Jeremy Lin is recovering well from knee surgery, but doesn’t expect to play in the first round of the playoffs.

"I think unless something goes really well, I wouldn't get there," Lin said before New York's 100-99 overtime win over the Bulls on Sunday.

Lin, who has been out since tearing cartilage in his left knee on Mar. 24, won’t rule out a return if the Knicks can advance in the postseason.

“It depends on how far and how long it goes,” Lin said. “But obviously I want to get to 100 percent and then come back, hopefully see what I can do. By then it'll be a different team identity, chemistry, so it gets tricky, too. Yeah, I'm doing everything, we're doing everything we can to get back as soon as possible.”

He was averaging 14.6 points and 6.1 a.ssists in 26.9 minutes per game.

By the crazy, frantic, ear-splitting end, after the Knicks had both blown a 21-point lead and doggedly dug out of a 10-point hole, after they had hit the boards and hit the floor and raved at the defensive job rookie Iman Shumpert did on Chicago Bulls' reigning league MVP Derrick Rose -- as crazy as that sounded on an afternoon Rose scored 29 points -- Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony was still the hottest hand left on the Madison Square Garden floor Sunday.

And he let everyone know it by celebrating his last 3-pointer of the game -- an overtime game-winner he rattled in from 25 feet out to beat the NBA''s winningest team -- by spinning around and screaming, "This is my house!"

"Yeah, I did say that," Anthony admitted with a laugh. "It was just that they were talking some trash out there, in the moment."

If this is a preview of what a first-round playoff showdown between the Knicks and Bulls and Anthony vs. Rose, is going to be like, then bring it on.

The Garden never totally felt like Anthony's house before Sunday -- not really, no matter how often it was said just because he's the Knicks best player.

But then, Anthony never had a signature win like this since he came to New York a little over a year ago. The 43 points he poured in Sunday were his career-high as a Knick. And the two clutch 3-pointers he hit -- one with 11.2 seconds to play to force overtime, and the second from 25 feet out and 8.2 seconds left to give the Knicks a heart-pounding 100-99 win -- were easily the two most important shots he's made since he forced the blockbuster trade that brought him from Denver.

Anthony acted like it, too. He took off on an impromptu victory lap to slap hands with some fans after the Bulls' Rose missed a driving, corkscrewing layup attempt just ahead of the final buzzer with Knicks center Tyson Chandler harassing him. The rest of the Knicks ran off their bench, celebrating, as the Garden crowd stood and roared.

"That's the way the Garden's supposed to be," Anthony said, laughing again.

What made Anthony's performance all the more impressive was Anthony did it against the team with the NBA's best record and deepest defensive frontcourt. And he did it, though Bulls' defensive guru Tom Thibodeau -- who could win his second straight coach of the year award in as many years -- sent three or four different defenders at Anthony in the course of the game, often two or three at a time.

The Knicks knew they needed to win Sunday to stay one game ahead of Milwaukee in the race for the East's last playoff spot even more than they needed to make a statement to the Bulls or see Anthony win some one-on-one individual duel with Rose.

But the Knicks accomplished all three things and -- in Anthony's estimation -- made a "big" statement heading into Tuesday's rematch in Chicago, or should the Knicks and Bulls meet in the first round of the playoffs. Which they might.

"This is one of the better teams in the whole league, but we feel that we can go out there and compete," Anthony insisted, ignoring that the Knicks are still without starters Amare Stoudemire and Jeremy Lin (perhaps for the season), while the Bulls are 14 wins better (43-29) and finally getting healthy.

Rose was playing for the first time since missing the Bulls' previous 12 games with a groin injury. And the Knicks didn''t make it easy on him. They knocked him around so often Bulls enforcer Carlos Boozer got a technical in the first quarter for purposely slamming a shoulder into Knicks center Tyson Chandler on his way to pick Rose up after one knockdown. In the second half, Rose ran off to the side of the court during another Bulls' possession, using his jersey to dab his face and check for blood after he got smacked in the mouth.

But Knicks interim coach Mike Woodson wanted the game this way. The Knicks have only 10 games left in their playoff push, and he said he told them in his pregame talk that the officials were probably going to let both teams play so, "I don't want to see any crying." And he got his wish.

"It was two teams that didn't want to lose, that was just banging and battling," Woodson said. "Unbelievable. They [the Knicks] just wouldn't give in."

The rough treatment didn't stop Rose and the Bulls from coming back at the Knicks, same as Anthony and the Knicks never stopped going back at them.

But had the Knicks lost this game after sprinting off to a 27-6 lead, they would've had to file it with the huge double-digit lead they blew against the Pacers a few games earlier, and wonder if they had the depth or wherewithal to close out wins against good teams. And they would've had to answer a lot of questions about their offense, which started strong, and then increasingly lapsed into isolation plays and too many long missed jumpers.

The Knicks had 11 a.ssists in the first quarter; only six the rest of the regulation plus overtime.

But the Bulls missed five free throws in the last 34 seconds of regulation, two of them by Rose to go with his four missed field goal attempts in the last 1:40 that helped keep the Knicks' alive.

Rose can surely play better than he did once he shakes the rust off.

And the Bulls' proud defense will note that Anthony will be hard-pressed to repeat what he did Sunday.

Still, for one game anyway, Anthony gave the Knicks a break from all the talk if they face either Chicago or Miami in the first-round playoffs, they'll be out in four straight games, same as Boston swept them last year.

Afterward, Anthony didn't try to downplay how important this game or his heroics were. He was asked where he'd rank his two game-deciding 3-pointers among the many big shots he''s hit in his career, and he said without hesitation, "One of the top."

Rose was in the house Sunday at the Garden. But Anthony made himself a home.

"The NBA's leading three-point shooter, Steve Novak, went 0-for-4 in the game. It was just the third time since the start of February that he failed to hit a three-pointer in a game. It was the first time since Dec. 31 -- when he wasn't in the rotation -- that he failed to hit a three in a game in which he attempted at least one."

"Melo's 43 points is his #Knicks career-high and the 20th 40-point performance of his career. The output was the most by a Knicks player since Jamal Crawford had 43 points against Toronto in a 103-99 win on Feb. 22, 2008. "

"#NBA Summer League in Las Vegas scheduled for July 13-22. #Knicks will be there as usual, with Jerome Jordan, Josh Harrellson and possibly Iman Shumpert among players on the roster, along with whomever is this year's second-round pick.

Carmelo Anthony has thrived in his new role as power forward, but Mike Woodson said that Amar'e Stoudemire will be reinserted into the starting lineup as soon as he is healthy enough to return.

There are encouraging signs that Stoudemire is making progress, including his participation in Tuesday's morning practice.

“I’ve got to think the doctors and Amar’e are on the same page in terms of where he is,” Woodson said before Tuesday night’s loss to the Bulls. “And when they tell me he’s ready to go, he’ll be right back in the starting lineup, playing the way I expect him to play.”

The Knicks are just 16-20 when Anthony and Stoudemire both play.

Stoudemire has been working with Knicks trainer Dave Hancock and the intensity of their sessions has increased.

“He’s still working out, taking it a day at a time,” Woodson said. “He looks pretty good. Again, I think it’s going to be up to Amar’e and the doctors when he decides to make his move.

“Until he tells me he’s ready to play, I got to continue to go to guys that are in uniform. When he tells me, I’m going to welcome him back with open arms big time.”

The Knicks are 11-4 since Mike Woodson replaced Mike D'Antoni.

Carmelo Anthony said that Woodson's record "speaks for itself" when asked if a compelling case is being made for him to remain as head coach next season.

“He’s doing a great job of ... due to circumstances of what happened with the coaching change,” Anthony said. “He’s responded well. I think at this point all he’s really concerned about is winning basketball games and he’s been doing that so that kinda speaks for itself.”

While Woodson has emerged as a legitimate candidate to remain, the Knicks may explore Phil Jackson and sources say they are also interested in John Calipari.

It was just days before Christmas 1997 and the Knicks were coming off a brutal loss in Cleveland and in Milwaukee for the second game of a back-to-back. They were 15-10 at the time, but maintained lofty expectations as perennial championship contenders.

It was in the final seconds of the first half in a game that was already getting away from the Knicks when Patrick Ewing reached for an alley-oop pass from Charlie Ward. Bucks center Andrew Lang nudged Ewing from behind and The Franchise fell awkwardly and smashed his right wrist -- and championship hopes for another year -- to smithereens.

Though Ewing remained with the team until 2000, and came back to play more big games, that was his last game as the cornerstone of the franchise. The Ewing Era ended on the floor of the Bradley Center.

Almost 15 years later, the Knicks are in Milwaukee looking to avoid another pivotal and, potentially, devastating loss in the Brew City.

"We have no choice," Carmelo Anthony said, "but to be ready for that game."

Recent history is not on their side. The Knicks have lost five straight games at the Bradley Center since a 120-112 win on March 10, 2009 that saw Larry Hughes score 39 points and Nate Robinson put up 32 off the bench.

Overall, the Knicks have lost nine of the last 11 games against Milwaukee.

These two teams have been on a tear over the past month. The Knicks are 11-4 since Mike Woodson replaced Mike D'Antoni as head coach. But the Bucks have rallied to stay right on the heels of the Knicks in the playoff race by winning 13 of their last 18 games. It all started with a 119-114 win over the Knicks in Milwaukee on March 9.

The Knicks won the teams' previous meeting, 89-80, at the Garden on March 26. Bucks guard Brandon Jennings, who had 15 points on 6 of 22 shooting, dismissed it as a bad shooting night. He wasn't about to credit the Knicks defense.

And after a blowout loss to the indomitable Oklahoma City Thunder, which saw Milwaukee fall behind early, Jennings pointed to the team's next game, against the Knicks, and said, "For sure, Wednesday, that's not going to happen."

Not quite Danny Granger's "winnable games" remark that was nailed to the bulletin board, but Jennings got the talking started early.

The Knicks, coming off a frustrating night, as well, after Tuesday's 98-86 loss in Chicago, can only focus internally right now. Both Melo and Tyson Chandler, the only two players who spoke to the media after the game, agreed this matchup with the Bucks is "a must-win."

"We have to approach it like it's a Game 7 in the playoffs," Chandler said.

"It's probably one of the biggest games of the season for us," Anthony said. "We've got to approach it like that."

Here's why:

• A Knicks win would not only open a two-game lead over the Bucks with eight games to play, it would even the season series at 2-2 and move a tiebreaker against the Bucks to whomever has the better Eastern Conference record. A win would give the Knicks a 23-18 conference record, compared to a 21-19 conference record for Milwaukee. The Knicks have seven more Eastern Conference games left on the schedule, while the Bucks have eight. A win would also move the Knicks within a half-game of the 76ers for the seventh spot.

• A Bucks win would put the teams in a record tie (29-29), but give the Bucks sole ownership of the eighth spot -- the final playoff berth in the East -- because they would also clinch the season series at 3 games to 1. The Knicks would also fall 1 1/2 games behind the Philadelphia 76ers for seventh.

What remains:

• The Bucks and 76ers face each other in Milwaukee in the second-to-last game of the regular season. That favors the Knicks as long as they stay within reach of Philadelphia because they could benefit no matter who wins and loses.

• After playing the Bucks, the Knicks have eight games remaining, with four against playoff-bound teams: Heat, Celtics, at Hawks and Clippers. But three of their final five games come against lottery bound teams: at Nets, at Cavs and the season finale, at Bobcats.

• After playing the Knicks, the Bucks have eight games remaining, with four against playoff-bound teams: Pacers, at Pacers, 76ers and at Celtics. The Knicks have the tougher opponents, but the Bucks opponents are each playing for seedings. The question is, if Boston already has the Atlantic Division wrapped up in that season finale, do they rest their main players?

If the Knicks win tonight, most of this will probably not matter.

"At this point, we have to understand what's at stake," Chandler said, "because ultimately we hold our own future in our own hands."

FIXINS

• Painful when the Novakaine wears off, isn't it? Steve Novak went 0-for-3 from three-point range on Tuesday night and was 0-for-7 from downtown in the home-and-home with the Bulls. It was the first time this season he has gone consecutive games without making at least one three-pointer. The Bulls played him well and gave him very few open looks. See if he can end his drought on the hometown rims in Milwaukee.

• Mobb Deep came up small on Tuesday, with just 18 points by the bench compared to Chicago's 33 bench points. J.R. Smith had 14 points, Novak hit two free throws and Bill Walker had a meaningless layup in the final seconds. Need much more than that against Milwaukee, which doesn't have a great bench, but does have Knick-killer Mike Dunleavy.

• Baron Davis had a good start in Chicago and seemed like he was in a nice rhythm, but his passing got erratic and you could see he was frustrating Woodson with his decisions on offense. He dove for the ball in the fourth quarter and came up showing some discomfort. Considering his back issues, it's something to monitor in the second game within a 20-hour span against a speedy, relentless Bucks backcourt.

• After facing the NBA's best offensive rebounding team -- the Bulls, No. 1 at 14 a game, had 18 on Tuesday -- the Knicks go up against a Bucks team that ranks No. 5, with 12.5 per game. The fundamentals are simple: box out. Player they most have to lock down: Ersan Ilyasova.

• Key matchup to watch: Iman Shumpert vs. Brandon Jennings. This is one where you wish both players were mic'd up, just to hear the trash talk.

• Remember: We'll have wall-to-wall coverage starting with Knicks Game Night, which starts at 7:30 p.m. on MSG Networks. Tip-off is at 8 p.m. and don't forget the Knicks PostGame Show afterward!
