Raymond Felton

  1. Will slap across face from Knicks finally wake Heat up?

    Dec 7, 2012, 11:55 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    The Knicks are legit, give them their due. In Miami Thursday night, even without Carmelo Anthony, they were the aggressors. Raymond Felton attacked and he Heat tried to react. It’s early, but New York is positioning itself to be the threat to Miami in the East. But let’s be honest — Miami has looked awful.…

  2. Video: Allen to Wade to LeBron for the double alley-oop

    Dec 7, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade tries to pass against New York Knicks Tyson Chandler and J.R. Smith in the first half of their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

    The Miami Heat had the highlight of the night — Ray Allen to Dwyane Wade to LeBron James for the double alley-oop. It was one of their few highlights as the Heat didn’t play much defense, Raymond Felton carved them up like a Christmas turkey and the Knicks stomped on the Heat Thursday night. Still,…

  3. No Carmelo, no problem. Knicks expose napping Heat defense in rout

    Dec 7, 2012, 12:28 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Chandler celebrates a basket by his team against Miami Heat during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    With New York, there is energy. There are guys willing to step up with Carmelo Anthony out. There is defense in the paint. There are guys making the extra pass and raining down threes. In Miami I expect Jimmy Carter to come out and give a speech about malaise. Especially if he is talking about…

  4. Tyson Chandler and the acceptance of limitations

    Dec 6, 2012, 5:44 PM EDT

    New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler reacts after drawing a foul and scoring a basket against the Dallas Mavericks during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler is talented, but he’s also ridiculously limited in terms of what he can actually do on a basketball court. Chandler is a true 7-footer with a strong build, but he possesses no post game whatsoever. There are no jump hooks, no drop steps, no up-and-under moves — nothing. In…

  5. J.R. Smith hits the step-back jumper at the buzzer to help Knicks beat Bobcats (VIDEO)

    Dec 5, 2012, 10:23 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Smith is surrounded by team mates after making a last second shot to beat Charlotte Bobcats in their NBA basketball game in Charlotte

    The last few possessions of this game were pretty crazy, so it’s only fitting that things ended on a shot like this. The Knicks beat the Bobcats on Wednesday in a game that was closer than expected, likely due to the fact that it was a look-ahead contest for them with a nationally televised game…

  6. Felton to play through bruised thumb; Kidd may return, too

    Dec 4, 2012, 3:03 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v New York Knicks

    It’s not his shooting hand, but still it is a bone bruise in his hand near his thumb. I’ve never dribbled a ball with a bone bruise in my hand — or had a defensive player hit my hand in that situation while trying to swipe the ball — but I imagine it’s not a…

  7. NBA Power Rankings: Heat, Thunder on top, it feels like 2011

    Dec 3, 2012, 3:11 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James celebrates win over Atlanta Hawks with Bosh and Allen during their NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    It’s early in the season, very early, but there are moments it feels line the NBA finals come June could be a rematch of last year — Miami vs. Oklahoma City. And that really shouldn’t be a surprise. Right now those two teams are on top of the PBT power rankings. 1. Heat (12-3, last…

  8. Knicks’ Felton has bone bruise on non-shooting hand

    Dec 3, 2012, 10:08 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v New York Knicks

    Well, it could have been worse. It’s not broken. Raymond Felton suffered the hand injury in the fourth quarter against the Suns Sunday. The Knicks say an MRI revealed it to be a bone bruise, reports the New York Daily News. While it’s not his shooting hand, the severity of the injury would impact his…

  9. Suns’ turnovers, Knicks’ offensive rebounds earn New York win

    Dec 2, 2012, 3:04 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v New York Knicks

    In the seminal NBA advanced stats book “Basketball on Paper,” Dean Oliver identifies his four factors in winning a basketball game. At the top of the list is the most obvious thing — shooting. It represents 40 percent of the outcome, Oliver said. The Suns shot better than the Knicks in a Sunday matinee at…

  10. Knicks show their flaws, Nets get big win for franchise

    Nov 26, 2012, 11:49 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Anthony controls a rebound in front of Brooklyn Nets' Wallace during their NBA basketball game in New York

    Games in November don’t have a playoff atmosphere… usually. But every once in a while there is an exception. And this was it — Brooklyn’s first home game against the Knicks may have been in November but New York fans were treating this like a hockey playoff game. There was constant chanting like a Brazilian…

  11. Raymond Felton tired of Jeremy Lin comparisons

    Nov 23, 2012, 1:42 PM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    The Knicks play the Rockets Friday night, and the matchup will mark the first time that Jeremy Lin will face his former team after making a name for himself in New York during the incredible but brief “Linsanity” run last season. When the Knicks didn’t match Houston’s free agent offer to Lin, and ended up…

  12. Five early season NBA trends to be thankful for

    Nov 22, 2012, 4:29 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, Shane Battier

    We are 10 games or so into the NBA season and one thing is clear — this is fun. Not everything is fitting neatly into the preseason prediction boxes and that is the best part of being a sports fan. We at PBT are thankful for a lot of things. All of you who read…

  13. Woodson not worried at all that ‘Melo, Amare can coexist

    Nov 21, 2012, 2:18 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony

    The Knicks are 8-1 to start the season and it isn’t a fluke — this is a team that plays legitimately good defense and with Carmelo Anthony at the four (and Raymond Felton playing smartly at the point). But there remains a big question looming about this team — what happens when Amare Stoudemire returns?…

  14. Jeremy Lin thinks he will still be an All-Star. Someday.

    Nov 21, 2012, 8:42 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    Based on his play so far this season, Jeremy Lin doesn’t deserve to be an All-Star. He’s been below replacement level. Frankly, he’s looked a young point guard learning how to play in the league and finding his game. He’ll improve, but that’s a process. This year, if the fans don’t vote in Chris Paul…

  15. Raymond Felton worked out this summer… for the first time

    Nov 19, 2012, 10:16 AM EDT

    Raymond Felton

    I don’t think we’d use the words “Raymond Felton” and “chiseled” in the same sentence. But we can safely say that this year with the Knicks he is in considerably better shape than following the lockout last year in Portland. He admitted he wasn’t in shape for that season, and it showed on the court.…

  16. The Knicks are legit. If they can keep this up is another question.

    Nov 16, 2012, 1:25 PM EDT

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith celebrates as he faces the crowd after making a shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the third quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    The Knicks are 6-0, the last undefeated team in the NBA — and it’s not a fluke. They are defending better than anyone in the league, giving up just 93.6 points per 100 possessions, via Hoopdata. (Anyone who says they just started defending this year wasn’t watching last year.) Their offense with Carmelo Anthony at…

  17. Three Stars of the Night: Two Knicks’ guards… and LeBron.

    Nov 16, 2012, 2:48 AM EDT

    Jason Kidd, Raymond Felton

    We should just name one of these stars after LeBron at this point. Aside that, the story of the night was the Knicks dramatic comeback win, so the two guards that led that charge are getting stars tonight. Third Star: Jason Kidd (14 points, 4-of-6 from three) His line isn’t that impressive, but it’s really…

  18. New York 104, San Antonio 100: Yes, the Knicks are for real.

    Nov 16, 2012, 12:09 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    You know how announcers talk about Shane Battier? How they say he “does things that don’t show up in the boxscore” and how his value can’t really be defined by common statistics? Well, no one ever really says those things about Carmelo Anthony. Ever. And that’s fair. Anthony’s entire career has been defined by the…

  19. Jamal Crawford says he ‘deserved to get booed’ by Blazers fans

    Nov 9, 2012, 12:17 PM EDT

    jamal-crawford-blazers-clippers

    Saying last season was a disappointment in Portland is like calling the Titanic a minor boating accident. There isn’t enough hyperbole there to do it justice. The Blazers were a talented team a season ago, but dealt with all kinds of locker room trouble that resulted in a complete dismantling of the club that began…

  20. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs, Knicks remain undefeated

    Nov 6, 2012, 4:42 AM EDT

    Rasheed Wallace, Tyson Chandler

    Our nightly recap of every game around the NBA. We catch you up on what you missed while you were finding out where Superman’s home planet Krypton actually was…. Spurs 101, Pacers 79: Don’t look now, but the Spurs are defending again this year. Which is how they crushed the Pacers. We broke it down.…

  21. Knicks continue impressive start by taking care of Sixers

    Nov 4, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Thaddeus Young

    A tip-off time of 12 noon in the NBA can often be trouble for both teams. It’s a quirk in the schedule for a league whose players are used to gearing up to perform at their peak sometime after 7:30 p.m., so the broken routine can result in some rough basketball during those early afternoon…

  22. Fun matchups for Friday night: LeBron vs. ‘Melo at power forward

    Nov 1, 2012, 1:58 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James

    We’ve pretty much worn out the discussion of the Miami Heat going small with LeBron James at the four. The much more interesting discussion of late has been injuries forcing Mike Woodson to take the Knicks in a direction they were reluctant to go — small with Carmelo Anthony at the four. Now, what do…

  23. A guide for which teams to watch

    Oct 30, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Steve Nash, Dwight Howard, Metta World Peace, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol

    Our ideas of fun may be completely different. Personally, I like to pretend I’m playing Supermarket Sweep in the grocery store, but you may like going out on “dates” or “talking to actual people.” With that said, I can’t in good faith tell you which teams will be fun this year. That’s a decision for…

  24. Deron Williams says Knicks better with Felton than Lin

    Oct 29, 2012, 12:24 PM EDT

    Nets Williams drives to the basket past Knicks Lin during their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Jeremy Lin is gone from New York, which led to a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth among some Knicks fans. He was their savior midseason, the guy who helped turn the team’s season around, a guy the fans related to and loved and now he is in Houston. Deron Williams thinks the Knicks…

  25. Tyson Chandler isn’t buying ‘Melo scoring less this season

    Oct 26, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    Alan Anderson, Carmelo Anthony,

    Carmelo Anthony is not just going to be a scorer anymore. He’s changed. It’s about team and trust and distributing the rock. That’s what he’s saying, anyway. “I’m done trying to score 35, 40 points to win the basketball game. I don’t want that role anymore” You buying that? Tyson Chandler isn’t. From the Wall…
