Behind Jeremy Lin, the Knicks have rebounded from a disappointing start to the season to climb back to .500, looking like Eastern Conference contenders in the process.

A side effect of the resurgence has been an incredible amount of energy injected into both Madison Square Garden and Knicks fans. Suddenly, the Knicks are again must-watch TV.

Last week, we hosted a live chat during the Knicks-Lakers game that attracted hundreds of readers, questions and comments. Next week, we'd like to do it again.

Instead of us choosing which game to host the live chat, though, we want readers to choose from three intriguing games:

On Monday, Feb. 20, the Knicks play the rival Nets at Madison Square Garden at 7:30 p.m. Lin first broke out against New Jersey on Feb. 4, scoring 25 points off the bench to lead the Knicks to a 99-92 win.

On Wednesday, Feb. 22, the Knicks take on Joe Johnson, Josh Smith and the Atlanta Hawks at Madison Square Garden at 7:30 p.m. Atlanta is a major player for home court advantage in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.

And on Thursday, Feb. 23, at 7 p.m., the Knicks head down to South Beach to take on LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and the Miami Heat. The Knicks lost to Miami on Jan. 27, but they were playing without Carmelo Anthony and, of course, Lin.

You can vote for which game you want to join us for a live chat below. Voting closes Sunday night.
