J-Lin leads Knicks in debut!

”It’s fun, you can actually draw a play up and (say), this might work,” Coach D’Antoni said. ”So it was good.”

”Basketball’s so fun when you play on a team where people want to work together and work through tough times and overcome them and have victories like this,” Lin said. ”This one was ugly and we lost a couple of players, but this team has a lot of will.” – foxsports

#MSG Jeremy Lin AKA J-Lin is giving NY something to talk about. He led the Knicks with a career-high 28 points + eight assists in his first career start, last night! The Knicks (10-15) went on to win, 99-88, over the Utah Jazz (13-10)! They also did it w/o the help of #Stat and #Melo! #Stat is dealing with his brother’s sudden passing, and #Melo left after six minutes due to a groin strain! Unfortunately, #Melo will be out for one to two weeks with his injury.

Lin has scored 53 in his first games with minutes on the floor for the Knicks. Lin only played in 29 games for the Golden State Warriors last year, and was cut by the Rockets after a four-day tryout this year! Move over Victor Cruz, here comes J-Lin!

The NY Giants were in MSG, and received a standing ovation from the crowd!

But  no amount of sleep-depravation could dull their adrenaline at the reception from  the Garden crowd.nypost
