Continuing his recent streak of impressive play, Jeremy Lin dropped 28 points last night as the short-handed New York Knicks took down the Utah Jazz.

Lin led the way for New York with a game high 28 points and 8 assists in his first-career start, while Steve Novak chipped in a season-high 19 points. Amar’e Stoudemire was absent for the Knicks as he returned to Florida to mourn his older brother Hazell’s death, who was killed early Monday morning in a fatal car crash. Carmelo Anthony left just six minutes into the game, after suffering a strained right groin.

Enjoy a look at the Knicks’ short-handed victory below, along with the rest of last night’s NBA action.
