The Jimmer takes over New York

Jimmer scored a career high 24 against the Knicks - Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

Playing in a game that some of the Knicks called Must Win....Sacramento came to play. The impressive part of the game is that the Kings were lead by our favorite long ball shooter from BYU...Jimmer!

The Players

Just looking at the box score won't help tell you the keys of the game. The Keys even went beyond his own stats of 24 point, 2 assists, 2 steals, and 1 turnover. He did all this in 27 minutes of playing time and shooting 9-14 and 6-8 from behind the arc. The only player that had more points was Carmelo Anthony who had 36 points, played 48 minutes and went 12-28 (5-11 from 3) and 7/7 at the line. He did add 11 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 fouls and 3 turnovers. For those that pay attention to the +/- because they must mean something if they are on ESPN! Well to those I give you Jimmer Fredette had a +14 while the Knicks reached +9 with their highest player Shumpert. Anthony ended with +6.

The Jimmer

For the local fans that were watching the game on NBATV, When Jimmer stepped on the court he looked like he was ready to play. BYU fans remember those eyes that could make someone back away and then he would shoot from anywhere. There was a little of that tonight. A couple time he took longer than necessary shots from the three point line, but we remember them as continuously going in. These were his normal shots and we just expect him to make them. It was nice to see some of his magic pay off in a big time arena, and a big time city. Getting this type of game a week before the trade deadline will at least catch some eyes. After another showing like today, teams will need to come out further on him, which will alter the shots but then the inside opens for the others.

A great night for a great fan favorite, hopefully it is the beginning of many more to come as we follow the path of THE JIMMER!
