New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin wrote another chapter to his incredible story this weekend. This time, he outdueled Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers and guided the Knicks to a fourth straight win.

This was Lin’s fourth start for the Knicks and his team has not lost during that stretch. Lin beat Derek Fisher on this play. The Taiwanese-American faced his biggest challenge and the Knicks took a 49-41 lead into the second half.

Kobe rose to the challenge himself. He got two points on a tough jumper. But the Lakers were still down by 6 after the third quarter. Lin kept the Lakers at bay. He scored another deuce over big man Pau Gasol.

And the 23-year-old delivered again off a feed from Jared Jeffries. Lin was on his way to a career high 38-point game - the Knicks led by 13.

Kobe fought back. He earned another difficult pair of points, but L-A still trailed by 9 as the game rushed through the fourth quarter. Lin answered with a great move and went reverse on the Lakers front line. That one put New York ahead by 10 - Jeremy Lin was unstoppable.

The Lakers made a run in the final minutes, but Lin stopped it with a crucial defensive play. He drew a charge on Matt Barnes with 40 seconds to go. The final score read Knicks 92, Lakers 85. New York improved to 12-15 on the season with a shocker over LA.
