Good things continue to happen for Jeremy Lin and the New York Knicks.

In case you missed Wednesday night's NBA scores, the Knicks beat the Sacramento Kings, 100-85, thanks in part to 13 assists by Lin. The Knicks have now seven games in a row, dating back to Lin's entrance into the lineup on Feb. 5.

Thursday, reports started surfacing that Lin has been invited to the Slam Dunk Contest during the NBA's All-Star weekend (Feb. 24-26) in Orlando. Lin has been asked to 'assist' several of the participants, much like Baron Davis's role for 2011 Slam Dunk champion Blake Griffin.

You might remember that Davis lobbed a basketball coming out of an automobile that Griffin soared over to capture the Slam Dunk title.
