Felton produced 14 points (5-10 FG, 4-5 3Pt), two assists, one rebound, one steal and one block across 21 minutes during Oklahoma City's 115-102 loss to the Jazz in Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. The veteran point guard saw his highest allotment of minutes over the first three games of the series and parlayed the opportunity into his best effort during that span. Felton was particularly sharp from distance, and he's now upped his scoring totals in each contest against the Jazz. Despite the encouraging effort, it will be difficult to project Felton's playing time from game to game given how tight playoff rotations tend to be.
Felton pitched in 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt), one assist and two steals across 18 minutes in Sunday's 108-105 loss to the Trail Blazers. Felton posted his second consecutive double-digit scoring effort after not having accomplished the feat in his first 10 games of March. The 13-year veteran typically sees minutes in the teens, but his production remains hard to trust unless he sees a spot start due to injury in front of him.
Felton accounted for 13 points (5-7 FG, 3-3 3Pt), four assists and one steal in 13 minutes Monday in Oklahoma City's win over Orlando. Felton led the Thunder bench with 13 points and he even outscored Russell Westbrook to the surprise of, well, everybody. The bench as a whole produced 48 points on a night where they were sorely needed. Felton isn't a player that should be on your immediate radar, but he has proven his value to the Thunder and might be due for a larger role as the season winds down.
Felton finished with 12 points (3-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four assists, three steals, and one rebound in 23 minutes during Wednesday's 121-114 win over the Grizzlies. Felton filled up the stat sheet while playing more minutes than anyone besides the core four of Russell Westbrook, Paul George, Carmelo Anthony, and Steven Adams. Alex Abrines left the game with a hip contusion, but he'll have a week to rest and recover for next Thursday's matchup with the Kings. Regardless, Felton is firmly entrenched as the team's primary playmaker when Westbrook is on the bench (and a secondary playmaker when both of them are in the game).
Felton will return to the bench Tuesday against the Cavaliers with Russell Westbrook returning to the starting lineup, Cavaliers play-by-play announcer John Michael reports. Felton returns to his regular role off the bench after starting the past two contests while Westbrook nursed an ankle injury. The veteran played admirably in his two starts, recording 14 points, eight assists and six rebounds against the Grizzlies on Sunday. Back on the bench, expect his minutes to take a dip given his 17.2 minutes per game average this season.
