Kevin Seraphin played in a season-high 14 minutes for the Knicks versus the New Orleans Pelicans last night, as he contributed 12 points and 3 rebounds off the bench, which was the second most off New York’s bench.

Seraphin’s season-high in minutes was somewhat surprising last night, considering the 25-year-old backup hasn’t played in some games and if he did play, he wasn’t playing very much. That’s why Seraphin reportedly talked to Knicks head coach Derek Fisher about his minute distribution.

Per the New York Post:

Seraphin, signed as a free agent for the $2.8 million room exception, was terrific in the fourth as the Knicks — and Anthony — continued to pound the ball into the post for the center who once played in the French league. Seraphin has been bothered by sore knees in his first year in New York and had seemed to lose his rotation spot to Lou Amundson.

“I went to his office and asked him, ‘What do you expect from me?’ ‘What I should do more and better to be on the court?’ ’’ Seraphin said. “ He expects more from the defensive part. He told me the offensive part, don’t worry about this part, get more rebounds and make some stops.’’

Seraphin is averaging 3.1 points and 1.4 rebounds per game so far this year.
