Lin helped fill in the gaps for the Knicks as they played without stars Amare Stoudemire and Camelo Anthony.
Stoudemire was absent following the death of his brother in a Florida car accident, while Anthony left the game with a strained right groin in the first quarter and did not return.
The Jazz were led by Al Jefferson's 22 points.
