One thing’s become crystal clear during the Knicks’ current three-game skid: This team misses Raymond Felton. Badly.
New York’s ball movement was non-existent at times in Friday night’s 108-101 loss to the Bulls, just as it was in losses to Indiana and Boston.
Felton would have made a difference. Just ask Carmelo Anthony.
“We miss Raymond,” Anthony said after scoring too many of his game-high 39 points in isolation Friday. “We miss him pushing the tempo of the game. There’s a lot of things that when he was playing we were getting [and] we’re not getting right now. When we have different guys in the lineup, the games change.”
No one is saying that (Jason) Kidd and (Pablo) Prigioni are the reason New York is 3-5 since Felton went down, but the Knicks were quick to admit they’ve missed Felton’s presence at the point.
