Happy Va-Lin-tine's Day!
The New York Knicks are coming off a spectacular two weeks, having won their past five games. With their two biggest stars out head coach Mike D'Antoni had to rely on a patchwork lineup. But the absence of Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire has only enhanced point guard replacement, Jeremy Lin's, mystique as he went from being an anonymous bench warmer to the the Knick's leading scorer and playmaker. After playing just 54 minutes in the first six weeks, He's played 195 minutes over the last five games. His workload should ease with Stoudemire back on the lineup and Anthony returning later this week, but the Knicks will continue to lean heavily on Lin as their primary point guard. I guess will see if Lin can continue to impress as the Knicks take on the Toronto Raptors at 7pm tonight.
