I think that's part of the reason that JR Smith and Jason Kidd did a lot of the ball handling in the second half, to get the ball out of Felton's hands.

They were running that play for Felton off a screen from Chandler which got him a ton of wide open 15-18 footers which gave him a lot of open shots.
