Breaking Barriers: Donte DiVincenzo’s Record-Setting 3-Pointer Secures Knicks’ Playoff Hopes

Donte DiVincenzo lights up Pistons, shatters Knicks record with 11 3-pointers

Donte DiVincenzo has had a standout career as a basketball player, with notable success in March and now breaking the New York Knicks’ all-time record for a single game. Recently, he scored 40 points in a game against the Detroit Pistons and hit 11 3-pointers, surpassing the Knicks’ previous record. This impressive performance took place at Madison Square Garden in front of an enthusiastic crowd.

As the game progressed, DiVincenzo was tied with J.R. Smith and Evan Fournier for the most 3-pointers made in a game for the Knicks. However, with just over three minutes remaining, he made another 3-pointer to claim the record for himself. The crowd erupted into cheers and applause, and he was subbed out shortly after for a curtain call by head coach Tom Thibodeau.

The Knicks emerged victorious over the Pistons with a final score of 124-99, with DiVincenzo being one of five players to score in double figures for New York. Despite their struggles this season, including tying the league’s longest losing streak, DiVincenzo’s impressive performance added to their woes. He finished the game shooting 14 of 23 from the field, 11 of 20 from beyond the arc, and contributed in other areas of the game with five rebounds, two assists, and two steals.

With this record-breaking performance, Donte DiVincenzo solidified his place in the Knicks’ record book and helped his team in their quest for a playoff spot in the competitive Eastern Conference. The win improved the Knicks’ record to 43-28 while Pistons fell to a league-worst 12-60.
