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.
BOSTON: GUARDS: RAJON RONDO is the last man standing in Boston. Coming off a torn ACL and with a weakened supporting cast, it's going to be a long year . . . AVERY BRADLEY is the favorite to start alongside Rondo. He's still lost on offense, but his defense will be much needed . . . COURTNEY LEE continues to tease with flashes of talent, but hasn't shown consistency and is no longer 'young' . . . JORDAN CRAWFORD will hoist a lot of shots . . . MARSHON BROOKS fell out of favor in Brooklyn and is just hanging on to an NBA roster spot . . . KEITH BOGANS is in Boston because a new deal made the numbers work on the Nets trade . . . Local product PHIL PRESSEY, an undersized point guard, will try to stick as a back-up. FORWARDS: Suddenly, JEFF GREEN is Boston's first option on offense. He showed an ability to score with 20.1 PPG over 17 starts last season, but he'll be in for a whole new world of attention as the only legitimate scorer on this team . . . BRANDON BASS should continue to hold down the power forward spot, and he'll get to take more shots with the team rebuilding . . . Durability is a major issue for JARED SULLINGER, but he has a chance to play big minutes for a team in need of his offensive skill set . . . A washed-up vet with arguably the worst contract in the NBA, GERALD WALLACE is of little use to the Celtics (or any other team) . . . KRIS HUMPHRIES is also dead weight, but is a more enticing trade chip due to an expiring contract. CENTERS: Rookie KELLY OLYNYK is going to get pushed around, but he has some rare shooting and ball-handling skills for a 7-footer. Boston has little to lose by letting him learn on the job . . . VITOR FAVERANI is a tough-nosed Euro import who gives them insurance behind Olynyk.

*Knicks-Celtics Preview* ========================


New York (25-40) at Boston (22-41), 7:30 p.m. EDT

Give the dysfunctional New York Knicks some credit - they're winning the games they're supposed to be winning for a playoff push in the Eastern Conference.

The Knicks try to match their season best with a fifth consecutive win when they visit the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night.

With seemingly one distraction after another all season - from Carmelo Anthony's impending decision to opt out of his deal at season's end to J.R. Smith's disruptive behavior to season-long speculation over coach Mike Woodson's job security to the latest drama of owner James Dolan's rumored attempts to entice Phil Jackson to join the organization in some capacity - the Knicks (25-40) have consistently provided some form of entertainment despite being 10th in the East and 3 1/2 games out of the final postseason spot.

This past week their play has earned them plaudits, averaging 114.0 points while shooting 41.3 percent (50 for 121) from 3-point range during the win streak. Their 123-110 victory Monday night over Philadelphia may have been the most encouraging one since rookie Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 28 points and was one of four Knicks to finish with at least 20 as Anthony didn't have to shoulder the scoring burden alone.

"I love nights like this," said Anthony, who finished with 22 points. "Four guys with 20-plus points. Sharing the ball. Making plays. Having fun out there. Taking the load off me. I love nights like that."

Of course, most teams would love the opportunity to gain ground in the playoff chase at the expense of Minnesota, Utah, Cleveland and the 76ers - not exactly the NBA's version of "Murderers Row" with a combined .366 winning percentage. And after this game versus the Celtics, who dropped to 22-42 after Tuesday night's 94-83 loss at Indiana, the Knicks wrap up this soft patch of schedule Saturday at home against league-worst Milwaukee (13-51).

If the Knicks continue sharing the ball, the caliber of opponent - or lack thereof - could prove irrelevant. They've averaged 23.5 assists in the four straight wins, contributing to 49.7 percent shooting - well above their season mark of 44.6 percent.

New York's season-best five-game win streak came Jan. 5-13.

The Celtics were denied a third straight victory Tuesday as they failed to overcome a 15-point second-half deficit despite cutting it to one on two occasions. Jared Sullinger scored 17 points and Kris Humphries added 15 for Boston, which shot 35.2 percent while letting Indiana convert 54.8 percent of its attempts.

"We shot 35 percent and we had the ball down two or three with three or four minutes to go. It was a pretty good effort by our guys," coach Brad Stevens said. "We're 16-10 assists to turnovers. We got 20 offensive rebounds. Everything went great except the ball going in the basket.

"That's okay, I feel like we're getting better, I really do and I think you can see it."

Despite splitting their last four games, the Celtics have played strong perimeter defense, limiting opponents to 19.1 percent (17 for 89) from beyond the arc. The Knicks have had some long-range success in three games versus Boston at 36.8 percent (21 for 57) and made 10 of 20 in a 114-88 rout in the most recent meeting Jan. 28. Anthony had 24 points in 28 minutes while Hardaway and Smith combined for 33 off the bench.

Boston won the other two games this season, including a 114-73 drubbing at New York on Dec. 8.
