Jeremy Lin's having another great night for the New York Knicks against the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Target Center. But the rising star may need more than that to beat Ricky Rubio and the T'Wolves, who closed the first half strong to take a 62-54 lead into halftime.

Rubio, who has eight points, five assists, two steals, and no turnovers, darted through the Knicks defense for a lay-up to extend Minnesota's lead to eight points. And he's gotten a lot of help from Kevin Love, who already has 20 points and 11 rebounds and is well on his way to a monster night.
Lin has 15 points, and will probably easily clear 20 points for the fifth straight game, and also has four assists, two rebounds, and two steals. But his teammates are struggling to get into rhythm, with Landry Fields, Tyson Chandler, Iman Shumpert, and Jared Jeffries all getting two fouls in the first half.
