(NEW YORK) — Jeremy Lin showed another side to his game on Wednesday night against the Kings (10-19) at Madison Square Garden. He dished out 13 assists and got the Knicks back to .500 with a 100-85 win.
Chants of “MVP! MVP!” poured through “The World’s Most Famous Arena” as Lin and Carmelo Anthony sat on the bench joking with each other in the third quarter.
Lin only had 10 points but the rest of his team did the scoring in the rout.
“As a point guard, my field goal attempts have been really high and I don’t think that’s necessarily good,” Lin said. “I think it’s more of my job to distribute and get people in rhythm.”
Landry Fields was the beneficiary of those assists with 15 points as the Knicks (15-15) won their seventh straight game with Lin in the lineup.
Former vice president Al Gore and ex-heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson were in the house to witness the latest outbreak of Linsanity.
