Raymond Felton fell an assist shy of a double-double in win over the Cavs as he had 12 points, nine assists, five rebounds, a steal, and two blocks.
Felton bounced back against a Cavs team that has had their troubles stopping opposing point guards this month (eighth worst defensive efficiency rating against opposing point guards in January). Felton scored just four points in the Knicks previous game against the Celtics.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Marc Krauss went 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Thursday in Toronto.
Krauss is hitting only .150 with a .350 slugging percentage after launching his first home run of the season. It was just his seventh game of the season, but there’s no doubt he’ll need to cut down on the strikeouts if he’s ever going to be able to showcase the decent pop he has. The left-handed hitter was called up from AAA to try and infuse some offense in Anaheim and was slugging .639 over his past 10 games. With Matt Joyce really struggling, expect Krauss to steal some of his at-bats over the next few weeks. Analysis: Kevin Luchansky
