It was New York's seventh straight victory, a streak that has coincided with Lin's emergence as a star.
The Knicks' point guard, with his team running away from the Kings, played just 27 minutes and scored 10 points -- his smallest total since he burst upon the NBA scene this month.
After a loss to Boston Feb. 3, the Knicks had fallen seven games below .500. Lin scored 25 points off the bench in New York's next game against New Jersey and has started ever since while the Knicks have climbed back to break-even.
Tyreke Evans had 19 points to lead Sacramento, which has dropped three in a row. The Kings, who have won just three times on the road this season, have four games left on a six-game road trip.
