NEW YORK (CBS/AP) — Kobe Bryant didn’t know much about Jeremy Lin coming into Friday nights tilt against the New York Knicks, but he knows now.

Lin had the most astounding performance of his remarkable week, scoring a career-high 38 points and outdueling Bryant as the New York Knicks held off the Los Angeles Lakers 92-85.

Buried deep on the bench a little more than a week ago, Lin led the Knicks to their fourth straight win, tying their longest streak of the season.

His two free throws with 52 seconds left and some booming “MVP! MVP!” chants stopped the Lakers’ final rally and allowed the undrafted Harvard product to pass Carmelo Anthony for the highest-scoring game by a Knicks player this season.

“Nobody has ever got to the rim that many times against us without another body being there, but give him credit.” Mike Brown said after the game.

His 38 points is the most points by a Knicks player against the  Lakers since Stephon Marbury put up 45 back in 2005.
