The New York Knicks defeated the San Antonio Spurs on Monday night, and then on Wednesday night they blew out the Dallas Mavericks.
They are now 21-21 in 42 games on the season, and are the 11th seed in the Eastern Conference.
In the first game, RJ Barrett had 31 points, and in the last game the 21-year-old had 32 points.
According to Knicks PR (see tweet below), Barrett is the youngest player in the history of the franchise to score 30+ points in back-to-back games.
Kristaps Porzingis, who started out his career on the Knicks, previously held the record before Barrett.
The Knicks went 41-31 last season and started out this season 5-1, so their .500 start to the season has been somewhat of a disappointment.
However, they are 7-3 in their last ten games.
