|The Knicks and Nets will battle for the final time (in the regular season) next Monday at MSG.|
"The Knicks' slump more or less coincides with Raymond Felton's absence from the lineup with a broken right pinky finger; they're 4-6 without Felton, who not coincidentally has the team's third-best net plus-minus after stars Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler.
"While New York's defensive woes predate Felton's injury, the team scores 6.5 more points per 100 possessions with its lead playmaker on the floor, per NBA.com. That's enough to turn some recent L's into high-scoring W's when Felton gets back in the lineup, possibly as soon as the end of the month."
