Signed by the Knicks for $15.8 million over two years after less than a week after they picked up Stoudemire, Raymond Felton has thrived as a playmaker and second scorer. Much-maligned during his five up-and-down seasons with the Bobcats, he has formed a dynamic partnership with Stoudemire: Felton, whose average of 8.9 assists was sixth in the NBA through Sunday, has set Stoudemire up for nearly a third of his buckets. And like Stoudemire, Felton is racking up points at a career-high rate—17.3 per game at week's end—putting the duo near the top of the league in average combined points per team's game.
