Austin Rivers went off in Sunday’s win over the Kings, scoring a career-high 41 points (14-of-20 FGs, 7-of-8 FTs) with six rebounds, four assists, two steals and six 3-pointers in 33 minutes.
Rivers had the game of his NBA career Sunday night, as he and the Rockets took care of a Kings squad that was officially eliminated from playoff contention during the game (Portland’s win was the reason). Prior to this outburst, he had not scored 30 points in a game since joining the Rockets. No Russell Westbrook and Eric Gordon due to injuries has freed up shots for the likes of Rivers, and boy did he take advantage of the opportunity. Even when those two players return he’ll factor into the perimeter rotation, and Rivers will have increased fantasy value in these final seeding games. Aug 09 10:25 pm (EST)
