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.
SACRAMENTO: GUARDS: GREIVIS VASQUEZ seems to have the edge in the point guard battle. He's a pass-first floor general who fits better in a lineup full of chuckers . . . ISAIAH THOMAS will have a major role whether he starts or not. He can score, and while his lack of size is a defensive liability, he makes up for it with harassing on-ball pressure . . . MARCUS THORNTON will eventually be relegated to a smaller role, but the gunning combo guard will get his minutes until Ben McLemore is ready . . . BEN MCLEMORE takes a lot of heat for his lack of assertiveness, but he can knock down corner threes and is an outstanding athlete, which is enough to make him a fine role player . . . JIMMER FREDETTE is kicking around as trade bait . . . Second-rounder RAY MCCALLUM should earn a bench role.FORWARDS: With his potential to be a solid defender, JASON THOMPSON is likely to retain his starting job. He's an afterthought on offense, though . . . LUC RICHARD MBAH A MOUTE seems like a natural to slide into the starting lineup. He can defend multiple spots and doesn't need touches on a team of players who do . . . CARL LANDRY could unseat Thompson. We see him in the same kind of bench role he had in Golden State. He's very good offensively and a relentless rebounder, but will struggle defensively against top-line forwards . . . JOHN SALMONS avoided the amnesty axe, though his role will likely be reduced again . . . Stretch four PATRICK PATTERSON is on the fringe of this rotation . . . Streaky shooting should have TRAVIS OUTLAW in and out of the rotation. CENTERS: The new regime of head coach Michael Malone will try again with DEMARCUS COUSINS, who continues to show flashes of dominance but too often plays and acts like a head case. He's playing for a contract, which would presumably have him on his best behavior . . . CHUCK HAYES will continue to be a second-unit glue guy at the four and five.

(UPDATES with new Woodson quote in 5th graf.)

*Knicks-Kings Preview* ======================

New York (29-42) at Sacramento (25-45), 10:00 p.m. EDT

The New York Knicks started a critical five-game trip in disastrous fashion.

The games are dwindling for the Knicks to make the playoffs as they look to recover Wednesday night versus the Sacramento Kings.

New York (29-42) had its season-high eight-game win streak end with Sunday's 106-100 home defeat to Cleveland and now will try to avoid dropping three in a row after Tuesday's 127-96 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Knicks gave up 51 points in the third quarter, their worst defensive period in franchise history. They are three games behind eighth-place Atlanta in the Eastern Conference with 11 remaining.

"I thought we came out ready to play," New York coach Mike Woodson said. "I mean, we held them to 14 points in the first quarter, and then that second and third quarter, all hell broke loose. We just didn't have any answer for them from a defensive standpoint."

The blowout loss allowed Woodson to rest his starters for most of the fourth quarter to prepare for this game. J.R. Smith played two minutes in the period and Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler each logged four, with Anthony scoring nine points in the quarter to finish with 29.

Anthony had 36 points and 11 rebounds the last time these teams met, a 106-101 overtime loss Feb. 12. The Kings (25-45) know they will have their hands full again.

"They're not going to surprise you with what they're doing," Sacramento coach Michael Malone said. "You know Carmelo's going to have the ball on the left elbow on an iso, he's going to have the ball, high pick-and-roll, and he's going to have the ball in the post. But now the question is can you stop it?"

One player very familiar with Anthony is fellow Baltimore native Rudy Gay, who was also a former division rival during his days with Toronto. Gay said there is no easy answer on how he plans to contain Anthony.

"(He's) a guy that's going to take a lot of shots, just try to make each one of them tough," Gay said. "He's going to make his baskets, he's going to get at least his average, he's a scorer. And they're a team that features him."

New York will try to improve to 6-10 in the second halves of back-to-back games and this time will have Smith, who missed the last meeting with a fractured left cheek bone.

Kings center DeMarcus Cousins has posted seven straight double-doubles, averaging 22.3 points and 14.1 rebounds in that span. He had 32 points and 12 boards in Sunday's 124-107 win over Milwaukee.

Point guard Isaiah Thomas is questionable with a right quad contusion suffered in that contest.

"If he can't play, obviously we'll have Ray McCallum and then we might have to have some point forward with Rudy Gay or somebody else handling the ball at times," Malone said.

Malone also said he would give more playing time Wednesday to Royce White, who trying to make a new name for himself after the former Rockets first-round pick never played for Houston due to an anxiety disorder. White played the final 48 seconds against the Bucks and the last 56 two nights earlier versus San Antonio.

"We're going to get Royce in the game prior to the last two minutes of the fourth quarter to give him a real look to see what he can do," Malone said.
