Is it more of Jeremy Lin's magic?

Maybe.

But, it's more likely that both sides realized the financial impact of not having an agreement in place, and Governor Andrew Cuomo meeting with executives on both sides of the dispute that has reportedly led to an agreement between Time Warner Cable and MSG.

The New York Times is reporting that a deal has been reached, and Friday night's Knicks game will be available to Time Warner customers.

Since January 1, 2012, New York sports fans have been unable to watch the MSG Network due to a contract dispute . That meant many angry Time Warner customers who couldn't watch the first place Rangers or keep up on the Sabres, Islanders and Devils.

And, of course, the hottest thing going in the sports world, Jeremy Lin and the surging New York Knicks.
