As featured at NBA on Wednesday night, the Knicks won against the Kings, their seventh straight win this season, with Lin not playing in the entire fourth quarter and played for a total of 26 minutes only.

As noted in the scoreboard, New York Knicks dominated the first three quarters and Sacramento Kings lead the scores of the last quarter but was not enough to win the game (25-17, 29-19, 23-19, 23-30).

Nevertheless, the Knicks controlled the ball game with Bill Walker and Steve Novak making 14 points each; while Tyreke Evans led the Kings with 19 points, followed by DeMarcus Cousins with 15 points and Isaiah Thomas, who was booed every now and then, had 14.

Lin, who was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week in last week’s pick despite being undrafted in the 2010 NBA Draft, had 10 points, 13 assists (his highest so-far) and 5 rebounds that night.

That night, the 23-year old American-Taiwanese NBA player recorded his second consecutive double-double and third of his career, with Landry Fields leading the New York with 15 points.

Apparently, the New York Knicks is still fresh from their last game on Tuesday, February 14, where they beat Toronto Raptors in a 3-point shot buzzer beater by Jeremy Lin in less than a second remaining in the ball game, with the final score of 90-87.
