1. Raymond Felton Scores 21


After a 10-for-19, 21-point performance in Game 5, Raymond Felton is now shooting 48% for this series. This is especially impressive given that he's scoring most his points in pick and roll situations. During the regular season, Boston ranked third in the league in points per possession allowed to opposing pick-and-roll ballhandlers. They're elite defensively in defending the pick-and-roll.

The Knick point guard was great in attacking Boston's defense, scoring 9 of his 10 made baskets at the rim. Given the construct of the Knick offense (usually three shooters on the floor with Felton and a big), they need Felton to be a guy who can get into the paint and either score at the rim or collapse the defense and kick out to open shooters. He's been doing a good job of that in this series and that was the case again tonight.
