Lin Hits Game Winner as Knicks Beat Raptors

Even after his amazing week, this one took Linsanity to a whole new level. Against Toronto on Tuesday, it was Lin for the win!

Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin made a tiebreaking 3-pointer with less than a second to play to cap his finishing flurry of six straight points and New York rallied to beat the Raptors 90-87, extending its winning streak to six games.

“I’m just glad it went like this so we can calm the Linsanity down,” cracked Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni.

No chance of that. The NBA’s first American-Taiwanese player, Lin scored 27 points and added a career-high 11 assists in his first game since being named Eastern Conference player of the week.

“He continues to impress every night,” New York’s Jared Jeffries said. “Every game he plays better, he does more and more to help us win basketball games. You can’t ask any more of a kid coming into this situation.”

While he’s the one standing in the spotlight, Lin said sharing success with his teammates is as big a reward.

“It’s not because of me, it’s because we’re coming together as a team,” Lin said. “We started making these steps earlier but we were still losing close games and so obviously it wasn’t fun. But when you win, that solves a lot of problems. We’ve been winning and we’ve been playing together.”

Making just his fifth career start, Lin had no hesitation in taking the decisive shot. Continue Reading…

Demi Moore Hospitalized After Inhaling Whip-its Full Of Nitrous Oxide

Demi Moore Hospitalized After Inhaling Whip-its Full Of Nitrous Oxide: Demi Moore was doing “whip-its” — a type of nitrous oxide inhalant — before she was rushed to the hospital earlier this week, TMZ reported.

The troubled actress became semi-conscious and had symptoms of a seizure after inhaling a dangerous amount of nitrous oxide — a gas typically inhaled by young people looking for a cheap high — a friend told paramedics who attended the scene, the gossip site reported.

The 49 year old was rushed to the hospital from her home in Los Angeles late Monday night, before checking into a treatment facility Tuesday to reportedly seek treatment for substance abuse.

Her rep said that she was seeking “professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health.”

However friends of the star said she went to rehab because she is “emotionally and physically exhausted” over her painful split with Ashton Kutcher, who is “acting like a teenage boy,” the New York Post reported.

One friend told the newspaper that Kutcher, 33, who was spotted partying with Brazilian supermodels Monday at Sao Paulo fashion week, continues to flirt with women while still calling his ex “when he is at a low moment.”

“Demi was talking to Kobe Bryant at a CAA Golden Globes party, and Ashton came over and made a scene,” the source told the newspaper. “He made jealous comments to Kobe, then Ashton went to the bar and was openly flirting with other women.” Continue Reading…

Gabrielle Union Throws Dwyane Wade A Birthday Bash

Gabrielle Union Throws Dwyane Wade A Birthday Bash: Actress Gabrielle Union threw her Miami Heat superstar boyfriend Dwyane Wade a 30th-birthday party at the Setai Hotel in South Beach on Sunday.

Clearly, it was quite a party; days after the event it’s still trending highly on the Internet.

The bash was reportedly filled with celebrities, including Usher, Rick Ross, T.I. and, of course, many of Wade’s teammates.

To make the night complete, singer Kelly Rowland serenaded the birthday boy with a seductive version of “Happy Birthday,” according to the Huffington Post.

Too bad his teammates didn’t assist Rowland and act out the lyrics, as they did for the Heat’s 2011-2012 music video of “Turn Up the Lights.”

Among the gifts Wade received were a 2012 McLaren MP4-12C, a vintage 1982 bottle of Dom Perignon and a diamond encrusted Hublot 3000 watch.

Wade’s grandiose week could come to an abrupt end Thursday evening when Kobe Bryant and the Lakers play the Heat in the teams’ first game this season.
