Lin's return produces highest-rated Knicks game


Posted Dec 18, 2012 7:45 PM

NEW YORK (AP) -- Jeremy Lin is still must-see TV in New York.

Lin's first trip back to New York since signing with the Houston Rockets resulted in MSG Network's highest-rated Knicks game of the season, according to the network.

The Rockets' 109-96 victory Monday drew a 4.77 rating, MSG said Tuesday. That's well above the 3.41 average rating for the first 18 games of the season.

Lin had 22 points and eight assists. The undrafted guard from Harvard helped the Knicks earn huge ratings locally and in Asia last season during his memorable first few weeks as a starting point.
