Tip-Off for 12/7/12 (featuring The Whispers): Raymond Felton steps up in Knicks blowout of the Heat; Broncos double up Raiders 26-13

(SI/CNN)

LeBron James’ near triple-double was an afterthought in the Knicks victory.

The New York Knicks stunned the Miami Heat with a 20-point victory in their November 2nd meeting in Gotham. At the time they were only without Amar’e Stoudemire who has yet to suit up this season.

Last night in Miami, the Knicks were without the red-hot Carmelo Anthony (lacerated finger), but guard Raymond Felton was more than ready to step up his scoring in the Knicks 112-92 victory over the Heat.

Knicks 112 – Heat 92 – Raymond Felton led the Knicks with 27 points and 7 assists. LeBron James just missed his second consecutive triple-double with 31 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists. The Knicks are up 2-0 in the season series against the Heat after dropping all three meetings last season.

Mavericks 97 – Suns 94 (no video) – O.J. Mayo continues his hot start in Dallas. Mayo led all players with 23 points and 5 assists. Elton Brand led the Mavs with 7 boards. Markeiff Morris was dominant in defeat for the Suns with 15 points and 17 boards.

Peyton Manning became only the second quarterback to record 5,000 completions in a career as the Denver Broncos defeated the Oakland Raiders 26-13. The Broncos have won eight straight and have improved their record to 5-0 in the AFC West.
