The Lin-ning streak is over. And Jeremy Lin’s sloppiness was one of the problems for the Knicks. Lin committed nine turnovers, tied for the most in the NBA this season, and New York’s seven-game winning streak was stopped 89-85 by the New Orleans Hornets on Friday night. Lin scored 26 points, but his turnovers nearly doubled his five assists and the Knicks lost for the first time since Linsanity began, falling back below .500 at 15-16 heading into a matchup with the defending NBA champion Dallas Mavericks on Sunday.
