KEY GAME INFORMATION
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* ==========================

By JORDAN GARRETSON STATS Writer

New York (22-40) at Cleveland (24-38), 7:30 p.m. EDT

Despite shoddy seasons, the New York Knicks and Cleveland Cavaliers still have a chance to make the playoffs in the inferior Eastern Conference.

A manageable stretch in the schedule could make things much easier for the Knicks, while the Cavaliers will soon be taking on many of the league's top teams.

New York seeks just its third streak of at least three wins Saturday night at Cleveland.

The Knicks (23-40) sit in 11th place and one game behind the Cavaliers, while both - along with Detroit - are chasing Atlanta for the conference's final playoff spot.

New York's 108-81 home win over Utah on Friday was its second in a row after the team had dropped 13 of 15. Carmelo Anthony tallied 18 of his 29 points in a 39-point first quarter for the Knicks, who scored 38 in the first 12 minutes in Wednesday's win at Minnesota.

The Knicks have totaled just 19 turnovers over the last two games after averaging 15.0 during a seven-game skid. They also recorded 24 assists in each of the last two games after totaling 17 or fewer in each of their previous four.

"Last two games is, we had no choice," coach Mike Woodson said. "Time is somewhat running out and every game is important."

Leaving out the Knicks' March 19 contest against Indiana, eight of their next nine opponents have a combined record of 115-257. That slate includes two games with Philadelphia - losers of 15 straight - and another meeting with the Cavaliers on March 23.

Cleveland (24-39) is trying to end a three-game skid after a 101-92 loss at Charlotte on Friday. The Cavaliers were 3 of 17 from beyond the arc and Kyrie Irving missed all seven of his 3-point attempts.

Irving, who scored 13, had been averaging 25.8 points over his last five games while hitting 12 of 29 3-point attempts (41.4 percent).

"We have a chance and a shot, so why not? Why not us?" said Dion Waiters, who scored 19 in his second game back after being sidelined for seven contests with a hyperextended left knee. "We've got to have a sense of urgency. The clock is ticking. The games are running out. Making the playoffs is right there and we've got a great opportunity."

The Cavaliers' upcoming schedule won't do them any favors.

After playing New York, they will visit Phoenix, Golden State and the Los Angeles Clippers, followed by home tilts with Miami, Oklahoma City and Houston. Those six teams are all at least 11 games above .500.

Cleveland's playoff chances will likely be closely linked to Irving's shooting hand. The Cavaliers are 20-20 when he shoots at least 40.0 percent from the field compared to a 3-17 record when he fails to hit that mark.

Irving is averaging 28.3 points over his last seven games against the Knicks, though New York has won five of those matchups. The Knicks took a 117-86 home victory on Jan. 30 after losing 109-94 in Cleveland on Dec. 10.

Anthony is scoring 29.7 points per game during his last three meetings with the Cavaliers.
