Jeremy Lin With Career High 13 Assists, Kings Lose 100-85 To Knicks

Yeah, you thought the Sacramento Kings would be the ones to derail Linsanity?

The Kings dedicated a lot of effort to try and hold down the New York Knicks phenom and decided to ignore the fact that four other Knickerbockers were on the court. Jeremy Lin put up a career-high 13 assists along with 10 points and five rebounds, as New York undid Sacramento's defense with excellent ball movement. The Knicks piled up 25 assists and shot 50% from the field, as Landry Fields (15 points, 10 rebounds, 5 assists), Bill Walker and Steve Novak (14 points each), Amare Stoudemire and Imam Shumpert (11 points), as well as Jared Jeffries (10 points) all had solid shooting nights.

Tyreke Evans had 19 points, DeMarcus Cousins added 15, and Isaiah Thomas added 14 off the bench. The Kings shot 38% from the field and received meager production from their forwards, as Jason Thompson, J.J. Hickson and John Salmons combined to put up five points.
