Knicks Vs. Timberwolves Final Score Update: Linsanity Continues, Knicks Win Again

It wasn't exactly dropping 38 points on the Kobe Bryant-led Lakers, but Jeremy Lin drilled the second of two free throws as time wound down in regulation to put the New York Knicks on top in their 100-98 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday night.

Lin struggled from the field, hitting just eight of 24 field-goal attempts, but connected when his team needed him most. Lin ended up with 20 points and eight assists, and the Knicks have now won each of the four games in which he has started. More impressively, Lin and the Knicks got the job done without their top two players, as Carmelo Anthony continues to rest his groin injury and Amare Stoudemire remains with his family as they mourn the loss of his brother, who was tragically killed in a recent car accident.

The Knicks struggled to contain Minnesota's Kevin Love, who finished with 32 points and 21 rebounds, but held the Timberwolves to just 11 fourth quarter points.
