Donte DiVincenzo Hits Historic Knicks Landmark From Deep


In his first season with the New York Knicks, Donte DiVincenzo is already well on his way to becoming a legend in the franchise's history.

Donte DiVincenzo, a former Villanova Wildcat, is making his way into the annals of New York Knicks history using his hustle.

In the Knicks' 98-74 win over the Orlando Magic on Friday, DiVincenzo became the fourth player in franchise history to hit at least 200 three-pointers in a season with the last of three triples on 10 tries. 

DiVincenzo's historic nugget continues a magnificent debut with the Knicks, despite the fact that defence may have been the predominant factor in the game. 

DiVincenzo was the most notable player to be acquired over the offseason. He is currently on track to achieve career-highs in both scoring (14.3 points per game) and three-point percentage (40.6 marks).

With 19 regular season games left and averaging over three a game, DiVincenzo is on track to surpass Evan Fournier's 2021-22 franchise single-season record of 241.

Injured teammate Julius Randle (218 last season) ranks second, ahead of John Starks (217 in 1994-95). Only Luka Doncic and former teammate/all-time three-point king Stephen Curry have more NBA extra-point conversions than the DiVincenzo 200. 

Even if DiVincenzo misses Fournier's record by the end of the season, he'll have plenty of chances to dethrone the Detroit Piston: 

 the Knicks offered him a four-year, $46 million contract after his strong collaboration with Curry in Golden State, which seems like a bargain given his instant and cumulative ledger impact. 

This season began with DiVincenzo sitting on the bench; however, by the middle of December, he had taken over the primary shooting guard position for the squad, which had previously been held by Quentin Grimes. 

Since he was promoted, DiVincenzo has averaged 16.9 points while shooting just under 46 percent from the field. In addition, he has grabbed 3.7 rebounds and steals 1.4 times.

"He shot really well before the season started." His start was great, and I thought that was because of the work he did over the summer. Steve Popper of Newsday reported in February that Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau said.

He hit the ground running and hasn't stopped." "He's really grown during this stretch. This is probably his best basketball stretch, and he's doing it on both sides of the ball."
