“There wasn’t a better way for Mike D’Antoni to spend Super Bowl Sunday yesterday than debating whether to start Jeremy Lin at point guard for the Knicks tonight against the Jazz.
Instead of the coach wondering about his job security, “The Jeremy Lin Game” Saturday provided the Knicks renewed hope there is a point-guard alternative on the roster not named Baron Davis.
Thank you, Harvard.
Lin’s career-high 25-point, seven-assist performance was like watching a Disney movie. Reality could bite tonight.
Lin’s domination of Nets star Deron Williams could go down as either a fluke or — in D’Antoni’s dreams — a momentous night in franchise history. The speedy Lin snaked into the lane at will, sank jumpers and tossed lobs for alley-oop dunks.”
