KEY GAME INFORMATION
MINNESOTA: GUARDS: Unlike last year, RICKY RUBIO should be 100 percent healthy for all of this season. He's one of the NBA's most creative playmakers. Now if only he could make a jump shot . . . KEVIN MARTIN has become much more of a catch-and-shoot player after years of attacking the basket and living at the line. He is coming off his best year shooting the ball . . . If the Wolves don't move J.J. BAREA, they'll have him in the sixth man role they initially envisioned before injuries destroyed the roster a year ago . . . ALEXEY SHVED did a nice job holding down this backcourt as a rookie last year, but he's a second-unit talent, which is the role he'll be in this season. FORWARDS: KEVIN LOVE should bounce back completely this season, as his hand injury is unlikely to linger. Lock him into the All-Star game . . . CHASE BUDINGER never got a chance to get going last season, but he's exactly the kind of spot-up shooter and savvy cutter who should thrive alongside Ricky Rubio. Unfortunately, he is sidelined with a knee injury for several months . . . COREY BREWER gives the Timberwolves a defensive specialist to platoon with Budinger. Someone has to convince him he can't shoot, though . . . With Love back, DERRICK WILLIAMS returns to the bench as a seemingly never-ending project . . . SHABAZZ MUHAMMAD seems like a low-risk, but low-reward, second-unit scorer . . . DANTE CUNNINGHAM will back up both post spots. He figures to play sparingly unless injuries hit. CENTERS: NIKOLA PEKOVIC signed a $60M deal in August to return to the team and hold down the low post. He's an absolute beast on the offensive boards . . . GORGUI DIENG seems ready to help off the bench. He's a bit limited athletically and on offense, but can block shots . . . RONNY TURIAF will battle Dieng for bench minutes.
NEW YORK: GUARDS: RAYMOND FELTON is still the best the Knicks can do at point guard. With his shortcomings in the half court, head coach Mike Woodson's desire to go up-tempo should play to Felton's skill set a little bit better . . . IMAN SHUMPERT should be ready for a slightly bigger role. He's their best perimeter defender and a good enough spot-up shooter to play off Carmelo Anthony . . . J.R. SMITH's offseason knee surgery is a bit of a concern, as is the fact that he's no longer in a contract year. Still, the reigning Sixth Man of the Year should light it up on many nights . . . PABLO PRIGIONI will be Felton's primary back-up. He disappears at times, but can at least knock down threes . . . BENO UDRIH will provide quality backup minutes after another solid year seeing big minutes in Orlando'TIM HARDAWAY JR. is likely looking at a redshirt year in 2013-14. FORWARDS: Last year was CARMELO ANTHONY's dream offense, with lots of isolation plays. With his improved three-point shot, Melo should make a run at a second-straight scoring title . . . ANDREA BARGNANI might start by default, but he's more suited to a part-time role as a one-dimensional floor spacer . . . Expect to see a lot of lineups with either Anthony or METTA WORLD PEACE at the four. MWP is still good enough defensively to justify his erratic shot selection . . . AMAR'E STOUDEMIRE will likely be limited to a part-time role due to injuries. He'll try to re-invent himself as a second-unit scorer . . . KENYON MARTIN will be counted on to play some four and five off the bench . . . Athletic rookie C.J. LESLIE is ticketed for the D-League. CENTERS: TYSON CHANDLER will be relied on heavily on the glass for what could be the weakest rebounding team in the NBA. The Knicks would like to keep his regular-season minutes down, but they may be forced to play him a lot if they're going to get home court in a first-round playoff series . . . The Knicks will try to develop JEREMY TYLER into a useful No. 2 center.

*Timberwolves-Knicks Preview* =============================

By NICOLINO DIBENEDETTO STATS Writer

Minnesota (2-0) at New York (1-1), 7:30 p.m. EDT

Shutting down one of the NBA's elite players put the Minnesota Timberwolves on the cusp of their best start in 12 years.

Another strong defensive effort against last season's scoring champion should be enough to achieve that feat.

Two days after bottling up Kevin Durant, the Timberwolves will look to shut down Carmelo Anthony and end a four-game slide against the New York Knicks on Sunday night at Madison Square Garden.

Minnesota (2-0) turned in an impressive performance in Friday's 100-81 victory over Oklahoma City, holding the Thunder to 34.9-percent shooting - including 7 for 31 from beyond the arc - and forcing 21 turnovers with 14 steals.

The defense was particularly strong versus Durant. The three-time scoring champion hit only four of his 11 shots and went 1 for 5 from 3-point range to finish with 13 points.

The Timberwolves' outstanding defensive display came two days after they opened the season with a 120-115 overtime win over Orlando.

"We can be very good," forward Kevin Love said of the defense. "We can be very good. But I've learned not to look too far into the future. I just want to take it day by day."

He doesn't have to look too far ahead for the next task with Minnesota seeking its best start since opening 6-0 in 2001-02.

To get there the Timberwolves will have to beat the Knicks (1-1) at MSG for the first time in four visits. Minnesota has struggled defensively against New York, surrendering an average of 103.8 points over the past four meetings.

Anthony has a combined 69 points over the last two matchups. The star forward, last season's NBA leader with 28.7 points per game, has averaged 31.6 over his last five home games against the Wolves.

Anthony, though, fell well short of those numbers Thursday and missed a long jumper as time expired in a 82-81 loss at Chicago.

"I got the look I wanted," said Anthony, who finished with 22 points, six rebounds, six assists and six steals.

The Knicks need to show some improvement from the field after making 36.0 percent of their shots against the Bulls a day after sinking 50.7 percent in a 90-83 home win over Milwaukee. They've shot 48.1 percent over the last four meetings with Minnesota.

Amare Stoudemire could make his Garden debut after scoring five points in a limited role off the bench Thursday. The forward is still recovering from minor knee surgery after various injuries limited him to 29 games in 2012-13.

"Very pleased with how I felt (Thursday), as far as my body," Stoudemire said. "Just going to continue to keep building and keep getting better."

Love, who had 24 points and 12 rebounds Friday, has missed the last two meetings with the Knicks after averaging 32.0 points and 22.3 boards over the previous three.

He had a career-high 31 boards with 31 points in the Timberwolves' last victory over New York on Nov. 12, 2010.

The Timberwolves will be without Ronny Turiaf, who is out indefinitely with a fractured right elbow suffered in the second quarter Friday. The reserve center was slated to make his first appearance at MSG since the Knicks traded him in December 2011 in the three-team deal that brought Tyson Chandler to New York.
