Jeremy Lin Welcomes The Knicks To His New Home
Last season the phenomenon known as “Linsanity” swept the nation as a relatively unknown backup point guard for the New York Knicks, Jeremy Lin, went on a scoring tear and turned around the season for the New York Knicks. From nightly highlights on ESPN, to features on late night television and endorsements, Lin took the nation by storm with his great back story, awesome play and humble demeanor.
What was also unexpected was the departure by Lin to the Houston Rockets when the Knicks decided not to match Houston’s contract offer to Lin, deeming it too expensive. Now, this coming Friday, the red hot Knicks, currently at 8-1 and sitting atop the Eastern Conference, visit the Houston Rockets at the Toyota Center and take on their former teammate Lin and new acquisition James Harden, who is currently tied with Carmelo Anthony for fourth in the NBA in scoring.
The action tips off at 8:00 ET. If you’re looking for tickets, you can check out the best deals on the secondary market right here at SeatGeek.
