Jeremy Lin continued to lead the Knicks, scoring 10 points in the quarter on just seven shots, but he also turned the ball over three times and missed a pair of free throws. Still, the Knicks will continue to live with Lin's turnover because of everything else he brings. Check out this play to steal back the momentum at the end of the quarter:
Meanwhile, Dirk Nowitzki proved once again to be a one-man comeback. The Mavericks forward exploded for 13 points in the third quarter, making all four of his shot attempts. He even converted a four-point play. Check the video:
At this point it's old hat for Dirk. On Friday, Nowitzki tied the Sixers 24-24 in the second half alone (!!!) leading the Mavericks to a comeback road win in Philadelphia.
