After his jaw-dropping performance in Saturday night’s game, the same question was on every Knicks fan’s mind:
Can Lin do that again?
Tonight, boy did he prove he was no one-game wonder. Scoring a new career-high 28 points and dishing out another new career-high eight assists, Lin led the short-handed Knicks to their second win in a row by defeating the Utah Jazz 99-88.
The Knicks were without Amar’e Stoudemire, currently in Florida with his family mourning the loss of his brother, Hazell Stoudemire, who passed away in a car accident. My heart goes out to STAT and his family.
The team also lost Carmelo Anthony to a groin injury in the first quarter. He went back to the locker room, got checked out, and joined the team on the bench in his street clothes.
Nevertheless, the remaining roster pulled through. Definitely made my Monday, watching this Knicks game. Props to the boys for getting the win. Let’s keep it up, Insha’Allah.
