NEW YORK: GUARDS: RAYMOND FELTON will start at the point, which seems like a colossal mistake. He had his career year in New York under Mike D'Antoni, but the Knicks have gone away from the pick-and-roll system he thrived in . . . Don't be surprised if JASON KIDD is overtaking Felton in minutes played by midseason. He's limited athletically but still a heady passer . . . Resident chucker J.R. SMITH should see big minutes early before IMAN SHUMPERT steps in as the defense half of their shooting guard platoon as soon as his knee is recovered mid-season . . . RONNIE BREWER will be Smith's defensive complement while Shumpert is out . . . PABLO PRIGIONI is a game manager who provides insurance at the point. FORWARDS: This is once again CARMELO ANTHONY's team, as the Knicks will run their offense through him. It's going to be a lot of iso, and a lot of scoring opportunities for Melo . . . AMAR'E STOUDEMIRE doesn't fit nearly as well in this system as he did in former coach Mike D'Antoni's. He ended up forcing a lot of shots a year ago, and his durability is a major question mark . . . STEVE NOVAK will continue to come off the bench strictly as a three-point shooter. He's one of the best long-range bombers in the NBA, but he's too much of a defensive liability to play more than 20 minutes per night . . . Swingman JAMES WHITE will also get some minutes at the two or three spots with his 6-foot-7 frame. . . CHRIS COPELAND had some solid years overseas, but will be lucky to break into this rotation . . . KURT THOMAS is in player/coach mode. CENTERS: TYSON CHANDLER is indispensible on the defensive end as long as sieves Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire are also in the frontcourt . . . MARCUS CAMBY can't defendin space like Chandler can, but his ability to rebound and protect the rim will come in handy as the second unit is no better defensively than the starters . . . RASHEED WALLACE came out of retirement, but has a long way to go, especially with his lack of conditioning, before he contributes much at age 38.
UTAH: GUARDS: MO WILLIAMS will get a crack at running the point in Utah. He's more of a combo guard, but he'll do fine in an offense that revolves around the bigs . . . RANDY FOYE is a gunning combo guard who will step in as Utah's sixth man . . . ALEC BURKS started to come on late last year, making Raja Bell expendable. He'll come off the bench, but if he can start knocking down perimeter shots, he's in for a much bigger role . . . Yeah, that's right, EARL WATSON and JAMAAL TINSLEY are both still around. And they're both riding pine in Salt Lake . . . KEVIN MURPHY is a cagey scorer from tiny Tennessee Tech (no word on his Golden Tee skills). FORWARDS: PAUL MILLSAP was Utah's best all-around player last season and will be playing for a new contract. He should be able to keep his minutes despite Utah's young bigs behind him . . . GORDON HAYWARD will probably slide to the two. He has a chance for a breakout year after a strong finish to 2011-12 . . . MARVIN WILLIAMS gets a fresh start in Utah after a disappointing run in Atlanta. He figures to have a similar complementary role with the Jazz . . . DERRICK FAVORS is a long-term solution in the frontcourt. His offensive game is coming on, and he's already a far better defender than Al Jefferson . . . Slam dunk champion JEREMY EVANS and DeMARRE CARROLL will both provide energy off the bench. CENTERS: Like Millsap, AL JEFFERSON will hit free agency after the season. He's an incredibly limited player, a great scorer in the low post, but incapable of any other contributions and a huge liability on defense . . . ENES KANTER is still a few years away from a starting job. He has some rough edges to his game, but really had no problem adjusting to the physicality of the NBA.

(UPDATES with Knicks 1 game ahead)

*Knicks-Jazz Preview* =====================


New York (38-25) at Utah (34-32), 10:30 p.m. EDT

This has been a more than miserable road trip for the New York Knicks. At least it's one game from being over.

With their Atlantic Division lead dwindling, the injury-riddled Knicks will try to salvage the finale Monday night against the Utah Jazz.

New York (38-26) hasn't been able to offer much resistance in losing the first four games of the trip, averaging only 81.8 points - 17 below its season average - with each defeat by at least 13 points.

That lack of offense isn't a surprise with Carmelo Anthony playing one full game on the swing before he left Wednesday's 23-point loss at Denver in the third quarter with a knee injury. Fellow All-Star Tyson Chandler bruised his left knee in that game and also has sat out the past two games.

The four-game skid matches the team's season high and has allowed Brooklyn to climb within one game of the Atlantic lead.

"We're all professionals, and sometimes you're going to play short-handed, so you've got to compete," Jason Kidd said. "The biggest concern is just our health. We've got to get healthy first and go from there. But there's no guarantee those guys are going to come back, so we've got to play with the guys we have."

Missing the NBA's second-leading scorer in Anthony and seventh-best rebounder in Chandler again was too much for the Knicks to overcome in Sunday's 93-80 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. J.R. Smith led the way with 17 points but shot 4 of 20 as part of New York's 38.8 percent effort from the field. Kenyon Martin and Kurt Thomas, both forced into the starting lineup due to all the injuries, combined for 14 rebounds but totaled six points on 3-of-11 shooting.

New York also is still without Amare Stoudemire, who will be sidelined at least six more weeks after recently undergoing surgery on his right knee.

"We know we're a few men down and we can make excuses, but we're not going to make excuses, man," Martin said. "Guys have pride. We're going to compete every night, no matter who's playing for us. It's tough."

Smith is clearly the team's best offensive option without Anthony, but he continues to be wildly inconsistent. He scored 33 points in Thursday's loss to Portland after totaling 24 on 8-of-23 shooting in the trip's first two games.

Now the Knicks face the Jazz (34-32), the last team they beat. Smith scored 24 points and reserve Steve Novak had a season-high 20 in a 113-84 rout March 9 that completed Utah's 0-4 trip.

That was New York's third straight win in the series, but it has lost five in a row in Utah since a 73-62 victory Nov. 14, 2005.

The Jazz have bounced back to win two of three - both at home - since losing in New York and continue to battle the Los Angeles Lakers for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Gordon Hayward led five players in double figures with 17 points in his first start since November, helping Utah to a 90-84 victory over Memphis on Saturday. Mo Williams had 13 points and six assists in his sixth game since missing 32 with torn ligaments in his shooting hand.

"We got to grit and grind," Williams said. "I can steal that from Memphis because we are a replica of them."

Saturday's win was Utah's first against a team with a winning record since beating Golden State on Feb. 19.
