Kuzminskas contributed 14 points (5-9 FG, 4-5 3Pt), two rebounds, and one assist in 20 minutes during the Knicks' 106-104 win against the Timberwolves on Wednesday.

Only eight days after scoring in double figures for the first time, Kuzminskas turned in a new career high of 14 points (and four made threes) while playing 20 minutes or more for the third time in the last five games. Having averaged nine minutes per contest through his first 10 appearances, it seems as though the rookie is starting to develop coach Jeff Hornacek's trust. Kuzminskas is still averaging only 16.2 minutes per night over this recent five-game stretch, but it's at least a step towards relevance in deeper leagues.
