IRL, Finger/Wrist locks are doable from the opposite flank, but you won't be at the right angle to properly leverage the elbow or shoulder.

If I ended up on the knife-wielder's left flank, I'd probably be trying for a foot trap of some sort or maybe a strike to the side of the knee. I for sure would be trying to continue my movement and not just hang around in range of the knife that is inevitably going to be coming for me.
