Barrett: Sympathy For Blazers G Raymond Felton

32
Mike Barrett of Blazers.com expresses some sympathy for the plight of Portland Trail Blazers point guard Raymond Felton after he struggled late in the fourth quarter of a Monday night loss to the Utah Jazz. ----------------------------------- Let me also say this morning that I feel badly for Raymond Felton. Holy cow, was he ever on an island last night in the final few crucial plays of that game. It's certainly no fun to re-live what happened, but the Trail Blazers led the game 97-94, with 2:30 to go, and had the ball. After Utah pulled to within one, Felton dribbled the ball off of his foot and out of bounds. One the next possession, trailing by one, Felton had the ball taken out of his hands by Jamaal Tinsley, and the Jazz scored again. That was it. It also should be pointed out that Felton, for as much as you don't want to believe this, didn't lose this game by himself. The Trail Blazers shot 5 for 16 in the fourth quarter, as a team. And, other than the horrible moments late, Felton played his tail off. He had just four points, but also had 8 assists and 9 rebounds, one night after nearly collecting a triple-double against Minnesota. ----------------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
