Preview: Bobcats at Knicks

They'll look to build on their strong showing as they travel to Madison Square Garden for a Friday night showdown with the New York Knicks. The Bobcats bounced back from a loss to Miami with victories over Toronto and the Los Angeles Clippers — and now have the privilege of facing a Knicks team that has dropped five consecutive decisions.

The New York Rangers have benefited from a solid stretch to move their way up the congested Metropolitan Division. The Rangers, who are one point out of third place in the division, look to improve to 7-2-1 in their last 10 games when they host the Dallas Stars on Friday.

Preview: Heat at Knicks

The last thing the stumbling New York Knicks need is a distraction - but they have one looming as they prepare to host the Miami Heat on Thursday evening. The Knicks are reportedly looking to deal enigmatic guard J.R. Smith following his latest discretion - untying Greg Monroe's shoe during New York's 89-85 win over Detroit and earning a $50,000 fine in the process. The Knicks will have their hands full with a Heat team looking to build on its three-game winning streak.

Preview: Rangers at Lightning

Henrik Lundqvist is expected back in net for the New York Rangers as they visit the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday to try and avenge a humbling 5-0 defeat last month. Lundqvist, the 2012 Vezina Trophy winner, sat out the last three games as rookie backup Cam Talbot won the first two before losing 3-2 at Washington on Friday. Lundqvist, who is 10-15-2 this season, will face a Lightning team that has points in six straight games (5-0-1) and stands second in the Atlantic Division.

The Knicks won back-to-back games only once this season and have yet to find consistent scoring support behind Carmelo Anthony, the league’s second-leading scorer. Orlando lost 10 of its last 12 and dropped the first two of a six-game homestand to Utah and Sacramento and also lost at New York by 38 points on Dec. 6.

Preview: Knicks at Bucks

There aren't many things worse than the New York Knicks' road record - but the Milwaukee Bucks' home mark is one of them. Something will have to give Wednesday night as the Knicks travel to Milwaukee in a battle between two of the worst teams in the league. New York is coming off yet another soul-crushing loss - dropping a one-point decision to Washington on Monday night - while the Bucks have dropped three straight, the latest a 13-point loss in Dallas.

Preview: Flames at Rangers

After four consecutive losses, the skidding New York Rangers vie for the first win of their nine-game homestand when they host the Calgary Flames on Sunday.

The 2012 Vezina Trophy winner has received scant catcalls from the home crowd while dropping seven straight (0-6-1) at Madison Square Garden.
