Knicks, exponential growth of Donte DiVincenzo

Donte DiVincenzo is another player who has stepped up his game with Randle and Anunoby out. As The Athletic’s Fred Katz explains, the sixth-year guard is drawing particular defensive attention lately due to his long-range shooting, with DiVincenzo ranking second in the NBA over his last eight games in three-point attempts (13.3) and scores (5.3), behind only Stephen Curry in these two categories. He’s averaging 26.5 points, 4.3 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.5 steals on .459/.396/.750 shooting in 40.4 minutes over that span. “I think that’s his best basketball stretch,” Thibodeau said.
