Linsanity hasn’t changed one thing: Garden fans still hate former Knicks president Isiah Thomas.

Jeremy Lin, who wants to be a minister when this is all over, raised the Knicks to Seventh Heaven and the .500 mark Wednesday night.

This was the perfect bridge of a game, connecting not only the Melo-free Knicks with the Melo-ful Knicks but also Jeremy Lin as rock-star phenomenon with Jeremy Lin, professional point guard.

NEW YORK — With Jeremy Lin playing remarkably well and the Knicks on their best winning streak of the season, you won’t find any visible, negative vibes resonating from the team.
But one big question mark lurks from the sidelines — literally — where Carmelo Anthony, who’s missed the past five games with a strained right groin, has been sitting.

At the rate things are going at the Garden, Steve Nash will be texting Jeremy Lin to get tips on playing the point. Lin made it look that easy when the Knicks encountered a real, live pushover Wednesday.
