According to New York Post that day, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg took time to watch the game, where New York Knicks won against Dallas Mavericks (104-97), their first home win vs Mavs since 2006.

As reported earlier, Jeremy Lin made 28 points and a career-high 14 assists, leading his team to their 8th win, after their first lost via New Orleans Hornets last Friday, where he scored 26 points, 5 assists but with 9 turn-overs.

Meanwhile, CNBC‘s sports business reporter Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) tweeted that Zuckerberg sat in $1,200 seats, noting that “he can spend that every min for 10K days & still have $”.

On the other hand, NBA posted a photo also via Twitter of the 27-year old billionaire shaking hands with film maker Spike Lee, a noted huge Knicks fan, who was then wearing a Jeremy Lin jersey in high school at Palo Alto.

Apparently, it was not clear which team Zuckerberg was cheering for but he once attended school at Harvard University, where Lin finished a course in Economics before landing at NBA.
