Did you think the Linsanity had died after Friday’s (Feb. 17) loss? Think again.
The New York Knickerbockers saw their 7-game winning streak snapped Friday with a loss to the New Orleans Hornets. New superstar Jeremy Lin had an uncharacteristically (well, uncharacteristic for his last several games) poor game, committing nine turnovers.
But he bounced back Sunday (Feb. 19) against the Dallas Mavericks, scoring 28 points, earning 14 assists. He still had seven turnovers, which is a bit of an Achilles’ Heel, but it was enough to power the Knicks over the Mavs 104 to 97.
There were no last-minute heroics like in the win over Toronto on Valentine’s Day, but Lin did have almost half his assists in just the fourth quarter. The next chance to catch “Linsanity” is when the Knicks take on the New Jersey Nets Monday night (Feb. 20) at Madison Square Garden.
