MIAMI (AP) — Jeremy Lin and the New York Knicks are headed to Miami for their final game before the All-Star Break.
On Wednesday, Lin had an easy night in a 99-82 win over the Atlanta Hawks.
Lin had 17 points and nine assists, sitting out most of the fourth quarter in a rare game during his remarkable run that the Knicks needed little from him.
Carmelo Anthony scored 15 points in his second game back from injury for the Knicks, who led the depleted Hawks by 25 points at halftime. New York has won nine times in 11 games since Lin joined the rotation.
LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and teammates have been asked repeatedly in recent days about the ex-Harvard guard, and coach Mike D’Antoni was told the word out of Miami is the Heat will be waiting for the Knicks’ back-to-back Sports Illustrated cover boy.
