Knicks, eighth win in a row

The Knicks’ run continues, achieving their eighth success in a row led by the Villanova boys, with the Brunson (29)-DiVincenzo (33)-Hart trio (triple double with 10 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists) giving points and show. Achiuwa also did well with 18 points as vice-Randle (absent, as was Anunoby), while Sexton was the best for the Jazz with 22 points.

DiVincenzo’s evening is one to remember. After warming up his engines against Charlotte (28 points), he gives 33 to the Jazz thanks to his new career high for triples made, 9 (out of 15 attempted). And his stat line of 33 points, 9 triples, 5 assists, 4 rebounds and 4 steals finds only one other precedent in the history of the league.
