Jeremy Lin led six Knicks in double figures with 28 points and 14 assists (another double double) as New York got back on the winning track with a 104-97 home victory against a hot Dallas team on Sunday afternoon. LINsanity is back!! The Knicks faced the Mavericks, which is the best defensive teams and the defending champions. Jeremy Lin was matched up against Shawn Marion, one of the best defenders in the league. In clutch moments, the Knicks point guard hit big shots as part of an efficient day (11-for-20 from the floor). Not only was he effective on offense, but he also had five steals in his seventh victory as a starter. His effective distribution of the ball gave him a career high 14 assists.
In the post game interview, Lin stated “They’re obviously a great defensive team, a great team altogether. You can’t just win a championship by not being a great defensive team. We came out and we moved the ball and we had a lot of people that contributed tonight. Across the board the efficiency was there from everybody. When you play like that on offense and you have a lot of weapons, something’s going to open up, something’s going to give.”
