'Lin-Sanity' takes over Brooklyn

"Lin-Sanity" has taken over Brooklyn as point guard Jeremy Lin lights up the scoreboard for the New York Knicks.

The Harvard grad was virtually unknown when he joined the team late last year, but his high-point performances have grabbed the city's attention.

Lin averaged 27 points and eight assists in his first four starts, has already been named an NBA player of the week and netted a career-high 38 points against the Lakers last Friday.

Brooklyn fans say "Lin-Sanity" is contagious with many starting to sport his No. 17 jersey.
