Rivers has not had many successful shooting nights this season and the trend continued in the loss Friday. The guard has only exceeded 50 percent from the floor twice this season in eight appearances. He also has not produced much outside of his shooting ability and is hard to consider a viable option off the bench for the time being.
Rivers posted 13 points (5-12 FG, 3-9 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 38 minutes Monday in the Knicks' 109-88 loss to the Hornets.
Rivers entered the starting five for the first time all season, filling in at shooting guard for the injured Reggie Bullock (hip). Though his line was respectable enough, Rivers' big minutes total is probably the more notable takeaway. If Bullock misses additional time, Rivers could make for an intriguing short-term pickup, given head coach Tom Thibodeau's historic tendencies to run tight rotations with his starters receiving ample playing time.

The Knicks were down by as much as 18 points in the first half and 13 at halftime, but Rivers helped power a comeback by scoring 14 straight points in the fourth quarter and draining four three-pointers in the final five minutes. His output has been up and down in the four games since he made his season debut, but Rivers gives New York a player capable of heating up in a heartbeat as part of the second unit.

Rivers made the most of his time on the court, helping carry the Knicks to victory with a pair of key buckets down the stretch in his second game since returning from a groin injury.
