New York Knicks and Jeremy Lin defeat Atlanta Hawks, 99-82

February 23, 2012

After hearing so much about his sudden rise to stardom, I finally had the chance to see Jeremy Lin in the flesh last night when I shot the New York Knicks game for Madison Square Garden. The Knicks defeated the Hawks, 99-82, for their 9th win in 11 games after a 8-15 start to the season. Lin was solid with 17 points and 9 assists. In his three weeks playing for the Knicks, he’s put up incredible numbers: 30 points and 12 assists per 48 minutes. Lin has also graced the cover of Sports Illustrated two weeks in a row, a first for a New York-based athlete. Photos by Avi Gerver, ©Madison Square Garden, L.P.
