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.
TORONTO: GUARDS: KYLE LOWRY is healthy again and will be handed the reigns. He could be the Raptors best player on both ends of the floor . . . As of now, JOSE CALDERON is still on the roster, but he's not long for Toronto with Lowry's arrival. He won't start over Lowry, but he could see decent minutes as the Raptors attempt to showcase him . . . With Toronto's influx of new talent, DeMAR DeROZAN could be marginalized on the offensive end. He hasn't really progressed past the dunker/raw athlete stage of his career . . . Rookie TERRENCE ROSS can just about match DeRozan's athleticism, and while he has no handle, he's a potentially deadly three-point threat . . . JOHN LUCAS III will back up both guard spots . . . ALAN ANDERSON returns as a defensive stopper in the second unit. FORWARDS: ANDREA BARGNANI makes his triumphant return and will likely go back to the perimeter. The Raptors have beefed up in the middle so Bargnani can play outside more . . . LANDRY FIELDS plays enough defense to earn minutes, but it seems like his signing was more a result of Toronto playing cap games to try to land Steve Nash. He'll likely platoon with Terrence Ross . . . ED DAVIS made some strides this offseason, but he's still not where the Raptors want him to be on the offensive end . . . LINAS KLEIZA's knee should be in better shape this season. The Raptors want more shooting, and he has a chance to grab a bigger role . . . Toronto will do everything it can to get out from under AMIR JOHNSON's contract . . . DOMINIC McGUIRE figures to occupy the final seat on the Raptors bench. CENTERS: JONAS VALANCIUNAS would have been the No. 2 pick of the draft had he come out a year later. He's a wiry, strong athlete who's physical down low with soft touch out to 10 feet. Toronto sees him as a franchise cornerstone who meshes nicely with Bargnani . . . AARON GRAY should provide ample competition for the starting center job.

*Knicks-Raptors Preview* ========================

New York (32-19) at Toronto (22-33), 7:00 p.m. EDT

Carmelo Anthony and Rudy Gay had plenty of problems getting untracked when the New York Knicks and Toronto Raptors met last week.

These Baltimore natives combined for 36 missed shots, and the Raptors prevailed in an ugly game.

They'll try to hand the visiting Knicks a season-high fourth straight loss Friday night.

Toronto (22-33) won 92-88 at New York last Wednesday, and neither one of these players was on target much. Gay made 4 of 21 shots for 11 points while Anthony was 5 of 24 for 12 points to go with 12 rebounds, although the Knicks forward said afterward that he was plagued by a dead arm.

Alan Anderson scored 26 and DeMar DeRozan added 20 to help make up for Gay's woes while J.R. Smith led New York (32-19) with 26 points in a contest that featured 56 free throws and six technical fouls.

The Knicks are enduring their second three-game slide and their lead atop the Atlantic Division has been cut to one game over Brooklyn.

"We got Toronto who played well at our place a week ago, they beat us and they're playing well," New York coach Mike Woodson said.

Anthony didn't fare much better his next time out, making 7 of 21 shots for 15 points as the Knicks suffered their worst loss, 125-91 at Indiana on Wednesday in their first game since the All-Star break.

"We didn't show up," Woodson said. "They whipped our (expletive) from beginning to end."

The coach admitted he is searching for answers on the perimeter since his current starting backcourt features Raymond Felton, a 40.3 percent shooter, and Jason Kidd, who is at 38.9.

"When 'Melo is struggling a little bit and Raymond and Kidd not making shots, that's tough," Woodson said. "We're going to have to work through it and figure it out."

Gay followed up his poor performance against the Knicks with a 24-point effort as Toronto matched a season high with a fifth straight win, 96-88 Washington on Tuesday. He found things more difficult the next night as he made 5 of 15 shots for 13 points in an 88-82 defeat to Memphis, his former team.

Gay said that he needs to adjust to being the focal point of opponents' defenses.

"There's still ways to find to make things happen," Gay said. "You take it as a sign of respect but I think we still could've gotten this win."

The Raptors, who shot 36.6 percent against the Grizzlies, have held each of their last three opponents to 88 points. That's the type of basketball coach Dwane Casey expects to see down the stretch.

"It's about being tough, being strong with the ball, making the right decisions, not playing into the crowd, and playing with that type of mental fortitude," Casey said.

Casey has restored Amir Johnson to his starting lineup the last two games after he gave Landry Fields the start last week in New York. Fields had four points and 10 rebounds in his first game against his former team.

DeRozan had seven points on 1-of-9 shooting Wednesday - ending a string of three straight 20-point performances - but his 19.3 scoring average against the Knicks is his highest against any team.
