Tyson Chandler elbows Jeremy Lin in the head, picks up flagrant foul (VIDEO)

Dec 18, 2012, 7:49 PM EST

Jeremy Lin got some revenge over the Knicks on Monday, the team where he played a season ago and vaulted into the national spotlight during his personal run of “Linsanity.”

New York wouldn’t pay him what he commanded on the open market, hence the “revenge” angle that really isn’t all that important. What was important was Lin’s performance, one of his better ones on the season that helped his team hand the East-leading Knicks their first home loss of the season.

But the return to play against his former teammates didn’t come without some bumps and bruises.

Tyson Chandler caught Lin with an elbow above the neck late in the second quarter, and received a flagrant foul from the officials for his action.

It was likely nothing personal from Chandler, though it did appear he followed through and made sure that once the contact was made, it was appropriately finished.

Just more fuel to add to the Lin-Knicks rivalry/storyline, which is thankfully over with this season unless the two teams should somehow meet again in the Finals.
