Jeremy Lin, essentially the fourth point guard for the Knicks, has become something of an icon in recent days in New York City.
Behind the Super Bowl champion New York Giants, Lin is putting up impressive numbers since Saturday against Deron Williams and the Nets.
In his last two games, Lin's stat line has been 25 points and seven assists against New Jersey, and 28 points and eight assists against The Jazz.
With Amare Stoudemire grieving in Florida over the death of his brother, Hazelle, and now Carmelo Anthony sidelined with a groin injury, Lin's heroics have come at the perfect time.
It still isn't clear whether or not Lin will be the answer for the Knicks at point guard, but for the time being, he is surely a good remedy.
Not only does Lin score, but he sees the court well and moves the ball extremely well. He isn't a great shooter, getting the majority of his points in the paint, but he is doing pretty well, going 10-for-19 and 10-for-17.
Lin has proved he can hang with Williams, so if he continues his current trend, he should have no trouble keeping up with Wall.
Amare is likely to return next Monday, and Melo will be out one to two weeks from Monday, so as long as Lin can continue to flourish and move the ball, the Knicks may be able to hang around and survive without their two stars.
