A night after scoring 29 points while Charlotte rallied from 23 down to beat the San Antonio Spurs, Jeremy Lin carried the Hornets again Tuesday night.

Lin scored 21 points and Nicolas Batum had 23 to help the Hornets beat the Brooklyn Nets 105-100.

"Jeremy Lin was huge for us," Batum said. "In the third and fourth, he stepped up again for us. He did it last night in the second quarter to give us life, and he did it again tonight. I don't think we would have won that game if he didn't step up again for us."

Brook Lopez had 29 points, nine rebounds and a season-high six assists and Sean Kilpatrick added a career-high 25 points for the Nets.

Batum hit two big shots down the stretch to key the win. Batum had a four-point play to put Charlotte up 91-84 with 4:11 left and a 3-pointer to extend the lead to 96-88 with 2:44 remaining.
