The bad news: Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin had another seven turnovers today and he has now turned the ball over 52 times in his eight starts.
[And one of my fantasy teams, Super Lintendo, would definitely appreciate a reduction in turnovers.]
That said, Lin scored 28 points on 11-of-20 shooting in today's win over the defending champions while also setting career highs in assists (14) and steals (five).
Not only has Lin scored 20-plus points in eight of his past nine games, but the Knicks are 8-1 during that span.
With the addition of J.R. Smith, who knocked down three three-pointers in the first quarter today, and the expected return tomorrow of Carmelo Anthony, the Knicks are positioned well going into the second half of the season.
I'm guessing they will make a big jump in our consensus power rankings (tied for 18th last week) tomorrow.
