Linsanity was placed on hold last night as the New York Knicks were demolished in a 102-88 defeat to Miami Heat last night.

^^Click More Pictures to launch gallery^^

It was the Heat's eighth straight win, with MVP candidate LeBron James scoring 20 points, Chris Bosh 25 and Dwyane Wade 22 in an especially productive night for Miami's 'Big Three'.

Jeremy Lin managed just eight points and turned the ball over eight times, saying after the game: "They chased me and picked me up early and made me work for everything. That’s what they do, that’s why they’re great. I have to look at film and get better because of this, continue to build off what I’ve tried to do already."
