"Lin-sanity" and the Knicks lose to the Heat
The "Lin"-sanity may have quelled a bit following Miami's trouncing of the New York Knicks 102-88. Chris Bosh scored 25 points, Dwyane Wade added 22 and LeBron James almost had a triple double as Miami's defense clamped down on Jeremy Lin as the Heat stretched their winning streak to eight games. James finished with 20 points, nine rebounds and eight assists for Miami, which will go into the All-Star break with the NBA's best record at 27-7. Lin shot only 1 for 11 from the field, finishing with eight points and three assists. He also committed eight turnovers, six in the first half when the game was close. He had been averaging 23.9 points and 9.2 assists in New York's last 11 games.
