Last nights game was a reminder of why I'm not a big Felton fan.
He's an 8 year veteran, yet he was out there playing insecure, like a 16 year old in HS desperately trying to impress a girl, to the point where he hurt the team. He immediately came out and took 3 long jumpers.
Meanwhile, Lin, who's only started about 50 games, let the game come to him. He attacked the basket and got to the rim at will. Lin might make mistakes, but he plays the game the right way, and he attacks, he's not out there settling for 20 foot jumpers all day. That's why Lin scored 22 on just 15 shots, while it took Felton 18 shots to score just 14. Lin wasn't worried about trying to prove he was better than Felton, he played his game and let the game come to him. Lin 2, Felton 0.
Guys like Kidd, & Nash, they are and were so good because they play the right way, they play smart. Felton has his moments, but I've just never really been confident in him making the right play, I have more confidence in Lin to make the right play.
