After dropping a game-high 36 points on 11-of-21 shooting from the field against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday, Steph Curry tuned in for more hoops on his day off.

There were only three games on the NBA’s slate for Tuesday, highlighted by a matchup between the streaking Utah Jazz and upstart New York Knicks. The Knicks were able to jump out a commanding 13 point lead in the first half behind the performance of Austin Rivers off the bench.

The veteran guard recorded 25 points on 10-of-10 shooting from the field in 12 minutes. The Duke product was perfect from beyond the arc, knocking down five triples on five attempts. Rivers scored 18 points in the second quarter alone.

Despite the Knicks’ first-half advantage, the Jazz stormed back in the second half to steal the game, 108-94. Five different members of the Jazz scored in double-figures, with Royce O’Neale leading the way with 20 points on 7-of-12 shooting from the field.

After going scoreless in the final 24 minutes, Rivers ended the contest with a game-high 25 points on 10-of-14 shooting with three rebounds and an assist in 27 minutes.
