The Knicks have so far proved to be the opposite of must-see TV, causing the NBA's national television partners to do all they can to shed games involving the struggling team.

The latest move came Wednesday when ESPN announced it was dropping the Feb. 22 game between the Knicks and Cavaliers, which was scheduled to be seen on ABC. It's the fourth Knicks game ESPN removed from its schedule in the past week.

Instead, that ABC window will switch to March 29 and feature the Rockets and Wizards.

ABC also will get Cavaliers vs. Rockets on March 1, replacing a Thunder-Lakers game.

The Knicks' only remaining ESPN game is Feb. 1 (Super Bowl Sunday) at home against the Lakers. Their only remaining TNT game is March 12 on the road against the Lakers.
