The buzz surrounding Linsanity continues, as does the rating bonanza for MSG Network.

Last night’s Knicks vs. Cavs game had a 6.08 Household rating.

For the first time since the 1988-89 season, Knicks telecasts have delivered a 6 Household rating or higher in four straight games.

In the 10 games on MSG since Jeremy Lin became a starter on February 6th, Knicks games are averaging a 5.00 Household, up 176 percent compared to the first 20 games.

Through 30 games this season on MSG, Knicks telecasts are averaging a 2.87 HH, up 95 percent over last season at this time.
