Jeremy Lin was the last Rocket called during the Rockets' pregame introductions. And he was announced to a loud, cheerful crowd at the Garden on Monday night.

Lin is making his return to MSG tonight for the first time since last season, when Linsanity was heard around the world.

On the first Rockets' offensive possession, he faked Raymond Felton out to the baseline and then cut backdoor for the reverse layup.
