Call your scalper or ticket broker now as a matter of Linsurance. Don't be a victim of Linaction. It would be completely Lincorrect to think you can walk up and buy a ticket for the Knicks game on Dec. 17. All Lindications say that game quickly will be Lincluded on the list of sold-out contests.

So, guess when Jeremy Lin is scheduled to return to Madison Square Garden to play the Knicks?

The NBA released its 2012-13 schedule last night and in addition to showing the Knicks opening up the Brooklyn Nets' brand new Barclays Center digs on Nov. 1 in a 7 p.m. nationally televised TNT game, — right, the Nets on national TV! — one of the highlights for the area will be Lin's first game with the Rockets against the Knicks on Dec. 17. Lin signed a 3-year, $25.1 million offer sheet with Houston and New York declined to match, breaking the hearts of pun-loving headline writers throughout New York.
