Mavs Vs. Knicks Halftime: So Much Jeremy Lin To Talk About

The Knicks lead the Mavericks by a score of 48-45 at halftime on Sunday. Jeremy Lin leads New York with 12 points and six assists and J.R. Smith has come out gunning in his Knicks debut. At the other end of the floor, New York has had no answer for Dirk Nowitzki, who has 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting.

But this Mavs-Knicks matchup is less a basketball game than a three-hour opportunity for America to talk about Jeremy Lin. It's really the perfect end to a week that has been all about #Linsanity. Fortunately, the biggest story in sports has continued to do what's he's continued to do: play good, fun basketball.

Here are Lin's first half highlights:
