13 assists in 26 minutes tonight, looks like he's done for the night with NY up by 27.
Even though the points were down, this was one of his better games, save for a stretch late where he had 3 quick turnovers. This was the first time I saw him play the role of pure point guard and not look to score first, and the results were good. The scoring was spread out well; Landry led the team with 15, Novak and Walker had 14 a piece, and four other guys scored double figures.
On the turnovers: It's been pointed out a couple of times that he has more turnovers in his first 6 starts than any player since sometime in the 1977-78 season, and while that's obviously not a great thing, it's also a bit misleading. He's had the ball in his hands pretty much all game every game, so while the number of turnovers seems unusually high, his turnover rate is actually a very decent 17.73%. Here's how that stacks up against some of the best PGs in the league:
Once Anthony comes back and he and Lin are splitting some possessions, and if Baron Davis ever plays minutes off the bench, Lin's raw turnover numbers will likely drop pretty significantly.
