What's with all these forgotten role players stepping up to shine at Madison Square Garden? With the Mavericks threatening to take over in the fourth quarter, Steve Novak took control of the game with a trio of three-pointers to send the MSG crowd into a fury. The best part? His swagtastic celebration, putting on the championship belt after he nailed his last one. Enjoy after the jump:
RODGERS! Discount double check! Novak's scoring burst apparently inspired Jeremy Lin, who responded with two more three-pointers, giving the Knicks a 98-95 lead with two minutes left in the game. Novak has 14 points in 21 minutes on 4-of-5 from long distance, while Lin has 28 points and 12 assists in 43 minutes. This one looks like it'll go down to the wire.
