Jeremy Lin electrified the crowd at Madison Square Garden once again as the Knicks earned a come-from-behind 104-97 victory over the defending champion Dallas Mavericks.

Lin set a new career-high with 14 assists to go along with 28 points, including huge fourth quarter buckets to bring New York back.

The Knicks’ newest addition, J.R. Smith, hit three 3-pointers in the opening quarter to help New York to a 32-20 lead. Smith had 15 for the game.

Then, trailing by as many as twelve in the second half, Lin and Steve Novak sparked the comeback with sharp shooting from long range. Novak finished with 14 points, including 4-of-5 from 3-point range.

Tyson Chandler contributed a double-double, 14 points and ten boards.

Dirk Nowitzki led the Mavs (20-12) with 34 points.

New York won for the eighth time in the last nine games, improving to 16-16, as they prepare to host New Jersey on Monday night.
