Jeremy Lin With 9 Assists, Knicks Lead Kings 54-36 At Halftime

The Sacramento Kings have come in with a concerted effort to make sure Jeremy Lin doesn't beat them with his scoring. Lin does only have six points on two-of-four shooting and it seems Sacramento's trapping and focus on Lin have kept him from doing any scoring damage.

And of course, Sacramento is down by almost 20 because the Kings have totally ignored everyone else. Lin has distributed nine assists to various players like Landry Fields and Tyson Chandler. Fields is shooting 4-5 from the field and has 11 points, seven rebounds and three assists. Tyson Chandler and Amare Stoudemire have nine points each in support.

The Knicks have held the Kings to under 33% shooting. Tyreke Evans and DeMarcus Cousins have combined to shoot 3-16, which is a guaranteed recipe for a loss. Marcus Thornton has 13 points to lead Sacramento, who are in a deep hole to start the second half.
