Jeremy Lin Gets A Bloody Nose Against Cleveland Cavaliers [VIDEO]
New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin suffered a bloody nose on Wednesday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
You always hear the phrase in basketball, “No blood, no foul.” Where is the phrase, “If there is blood, it’s a foul?” Jeremy Lin got whacked in the nose inadvertently by Cleveland Cavaliers center Omri Caspi but no foul was called. If I was Lin, I would’ve gone up the officials while pointing to my nose like, “Seriously!?” Lin’s nose isn’t believed to be broken.
At least Dwyane Wade didn’t cause Lin’s injury. Wade accidentally broke Kobe Bryant’s nose during the 2012 NBA All-Star Game on Sunday. The Knicks rallied from a 12-point halftime deficit to beat Cleveland 120-103 on Wednesday night. Jeremy Lin scored 19 points to go along with 13 assists and only one turnover. 19 points, 13 dimes, only 1 turnover, and 1 bloodied nose? That’s a good night’s work, Linsanity. Well done.
