Raymond Felton began his second tour with the Knicks with a chip on his shoulder, understandably so. The eighth year point guard out of North Carolina wanted to prove that he was the man to have in a New York uniform over Jeremy Lin; who ended up going to the Rockets after the Knicks failed to match Houston’s offer sheet. Felton started off the season on fire, and productivity showed him to be one of the NBA’s top point guards early on. It has been a tale of two months for Felton, who had a November to remember and a December to forget this season.
The Knicks played their first fifteen games in November and posted an impressive 11-4 record in the month. Felton was hot for most of the first fifteen games as he shot 42% from the field and averaged 14.6 points per game and 6.7 assists per game. It was Felton, Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler carrying the load for New York, who went through all of November without losing a game at home.
