The Kings visit the Knicks tonight. New York has won six straight, all behind the stylings of Jeremy Lin, an undrafted Harvard alum who had been waived twice this season before catching a break with the 'Bockers. Lin has been on a tear, and last night became a part of an exclusive club of players to rack up a six-game streak with at least 20 points and six assists per game.
Six games of 20 and six. Not bad, kid.
Tyreke Evans has six 20-6 games this season. He had 11 in an injury-ravaged 2010-11 season. As a 20-year-old rookie, he had 24 of those games (including one four-game streak). Heck, as a rookie he averaged 20.1 points and 5.8 assists for an entire season!
Lin's story has been amazing and immutable. But he doesn't want any of Tyreke Evans. I have a feeling Linsanity is going to take a break, effective Wednesday night.
