Barea out due to injury, though, Felton was given a chance to shine. He did exactly that. (SB Nation)

Raymond Felton’s double-double fuels Mavericks offense in playoffs win

Raymond Felton was experiencing an unfamiliar feeling late in Monday’s Game 2 win: sickness. With less than 10 seconds left and his team ahead by one point, 85-84, both the guard’s attempts bounced off the rim, culminating in a wild OKC fast break heading the other way. (Dallas Mavericks)
