Jeremy Lin reinjures hamstring, but Nets earn win on buzzer-beater

NEW YORK -- Jeremy Lin left the Brooklyn Nets' game againstCharlotteon Monday night in the third quarter with a strained left hamstring.

The Netsovercame the loss of Lin and a 14-point deficit in the third quarterto beat the Hornets 120-118 victory on a buzzer-beating 3-pointer from Randy Foye.

It's the same injury that forced Lin to miss 17 games earlier this season.

Lin landed awkwardly and was limping after he was fouled on a drive to the basket early in the third quarter. He stayed in, made the free throws and helped lead a spurt that eventually gave the Nets a brief lead, but then didn't run down court after missing a reverse layup and walked toward the Brooklyn bench to say he needed to come out of the game.

He finished with 17 points against his former team.
