Raptors-Knicks Preview

(AP) -- The slumping Toronto Raptors still sit comfortably atop the otherwise deplorable Atlantic Division, but they haven't resembled a first-place team of late.

Toronto tries to avoid its longest skid of the season Saturday night as it goes for a third consecutive win over the NBA-worst New York Knicks.

The Raptors (37-21) have followed a four-game winning streak with four straight defeats, a stretch over which they've managed 88.5 points per game. DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry have been limited to an average of 14.0 and 12.0 points, respectively, while shooting a combined 30.0 percent during the slide.
