Jeremy Lin, Knicks Guard, Takes Linsanity To Minnesota To Battle Ricky Rubio, Timberwolves (VIDEO)

Will tonight be the night? Knicks fans -- and increasingly the fans of rival teams -- are asking themselves if our Jeremy Linderella will turn into a pumpkin any time soon.

Well, 15 points on 7 of 12 shooting in the first half against the Minnesota Timberwolves suggests that the clock will not strike midnight on the Knicks' breakout star during his brief stopover in Prince's hometown. New York's winning streak seems in jeopardy at the intermission, though, as Kevin Love popped off for 20 and 11 in the first half. Of course, the battle that fans are tuning in to see is between the two point guards.

Jeremy Lin vs. Ricky Rubio.

Coming off his captivating 38 points in the Knicks' nationally televised win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night, Lin picked right up where he left off. The unheralded 23-year-old point guard out of Harvard scored the last of his first-half points on an impressive, contorting drive to the rack.
