Pretty soon, Nash will capture the hearts of New Yorkers — not in a brief Jeremy Lin way, but instead in a Mark Messier way.
East Rutherford, Newark or Brooklyn. The Houston Rockets win no matter where the nomadic Nets call home.
“It’s only been one year, but it seemed like so long ago,” Lin said. “…It was definitely a whirlwind (and) I definitely enjoyed it. I definitely learned and grew a lot as a person…”
Rockets beat Brooklyn 119-106 on Saturday night for their 12th consecutive win over the Nets.
The Brooklyn Nets are looking to re-establish their recent momentum, while the Houston Rockets are hoping they’ve already begun doing just that.
The return of Stoudemire shouldn’t really be a big deal. It’s very clear that Anthony, the main man no matter who is on the Knicks, has to get the overwhelming majority of his minutes at the four.
From a faux-glow phenom to the storm that ravaged the area and an incredibly tragic school shooting, 2012 was anything but a quiet year in the Tri-State. As we prepare for 2013, CBSNewYork takes a look back at the most talked about stories of the year.
It’s hard to separate the Jeremy Lin — the man from the myth.
Invaders beware: You’re going to have to bring your best to the Garden floor if you wish to escape MSG with a victory.
In the end it was Lin, with 22 points and eight assists, leading the Rockets to victory. A familiar romp on the Garden court.
His old fans booed him. His old friend clobbered him. Otherwise, it was Linsanity all over again at Madison Square Garden.
So far this year, Lin certainly hasn’t shown much to make anyone think that the Knicks did the wrong thing by letting him go.
Cheer him, boo him, whatever — The bottom line is that Jeremy Lin has been a non-factor since leaving New York.
Linsanity was a short, but spectacular time in Knicks’ history. Even though he’s gone, the New York Knicks’ locker room is filled with Lin admirers.
Kyrie Irving put in a memorable performance as the Cavs gave the Knicks everything they could handle. New York escaped with a tight victory.
