It was back on February 4th that Jeremy Lin stepped into the New York Knicks line-up in a big way, torching Deron Williams and the New Jersey Nets for 25 points, beginning his storybook rise to NBA stardom. Well, on Monday, Williams had his chance at a little revenge as he faced off against Lin for a second time, and this time - it would be the veteran guard who would own the head-to-head matchup.

The Knicks, welcoming back Carmelo Anthony to the lineup, Melo missing seven games with a strained right groin. He would be rusty, finishing with 11 points in his return.

New York looked very good early on, some nice passing leads to Melo finding Amare Stoudemire in the paint. The Knicks went 11-3 up with the 3-point play.

Later on, MarShon Brooks would convert the 4-point play. The Nets led by 8 at halftime. Then, in the 3rd, Williams took this one over. The 4-point play would give New Jersey an 11-point lead.

The All-Star guard would notch another, one of eight 3-pointers overall. And again, Williams would bury a third straight 3-pointer during the stretch. He had 18 in the third quarter alone. The Nets were up by 16 late in the period.

Midway through the final quarter, Kris Humphries would cut to the rack for a layup. New Jersey never looked back.
