Jeremy Lin Highlights Showcase Passing Ability For Knicks Vs. Kings [VIDEO]

Jeremy Lin of the New York Knicks has generally wowed the crowds of Madison Square Garden with his ability to score the basketball. But on Wednesday against the Sacramento Kings, he took the primary responsibility of point guard seriously and ripped the team defense apart. Lin used pick and roll after pick and roll to set up alley-oop after dunk after alley-oop after dunk.

Lin usually took advantage of big men like DeMarcus Cousins and Jason Thompson hedging out to watch for Lin's dribble penetration. That usually left Tyson Chandler and Amare Stoudemire open, and they got several baskets off of that. Lin's ability to attract so much attention from the Kings defenders gave several Knicks teammates the ability to strike, particularly swingman Landry Fields.

Lin didn't do as much on the scoring end, but he maximized his opportunities and generally made good decisions when he didn't turnover the basketball. Lin's ability to keep his dribble alive slowly wore down the young Sacramento defense, and it was enough to help lead the Knicks to another comfortable victory.
