KINGS Projected Starting Line-up:
PG: Tyreke Evans
SG: Marcus Thornton
SF: John Salmons
PF: Jason Thompson
C: DeMarcus Cousins
Key Reserves: Jimmer Fredette, J.J. Hickson, Donte Green
The Jeremy Lin show returns to MSG tonight, expect a huge ovation from the Knicks faithfuls during the starting line-ups. He deserves it. If LINSANITY stopped today, we should all be very thankful to Jeremy for the 6 game winning streak, but most likely the LINNING continues.
Amare makes his return to MSG since his brothers passing, he’s looking to get acclimated to the Lin offense as well.
Come on, you already know, its Lin vs Evans. This should be a good tester for Lin, Evans is a big guard that attacks the rack relentlessly. He controls the pace wonderfully. Lin must make him work hard on the other side of the floor. Stopping the pick and roll will be the Kings top defensive assignment.
Knicks – Besides the game-winning shot by Lin last night against the Raptors, Shumpert defense won the game. Expect more Shump tonight, MDA will most likely have to help out Lin with stopping Tyreke Evans.
Knicks- Carmelo Anthony OUT, Baron Davis OUT, Josh Harrellson OUT
