Mike D'Antoni announced that he will start Jeremy Lin at point guard Monday night against the Jazz, following Lin's 25-point performance on Saturday against the Nets.
The Knicks have already started three other point guards, with Toney Douglas, Mike Bibby and Iman Shumpert receiving the call.
“This is a system that is beneficial to attacking point guards,” Lin said. “That’s what I try to do.”
Lin has attached himself to assistant coach Kenny Atkinson, who is a master at working with players and keeping them sharp mentally.
“That’s the thing, people like Kenny working behind the scenes and never get the recognition,” Lin said. “Kenny has been unbelievable every day.”
