PHOENIX: GUARDS: ERIC BLEDSOE immediately becomes the Suns' best player. He dominated for stretches while backing up Chris Paul . . . GORAN DRAGIC and Bledsoe will play together since they're the two best players on this team. Dragic also has enough size to match up with most twos . . . After a disappointing stint as a starter, SHANNON BROWN will return to the second unit . . . KENDALL MARSHALL doesn't fit new coach Jeff Hornacek's up-tempo style. The Suns will move him if they can . . . ARCHIE GOODWIN looked lost at times at Kentucky, but his ability to get to the line bodes well for his NBA future . . . GERALD GREEN is the kind of athlete who could make an impact on an up-tempo second unit . . . MALCOLM LEE is here in case Marshall is dealt. FORWARDS: MARKIEFF MORRIS has some upside as a skilled stretch four. He's shown flashes over his first two seasons, and playing in Honracek's up-tempo system should only help him take the next step forward . . . MARCUS MORRIS is still a man without a position, a tweener in a bad way. The Suns will try to make him into an effective second-unit guy . . . CHANNING FRYE missed all of last season with a heart ailment, and the Suns don't seem to be expecting to get anything from him this season.CENTERS: MARCIN GORTAT will keep the seat warm for Alex Len. He doesn't fit this up-and-down offense . . . ALEX LEN must become more assertive and the bust factor is high, but 7-footers with his mobility and touch don't come around often . . . MILES PLUMLEE could get minutes as a defensive specialist after making just 5-of-21 FG as a rookie.
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.

*Suns-Knicks Preview* =====================


Phoenix (21-15) at New York (14-22), 7:30 p.m. EDT

The New York Knicks are playing much better - particularly on defense.

They'll try to take advantage of a poorly shooting Phoenix Suns squad at home on Monday night as they try to extend their winning streak to five games.

New York (14-22) has won four in a row after previously winning consecutive games only once all season. Two of their victories since Jan. 5 have come at Madison Square Garden, where they had lost four straight.

The Knicks are allowing just 87.3 points during the winning streak after giving up 107.2 while losing four of their previous five.

A balanced offensive effort was also present in a 102-92 win at Philadelphia on Saturday. J.R. Smith scored 11 of his 14 points in the second quarter as the Knicks outscored the 76ers 32-12. Smith had been benched in the previous game after attempting to untie opponents' shoelaces in two straight contests.

Smith finished plus-20 against Philadelphia, the best plus-minus posted by a Knicks player in nearly a month. He was one of three players to record at least six assists, with Carmelo Anthony credited with seven to go along with 18 points and nine rebounds.

"I just wanted to be aggressive, attack, get back to my old self, play with a chip on my shoulder and it worked," said Smith, who was also fined $50,000 by the league. "It was very important for me as well as the team to get out there and be successful with scoring the ball and getting my teammates open shots."

Amare Stoudemire also provided a game-high 21 points in 22 minutes off the bench while going 8 of 10 from the floor.

Smith helped New York sweep last season's series with Phoenix for the first time since 2002-03, hitting a 3-pointer as time expired in a 99-97 road win on Dec. 26, 2012. He finished with 27 points.

The Suns (21-15) have shot 40.6 percent in losing three of the first four on a five-game trip. They shot 39.4 percent Saturday at Detroit, but still lost only narrowly on Josh Smith's driving basket with 1.2 seconds left after Gerald Green had made three free throws to tie it.

Smith had hit a go-ahead 3-pointer one possession earlier for the Pistons.

"Those were two tough shots that Josh made," Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said after the 110-108 defeat. "We let him get to the basket at the end, but he was going in the wrong direction and still knocked that down. Before that, we play great defense, they lose the ball and they manage to bat it out to him and he hits the 3. That's just a bad break for us."

Channing Frye, who averages 11.9 points, scored 21, the third time in five games he's had at least that many while hitting five or more 3-pointers.

Tyson Chandler and Beno Udrih are both questionable for New York. Chandler has missed three games due to an upper respiratory infection while Udrih has been sidelined for two contests with a knee injury.

Stoudemire is averaging 29.0 points in three games against his former team, though he hasn't faced Phoenix since Jan. 18, 2012.
