The New York Knicks have won five of their first eight games to begin the 2020-21 regular season, with their latest victory thanks in large part to Austin Rivers.

New York came back to take down the Utah Jazz in the Big Apple on Wednesday evening. Rivers, for his part, prompted the Knicks' late effort after scoring an impressive 14 consecutive points against the Jazz.

While Rivers did most of his late game work from behind the arc, the Knicks newcomer was also effective inside the 3-point line. Perhaps his most impressive play on Wednesday evening, Rivers beat the shot clock while storming right to the hoop as the seconds ticked off.

While Austin Rivers should be credited for his late-game explosion that propelled the Knicks to victory, it is worth noting that New York actually showed a full team effort in the contest. The team made 68 points in the second half alone after trailing by 12 in the first half.

Rivers finished with 23 points, while Julius Randle had a game-high 30 points. Elfrid Payton had 22, and the returning Reggie Bullock finished with 12 points.

As the Knicks come away from the mid-week affair with the W, they will now begin to look toward another home game against the Oklahoma City Thunder scheduled for Friday evening.
