No one ever said Jeremy Lin is perfect. But the Knicks are with Lin as their point guard.
Lin’s worst game as since becoming a starter still turned out to be a thing of beauty as he capped the Knicks comeback by making one free throw with 4.9 seconds left as the Knicks rallied to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 100-98 for their fifth straight win.
They are 4-0 with Lin in the starting lineup but last nights’ victory was less about Lin and more about the way the Knicks defended. They held the Wolves to just 11 fourth quarter points and three field goals while improving 13-15.
