Indianapolis: Jeremy Lin again starred for New York with 19 points to lead the Knicks over the Indiana Pacers 102-88 on Saturday night and improve to 3-0 under Mike Woodson, the team's interim coach.
Lin, NBA's first American-born player of Chinese or Taiwanese descent, made it seem almost like a Knicks home game. Hundreds of mostly Asian fans arrived an hour early and surrounded the visitor's entrance to catch a glimpse of their hero, many wearing his No. 17 jersey. During the game, he got the loudest cheers. Lin, who is still adjusting to the enormous amount of attention he has received, was taken aback.
Old-school Pacers like Reggie Miller might have lost their lunches hearing a Knicks player draw cheers in Indiana.
