 4 assists in a win over the lowly Nets. The victory was crucial as it put the Hornets in a tie with the Miami Heat in fifth place in the Eastern Conference with 41 wins against 30 losses so far this season. Both teams are just half game behind third and fourth place teams Atlanta Hawks and Boston Celtics, who have 42 wins against 30 losses.

Can Lin continue his scorching run in the final games of the regular season? In the past two games, Jeremy Lin has shot 19 of 30 from the field and has averaged 30.5 minutes per game.

The Hornets have 11 games left in their schedule and they have a serious shot of gaining a first round homecourt advantage in the 2016 NBA Playoffs. Jeremy Lin, with his responsibility off the bench, will play a vital role for the Charlotte team looking to be among the top four in the Eastern Conference.

The Hornets are hoping that Jeremy Lin will continue to play without thinking much and just having fun on the court so he can be effective in the final games of the regular season and the playoffs.
