Knicks Vs. Mavericks: Jeremy Lin Shines Again, Knicks Battle Back For 104-97 Win

Jeremy Lin and the New York Knicks played host to the Dallas Mavericks Sunday afternoon at Madison Square Garden, looking to keep the good times rolling and the Linsanity in full effect against the defending NBA Champs. And behind another stellar performance from the Palo Alto native, the Knicks erased a large second-half deficit to earn the 104-97 victory.

Lin would finish with another impressive double-double of 28 points, 14 assists, five steals, four rebounds, and four steals in 45 minutes on the floor. His turnover problem reared it's ugly head in the second half with six after only one in the first half, and was 11-20 from the field and 3-6 from downtown.

J.R. Smith scored 15 off the bench for New York in his return to the NBA after starting the season overseas in China, while Amare Stoudemire, Landry Fields, Steve Novak, and Tyson Chandler all finished with doulbe-digit points as well.

As for the Mavericks, Dirk Nowitzki dropped 34 on 11-20 shooting for Dallas, but it would ultimately prove not enough.

The legend continues.
