Are you ready to go Linsane?
After stunning the crowd last weekend by coming off the bench to score 25 points and lead the New York Knicks to a victory over the New Jersey Nets, Jeremy Lin started in Monday night's game against the Utah Jazz. Lin played for 45 full minutes (while star player Carmelo Anthony was taken out of the game early on with an injury) and led his team to victory for a second night in a row, scoring 28 points to break his own record for points per game.
The Knicks have upcoming games this week against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday, and the Los Angeles Lakers on friday. Until Anthony has recovered, Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni will be putting extra pressure on his team, particularly Lin.
I am riding him like Secretariat, the coach said.
