NEW YORK: GUARDS: RAYMOND FELTON will start at the point, which seems like a colossal mistake. He had his career year in New York under Mike D'Antoni, but the Knicks have gone away from the pick-and-roll system he thrived in . . . Don't be surprised if JASON KIDD is overtaking Felton in minutes played by midseason. He's limited athletically but still a heady passer . . . Resident chucker J.R. SMITH should see big minutes early before IMAN SHUMPERT steps in as the defense half of their shooting guard platoon as soon as his knee is recovered mid-season . . . RONNIE BREWER will be Smith's defensive complement while Shumpert is out . . . PABLO PRIGIONI is a game manager who provides insurance at the point. FORWARDS: This is once again CARMELO ANTHONY's team, as the Knicks will run their offense through him. It's going to be a lot of iso, and a lot of scoring opportunities for Melo . . . AMAR'E STOUDEMIRE doesn't fit nearly as well in this system as he did in former coach Mike D'Antoni's. He ended up forcing a lot of shots a year ago, and his durability is a major question mark . . . STEVE NOVAK will continue to come off the bench strictly as a three-point shooter. He's one of the best long-range bombers in the NBA, but he's too much of a defensive liability to play more than 20 minutes per night . . . Swingman JAMES WHITE will also get some minutes at the two or three spots with his 6-foot-7 frame. . . CHRIS COPELAND had some solid years overseas, but will be lucky to break into this rotation . . . KURT THOMAS is in player/coach mode. CENTERS: TYSON CHANDLER is indispensible on the defensive end as long as sieves Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire are also in the frontcourt . . . MARCUS CAMBY can't defendin space like Chandler can, but his ability to rebound and protect the rim will come in handy as the second unit is no better defensively than the starters . . . RASHEED WALLACE came out of retirement, but has a long way to go, especially with his lack of conditioning, before he contributes much at age 38.
INDIANA: GUARDS: The Pacers went 7-2 during the regular season and won a playoff series with GEORGE HILL in the starting five. He averaged 13.9 PPG and 5.3 APG in those regular season starts . . . PAUL GEORGE is a defensive stopper who is making strides on the offensive end. If he can find the touches, his scoring average will rise . . . D.J. AUGUSTIN has a skill set similar to Hill's. Maybe he'll push him for minutes later in the year, but more likely he'll shoot corner threes off the bench . . . GERALD GREEN is another athlete for their second unit . . . LANCE STEPHENSON has a chance for a bigger role, but he's been atrocious to this point of his career. FORWARDS: DANNY GRANGER's touches dropped last season, but his shot selection improved as last year went on. He'll continue to be a borderline All-Star . . . DAVID WEST's knee should be fully recovered from his torn ACL in late 2010-11. He was their best player in the postseason and should be a star this season with his ability to knock down shots . . . TYLER HANSBROUGH looks like he's settling in as a career second unit player. His lack of athleticism really limits his upside . . . JEFF PENDERGRAPH may or may not hold on to a roster spot in a 12th-man role. CENTERS: They're paying ROY HIBBERT like a franchise player, and he has the ability to control both ends of the court. The question is whether they'll now play him 30-plus minutes, or continue to use him as more of a part-time player . . . IAN MAHINMI should step in as a decent backup center . . . Rookie MILES PLUMLEE was a part-time player at Duke and is highly unlikely to contribute in his first season.

*Knicks-Pacers Preview* =======================


New York (32-18) at Indiana (32-21), 7:00 p.m. EDT

With the NBA's oldest roster and the team experiencing a brief slump, the New York Knicks might have needed the All-Star break rest more than any other team.

For the Indiana Pacers, the break meant they grew even closer to the return of Danny Granger. Though he likely won't make his season debut Wednesday night when New York comes to town, the Pacers' offense has made strides without him as Paul George continues to blossom.

The teams split two meetings earlier this season with each squad winning on its home floor. Carmelo Anthony missed the Knicks' loss due to a suspension and scored a game-high 26 in their win.

New York (32-18) comes out of the break 1 1/2 games ahead of Indiana for second in the Eastern Conference despite dropping three of its last four games.

"I think we might have been thinking about the break beforehand," said Amare Stoudemire, who totaled 30 points over the last three games after averaging 20.0 in the previous three. "... I think now we've had a chance to refocus and hopefully we can get it going."

Anthony is coming off a strong performance in the All-Star game with 26 points on 8-of-14 shooting despite originally being uncertain to play after bruising his right arm in a 92-88 loss to Toronto last Wednesday. He had 12 points on 5-of-24 shooting in that game after averaging 36.3 in the previous three.

Jason Kidd, who turns 40 next month, said the team needs to do a better job of sharing the basketball instead of leaning so heavily on Anthony for offensive production.

New York is among the league's worst in assists at 19.7 per game, including an average of 14.0 in the last four. Anthony's 22.1 field-goal attempts per game are the most in the NBA.

"Melo knows that, too," coach Mike Woodson said. "Melo's not here to do but one thing, and that's to help us win basketball games. I think he's done a hell of a job up to this point by his play and guys around him playing at a high level and getting better as we go along."

The Pacers (32-21), winners of 16 of 18 at home, went into the break leading the league in both field-goal defense (41.7 percent) and opponents' scoring average (89.9).

While averaging only 92.8 points on the season with Granger sidelined, Indiana's offense has found a better rhythm, scoring 98 or more in eight of the last 10 while averaging 22.2 assists.

Granger, the team's top scorer each of the past five seasons, resumed practice just before the break. He's still officially listed as day-to-day and likely won't return until Friday's game against Detroit.

"He looks good," George told the team's official website. "His mobility is great. There's going to be some time before he trusts how hard he can push, but he looks great out there how he's moving."

George followed his first career triple-double in last Wednesday's 101-77 win over Charlotte with a solid first-time All-Star performance Sunday. He recorded 17 points, four assists, three rebounds and two steals in just 20 minutes.

George, whose career average is 12.2 points, has scored 20 or more in seven of the past 11 games.

David West is listed as a probable starter for Wednesday after missing his first game of the season last Wednesday because of a scratched eye.
