NEW YORK, Feb. 29 (UPI) -- Jeremy Lin bounced back from a dismal showing to score 19 points and hand out 13 assists Wednesday, launching New York to a 120-103 decision over Cleveland.

In his previous outing against Miami, Lin made only 1-of-11 shots from the floor and committed eight turnovers. He turned the ball over just once against the Cavaliers in pushing the Knicks to their 10th win in 13 games.

New York dominated the second half after trailing by 12 at the break.

Carmelo Anthony scored 22 points for the Knicks and Steve Novak contributed 17 while hitting five 3-pointers.

Cleveland, which lost its third straight, got 23 points and 10 rebounds from Antawn Jamison.

New York hit half its field goal attempts, but was only 28-of-42 from the foul line.
