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.
CLEVELAND: GUARDS: There are some durability concerns, but KYRIE IRVING is on the verge of stardom. He should benefit from the arrival of Anthony Bennett, the kind of pick-and-roll weapon Cleveland has lacked . . . DION WAITERS is still a work-in-progress defensively, and this will likely be another developmental year. He might end up settling in as the leader of the second unit . . . JARRETT JACK seems likely to close out games, even if he doesn't technically start. He's a creative shot-maker who will play close to starter's minutes . . . C.J. MILES is more of a situational three-point threat. SERGEY KARASEV, a polished Euro import, could push him for that role . . . CARRICK FELIX doesn't figure to crack this rotation. FORWARDS: No. 1 overall pick ANTHONY BENNETT will see time at both forward spots, and he'll be a pick-and-pop weapon no matter where he's playing. The question is whether he'll defend well enough to stay on the court for 30 minutes . . . There should also be enough minutes for TRISTAN THOMPSON, who hasn't quite put it together. The 22-year-old has upside though, and is a bigger part of Cleveland's future than Anderson Varejao . . . EARL CLARK gives the Cavs a quality second unit player who can play extended minutes if Bennett is overmatched defensively . . . A starter last year, ALONZO GEE figures to be a second-unit glue guy, but might be looking at a lot of DNP-CDs. CENTERS: ANDERSON VAREJAO is once again healthy and once again trade bait. No matter what the starting lineup looks like, he'll play major minutes at the four and five . . . The Cavs are taking a flier on ANDREW BYNUM. With his knee problems, it'd be surprising if he could give them 20-plus good minutes per night . . . TYLER ZELLER is likely the odd man out until Varejao is dealt or Bynum gets injured.

*Knicks-Cavaliers Preview* ==========================


New York (5-14) at Cleveland (7-13), 7:00 p.m. EDT

Just when it looked like the last-place New York Knicks were starting to get it together, they took a big step back their last time out.

The Knicks try to quickly put an embarrassing loss behind them when they visit the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night.

New York (5-14) followed a nine-game losing streak with its first set of back-to-back wins, 113-83 at Brooklyn on Thursday and 121-83 over Orlando on Friday. The Knicks, though, were handed the third-worst home loss in franchise history two days later, falling 114-73 to Boston.

"I wish I could explain it. I didn't see this coming," said coach Mike Woodson, whose team posted season lows in points and field-goal percentage (34.2). "I thought we had turned the corner somewhat. I can't have our guys stepping on the floor doing what they did."

Carmelo Anthony scored 19 but was the only starter to reach double figures. Iman Shumpert and Raymond Felton both went scoreless on a combined 0 of 12 from the field.

"It's just one of those games where it happens," Felton said. "You hate that it happens, you hate to get beat like that inside your building. It was nasty game, it's a bad taste in our mouth right now."

Amar'e Stoudemire had a season-high 17 points off the bench, but New York was outscored 42-22 in the paint and 22-6 in transition. The Knicks were also outrebounded 46-26.

"We got to turn this thing around against Cleveland," Stoudemire said. "We can't dwell on the past, we have to move forward and understand that we're a much better team than what we showed (Sunday)."

The Cavaliers (7-13), who have dropped three straight and five of six to the Knicks, are expecting to get their best shot Tuesday.

"This is a team that won 54 games last year. I think that's what people forget," backup guard Jarrett Jack said. "They're dangerous, especially with the added motivation from the kind of loss they had (Sunday). They're going to come in like the prideful team that they are and try to represent themselves as a top-tier bunch in the East."

Cleveland is enjoying its best stretch of the season, winning three of four while allowing 92.8 points per game - 6.8 less than its season mark. Andrew Bynum has been key over the last four, averaging 18.0 points and 9.0 rebounds.

"I feel like we're hitting a bit of a stride," Jack said. "Hopefully our best basketball is further down the road, but I think we're playing pretty good right now."

Each of the Cavaliers' last three wins have come at home, where they are 6-3 compared to 1-10 on the road. After falling 108-89 at Atlanta on Friday, Cleveland beat the Clippers 88-82 on its own court the following night.

Kyrie Irving was held scoreless for the first time in his career against the Hawks before scoring 20 against Los Angeles. Tristan Thompson added 20 and 13 boards.

"I don't care if he goes 0 for 30," coach Mike Brown said of Irving, who leads the team with 19.7 points per game. "I want him to keep being aggressive. If he misses five in a row and he feels like he can a great look his next time, take it. We need him to score and that's what he can do. He can score and he can play make for his teammates. Have a short memory."

Irving is averaging 27.4 points in his last five matchups against New York.
