Quick: McMillan To Consider Starting Crawford Over Felton

323
Jason Quick of The Oregonian reports from Dallas that Portland Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillan acknowledged that he will consider moving reserve guard Jamal Crawford into the starting lineup in place of starting point guard Raymond Felton. ----------------------------- "It's time the play becomes better," McMillan said Saturday. So will he consider taking Felton out of the starting lineup in favor of Crawford? "I have to look at it," McMillan said. ----------------------------- McMillan brushed off similar questions following Portland's home loss to the Houston Rockets on Wednesday. Felton shot 4-for-17 in a Saturday loss to the Dallas Mavericks. Whether Felton remains as starter or not, one thing has not changed since this look at his terrible start back in January: he must play less. There is only one player in the entire NBA who plays more minutes than Felton does while producing a lower PER: Toronto Raptors wing DeMar DeRozan. Sunday update: After Saturday's nightmare, Felton dropped below DeRozan, meaning there are now zero players in the NBA playing as many or more minutes while producing a lower PER. He's back down to No. 53 among point guards. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
