Jeremy Lin was marvelous in his return to MSG, as the Houston Rockets took down the NY Knicks, 109-96 last night! Lin and the Rockets spoiled the Knicks perfect 10-0 home record! It was Linsanity, Lin(sane) dialed up 22 points, eight assists and four boards! James Harden scored a game-high 28 points and 10 boards, and Carlos Delfino knocked back threes for 16 points! For the Knicks, Melo was out, former D-League All-Star Chris Copeland (in place of Melo) scored a career-high 29 points, Tyson Chandler snagged a season-high 18 boards, and Raymond Felton hit 14 points! J.R. Smith scored 17 points, and Pablo Prigioni added 14 points off the bench! The Rockets protected the paint, and forced the Knicks to shoot from range the entire game! The Rockets evened out at 12-12, while the Knicks dropped to 18-6! Chandler did hit Lin with a ‘Welcome to NY’ elbow (flagrant foul) during the game; check out the video below!
