NEW YORK, Feb. 19 (Xinhua) -- Jeremy Lin had 28 points and a career-high 14 assists to end the Dallas Mavericks six-game winning streak in New York Knicks' 104-97 victory on Sunday.

Steve Novak made four 3-pointers in the fourth quarter in Knicks pursuit of scores, who were 12 points behind in the third.

J.R. Smith scored 15 points in his Knicks debut and Novak had all of his 14 in the final period as New York won for the eighth time in nine games.

Lin shot 11 of 21 and contributed five steals, also committed seven turnovers in Knicks' only third victory over Mavericks in their last 20 matchups.

The Knicks reeled off 17 straight points in the first quarter with a three-pointer and a layup to give New York a 32-20 lead.

The Mavericks cut the deficit to three after a offense spurt and extended the momentum to the third quarter, building up a 12-point lead until the Knicks shaped up from Lin's assists to Novak's three-point attempts.

Novak was on fire in the fourth. He scored 14 of the Knicks' first 15 points in the period. Lin was the first Knick other than Novak to make a shot in the fourth.
