Lin Has Career-High 13 Assists as Knicks Defeat Kings 100-85

Feb. 15 (Bloomberg) -- Jeremy Lin had a career-high 13 assists as the New York Knicks began a five-game homestand with a 100-85 win against the Sacramento Kings.

Lin contributed 10 points as seven Knicks players scored at least 10 points at Madison Square Garden in New York tonight to take the team’s winning streak to seven games.

Harvard University graduate Lin last night became the only player to score more than 20 points and win each of his first five starts since the National Basketball Association merged with the American Basketball Association in 1976.

Lin, 23, wasn’t drafted after graduation from Harvard and then was cut by two NBA teams before being signed by the Knicks on Dec. 27.

During their 8-15 start, the Knicks used Toney Douglas, Iman Shumpert and Mike Bibby at point guard before turning to the 6-foot-3 Lin.

Lin scored 28 points in his first career start against the Utah Jazz on Feb. 6 and then had 23 points and 10 assists in a win against Washington two days later. He contributed a career-high 38 points against the Los Angeles Lakers on Feb. 10, had 20 points against Minnesota the following day. Last night, he hit the winning three-pointer in the final second in Toronto and totaled 27 points and 11 assists.

The Knicks, who lost 11 of 13 games prior to the Feb. 4 win against the Nets, continue their homestand against the New Orleans Hornets Feb. 17 before hosting the NBA champion Dallas Mavericks two days later.
