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.
Felton went for 14 points (3-12 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 6-6 FT), eight assists and six rebounds across 34 minutes in Sunday's 110-92 win over the Grizzlies. The veteran drew another start for Russell Westbrook (ankle) and produced a significantly better line than in last Thursday's defeat at the hands of the Lakers. Felton's shot was actually considerably off, but he significantly propped up his final line with a perfect showing from the charity stripe and strong efforts on the boards and as a facilitator. The productive night was naturally a welcome sight, but Felton will slide right back into a role that only affords him minutes in the teens as soon as Westbrook returns.
Felton posted seven points (3-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists and two steals across 31 minutes in Thursday's 106-81 loss to the Lakers. The veteran drew the start at point guard in place of Russell Westbrook (ankle), and modest as his scoring total was, it was the third highest on the starting five for the night. Felton's points were also the most he'd generated since Jan. 23, but he remains in a multi-game shooting slump. Factoring in Thursday's contest, Felton has posted no better than a 37.5 percent success rate in seven straight games. He'll be back to a backup role that typically affords him minutes in the mid-teens as soon as Westbrook makes his return, which could come as soon as Sunday against the Grizzlies.
