Knicks On A Roll

By Chris Sheridan

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- When Monday's final scrimmage ended, the New York Knicks ran for the exit door as a unit.

Apparently, it was time for them all to take a deep breath, get every extra second of extra rest they could and take stock of themselves after returning home from their first Western road trip, which concluded with a three-game winning streak after they had previously lost six in a row.

They are clearly a better, more well-oiled machine than they were when they left New York a week ago, and the next two to three weeks will go a long way toward showing whether their positive turn is going to have any permanence.

Fantasy Focus: What's The Rush?

By Neil Tardy
Special to ESPN.com

• Not sure whether Brandon Rush will stick in the Pacers' starting lineup. Apparently he got the nod on Monday because head coach Jim O'Brien wanted him guarding D-Wade. (Needless to say, that was a good move.) Regardless of his role for Tuesday, Rush will face a Cleveland Cavaliers team that yields the fifth-most 3-pointers. He seems like a good bet to reach double figures in scoring for the fourth straight game.

• The Philadelphia 76ers-Washington Wizards matchup could have its full complement of marquee talent, as both Andre Iguodala (Achilles) and John Wall (foot) could return for their respective teams.
