After a lousy night in Chicago two weeks ago, when he took an unheard-of 30 shots, Raymond Felton again was flummoxed by Tom Thibodeau’s pick-and-roll defense in the Knicks’ 110-106 loss to the Bulls last night.
Felton had no assists by halftime and was 3-of-12 from the field after…
Raymond Felton’s final line on Friday night may look deceiving. He finished with 21 points on 9-for-21 shooting in the Knicks’ four-point loss.

Tyson Chandler and Joakim Noah were ejected for fighting in the fourth quarter of Chicago’s win over New York. The two centers were tangled up near the rim when Chandler appeared to swing his elbow at Noah twice before turning around. Chandler and Noah then exchanged words and Noah appeared to head butt Chandler.
What do the Knicks do when the calls aren’t going their way? The team’s best player and the team’s coach decided it would be better to get ejected and go back to the locker room, rather than stick around and try to fight.
Rasheed Wallace’s mysterious “sore footâ? injury is really a stress fracture, according to a Knicks source. Officially, the team is listing Wallace’s status as day-to-day, but privately it is optimistic that the injury won’t sideline the veteran forward for an extended period of time.
The core of the Knicks this season â??
