Jeremy Lin Returns To Madison Square Garden To Face Jimmer Fredette, Sacramento Kings

Jeremy Lin has done it all with the New York Knicks since becoming a starter and he will return home to Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night to take on the Sacramento Kings. That means a potential matchup with Jimmer Fredette, should the coaching staff decide to play him, and a chance to show his former coach, Keith Smart, who made the dumb decision to not play him last year in Golden State.

(I'm sorry for the pun.)

Anyway, Lin and the Knicks will take on the Kings at Madison Square Garden with tipoff coming at 4:30 p.m. locally in Sacramento. It will be very interesting to see how the coaching staff tries to defend Lin; my guess is they will try and bully him with Tyreke Evans and then frustrate him with the quickness of Isaiah Thomas, but that's just me. For as much fun as Jimmer vs. Lin would be, it would probably get pretty ugly on the defensive end of the court for Sactown.

Fearless Lin Prediction: 29 points, 9 assists, 5 turnovers in a big Knicks victory.
