NEW ORLEANS: GUARDS: JRUE HOLIDAY is perfect for head coach Monty Williams. He defends and can create in the half-court set . . . ERIC GORDON didn't want New Orleans to match his deal two offseasons ago, and he spent last year letting everyone know it. If healthy and motivated (two big 'ifs') he's a 20-point scorer . . . TYREKE EVANS will get some starts at the three and come off the bench at times. Either way, he is the kind of aggressive (if sometimes out-of- control) offensive threat this lineup needs . . . Even after an injury-filled season, ANTHONY MORROW's shooting could earn him a rotation spot . . . AUSTIN RIVERS was overmatched last season, to the point where he didn't seem to belong in the NBA. It's tough to see the win-now Pels relying on him often. FORWARDS: ANTHONY DAVIS was overwhelmed by Williams' complex defensive schemes, and opponents consistently took him out of plays with screen-and-rolls at him. Williams will surely use some of his new talent to allow Davis to roam more on defense . . . RYAN ANDERSON's defensive shortcomings could lead to a drop in playing time, but his shooting and the spacing it creates is too valuable to this offense . . . AL-FAROUQ AMINU will likely split time with Tyreke Evans at the three. He's more valuable defensively, and is starting to show some signs of improvement on offense . . . DARIUS MILLER has a shot to break into the rotation if his defense improves . . . LANCE THOMAS is a long athlete who is capable of playing some good defensive minutes . . . ARINZE ONUAKU most likely won't see the floor for more than a minute at a time. CENTERS: JASON SMITH might be their most complete defensive big man, and that should be enough to earn him solid minutes . . . GREG STIEMSMA is more off a warm body, but he at least gives them another rim-protecting option . . . JEFF WITHEY will spend most of the season on the bench learning Williams' complex schemes.
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.

*Pelicans-Knicks Preview* =========================


New Orleans (7-8) at New York (3-12), 7:30 p.m. EDT

Things are so bad for the New York Knicks that they are a game away from tying a mark set during the embarrassing Larry Brown era.

Losers of eight consecutive games, the Knicks will try to avoid the franchise's longest skid in nearly eight years Sunday night when they host the New Orleans Pelicans.

New York's eight-game slide is its longest since it dropped nine in a row March 19-April 4, 2006. That team finished 23-59, the franchise's worst record since 1964.

The Knicks (3-12) are coming off a four-game road trip where they struggled to find a consistent offensive rhythm. New York shot just 42 percent in the four games, and hasn't scored more than 100 points in seven straight contests. Carmelo Anthony has led the team in scoring in all 15 games this season, the only player in the NBA to be his team's top scorer in every game.

In the final game of the trip Friday in Denver, the Knicks had a chance to tie it at the end, but Anthony's jumper at the buzzer rattled out, and New York fell 97-95.

"We're trying. We're playing much harder," Anthony said. "We played at a must faster pace. We started trusting one another out there tonight. It's an uphill battle. It's a tough battle and tough hole to get out of."

New York is averaging 92.4 points per game to rank 25th in the NBA.

"Any loss is tough. We have lost eight games in a row. That is something, as a coach, that I haven't experienced in a while," coach Mike Woodson said. "It is frustrating. I know it is frustrating for the guys in the locker room. But we have to stay the course and keep grinding. We have to go home and get ready for New Orleans and see if we can get off this slide."

Although the Knicks are averaging 5.6 points more at home than on the road, they've lost six straight at Madison Square Garden since a season-opening win over Milwaukee.

Unlike the Knicks, the Pelicans (7-8) do not have one primary, go-to scorer. Instead New Orleans relies on its depth, with six players scoring more than 10.5 points per game. Anthony Davis leads the way at 19.6 per game, to go along with 10.6 rebounds and 3.9 blocks.

"We have a ton of weapons, with a lot of guys who can draw attention and get the ball to wide-open shooters," forward Ryan Anderson told team's official website.

Anderson has been a key in recent weeks, averaging 19.0 points since returning from a toe injury Nov. 16.

The Pelicans snapped a four-game road losing streak Friday with a 121-105 victory over the 76ers. Eric Gordon led five players in double figures with a season-high 26 points on 11-of-16 shooting and Jrue Holiday added 20 points and 13 assists in his return to Philadelphia.

"We had 30 assists, but I thought we could have had 35 or 40 assists tonight," coach Monty Williams said. "We just have to learn how to play together consistently."

It was the fourth win in six games for New Orleans, which shot 54.8 percent from the field, its second-best performance of the season.

The Knicks have dominated the Pelicans of late, winning eight of the past nine games. They swept last season's series, with Anthony averaging 28.0 points.
