Kay Felder, after missing the first game of the season due to a concussion and getting a DNP against the Raptors, made his NBA debut in the first quarter Saturday against the Magic. He proceeded to wrap up his first NBA stint by beating the buzzer on the first quarter game clock:

Felder’s first run went pretty well. Playing mostly against D.J. Augustin, he brought the ball up, but then often deferred to LeBron James. When LeBron exited, he was the one initiating the offense with Kevin Love and Iman Shumpert among those on the floor with him. He did come close to nabbing his first NBA assist with a pass to Love, but Love pumped faked and dribbled before shooting. He also did miss his first career shot, a three-pointer from the right wing.
Overall, Felder played 4:12, scored two points on 1-2 shooting and also had one assist. Not bad start at all.
