The Knicks' roster is way too old. The players are too injury prone. The pieces don't fit well together.

Those were common perceptions of this Knicks team coming into the season.

So what do the 'Bockers have to say to the naysayers after their surprising 4-0 start?

"Thank you," Ray Felton said with a wide smile after New York's win over Dallas on Friday. "That's my message: Just thank you. Thank you for the extra motivation."

Felton handed out nine a.ssists in the Knicks' 104-94 win over the Mavericks. He added eight points, two steals and four rebounds; the Knicks outscored the Mavericks by 14 when Felton was on the floor.

"He was tremendous," Jason Kidd said of Felton.

Like Felton, Carmelo Anthony knew all about the naysayers heading into the season. He also knows there's a large segment of NBA fans out there who think it can't last.

But that doesn't bother him. He's said again and again that outside noise won't disrupt his focus this season.

"We ain’t really worrying about the naysayers," Anthony said after scoring 31 points on Friday. "We’re just focused on Orlando at this point. These four games are over with and we move on. Take it one game at a time. I’ve been saying that since training camp and I’m going to continue saying that."

The Knicks are 4-0 for the first time since the 1993-94 season, when they reached the NBA Finals.

SMITH IS SUPER SUB: J.R. Smith had another strong game for the Knicks off the bench on Friday. He had 22 points on 8-for-16 shooting, eclipsing the 20-point mark for the second time this season.

Smith is doing a little bit of everything early in the season -- scoring 17.5 points per game, grabbing five rebounds, handing out 3.3 a.ssists and getting 2.5 steals a night.

On Friday, he had nine points in a pivotal stretch in the third quarter, helping the Knicks maintain a lead after Anthony went to the bench with four fouls.

"We need that from J.R., regardless of who he comes in for," Anthony said. "We need that offensive power that he has."

KNICKS RAISE MONEY FOR SANDY: The MSG Network and Garden of Dreams Foundation raised close to $200,000 in aid for those affected by Hurricane Sandy during a telethon on Friday night. Net proceeds from the fundraiser will go to the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City and the American Red Cross, among other disaster relief organizations.

Also, the Knicks honored Jon Candelaria of New York, and Dr. Pradeep Mally, Gail Geraghty and Erica Chong of NYU Langone Medical Center with this month's Sweetwater Clifton "City Spirit" award for their heroic efforts during Hurricane Sandy. The hospital workers helped carry infants to safety after the medical center lost power during the storm and Candelaria rescued a taxi driver who was stuck in a cab that was nearly submerged by water.

By Frank Isola

The newish team in town ran a better, more compelling preseason campaign. But the best thing to come out of Brooklyn this NBA season has been Carmelo Anthony.

The Knicks woke up on Thursday in first place and as the league’s only undefeated team. Yes, a 3-0 start doesn’t mean the franchise should begin planning a parade for late June. Also, when — if — Amar’e Stoudemire is back at full strength, Mike Woodson will have to soothe egos and take a long, hard look at, dare we say it, making Amar’e the highest-paid sixth man in history.

Trouble could arrive as early as the next loss because if we’ve learned anything about the Knicks the last 10 years, it’s that controversy is a way of life at the World’s Most Famous Arena.

Carmelo saw it firsthand the moment he arrived on the scene as his presence nudged Amar’e to the background. He was blamed for Mike D’Antoni leaving and Jeremy Lin not coming back. I vaguely seem to recall Patrick Ewing getting the same grief. Some of it unjustified, some of it not (see: Don Nelson).

So if you are going to accuse Anthony of having blood on his hands, we should at least give him his due for what already looks to be the Knicks’ most complete team since they reached the Eastern Conference finals in 2000.

Anthony leads the team in scoring, rebounding and swan dives into the crowd for loose balls. His fitness is better, and his attitude about the team and his place in the league is right on.

“It’s just me knowing what I want: I want to win,” Anthony said Thursday. “My mental focus right now is 100%. I haven’t been this focused in a long time as far as just really able to just focus in on basketball and nothing else. So right now, I think that’s the key ingredient right now.”

Management has given Anthony everything he needs to succeed: A coach to play to his strength and a group of veteran teammates that he listens to and respects.

D’Antoni never agreed with Garden chairman James Dolan’s decision to acquire Anthony and it showed. D’Antoni had a system that worked like clockwork in Phoenix and wasn’t about to change it even though Anthony functions better in the post. Once Lin had success with the ball in his hands, D’Antoni felt empowered to stick to his method.

Woodson, though, followed the same script Jeff Van Gundy used when he replaced Nelson. He kept Ewing happy by getting him the ball where he liked it. That played to the team’s strength. The same is true of Woodson and Anthony, who is one of the league’s most versatile scorers.

He does his best work in the post, where his quickness and mid-range game can be lethal. An underrated feature of Anthony’s game is that he isn’t afraid of contact and is adept at getting to the foul line.

“It’s great,” Woodson said. “But I’m trying to get Melo to do everything. I don’t want him to be perceived as a scorer.”

The reality is that Anthony is a scorer who has yet to win big in the NBA. That’s why the front office took a gamble and acquired veteran players who provide leadership and a winning DNA. Anthony is constantly picking Jason Kidd’s brain and the two are already joined at the hip. Dirk Nowitzki got to an NBA Finals without Kidd but didn’t win one until he arrived.

“I want him to fulfill whatever he thinks his potential is and that’s to be one of the best in this league,” Kidd said of Anthony.

Kidd’s former team, the Dallas Mavericks, is in town Friday night for the first time since Feb. 19, which was at the height of Linsanity. In a nationally televised game, Lin turned in a brilliant performance, scoring 28 points with 14 a.ssists during a Knicks victory.

Anthony was injured that day and didn’t play, but he was very much part of the conversation. “Can he fit in with Jeremy Lin?” and “Are the Knicks better without Melo?” were questions being asked. That was only nine months ago, but it seems like a lifetime.

Today, the Knicks are undefeated and now the only question being asked is, “Where would they be without Carmelo Anthony?”

Could there be anything more throwback than this: #Knicks are the NBA's No. 1 defensive team. More: #fb
After four games, the team ranks No. 1 in two key defensive categories: Opponent scoring (87.5 points per game against) and Opponent shooting (40.7% FG against).

They are also tied for third in forcing turnovers, at 18.0 per game by their opponents and third in steals at 10.25 per game.

Mike Woodson pointed out -- with pride -- after Friday's win over the Mavericks, who scored 57 points in the first half but finished with 94 points for the game, that his team has held teams under 40 points in the second half of all four games so far this season.

Another impressive statistic involves fourth quarter defense by the Knicks. In the four games so far, the Knicks have held opponents to just 18.75 points per game in the final quarter. The most a team has scored on them in the final quarter is 21, by the Miami Heat in the season opener. The lowest is 16, by the Mavs.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — J.R. Smith, wearing a band-aid on his cheek, took a shot at Jerryd Bayless’ lack of size after the Memphis guard flipped his lid following a second-quarter dust up between the two last night.

Bayless and Smith got entangled and Smith raised his left elbow, clocking Bayless in the upper chest. The 6-foot-2 Bayless shoved Smith in the face and then tried to get after the Knicks guard. A livid Bayless had to be restrained by teammates while Smith backpedaled away, laughing at the scene.

“Other than me trying to get the ball, I don’t know what he could’ve been mad at,’’ Smith said after the Knicks’ 105-95 loss to the Grizzlies, their first defeat of the season. “Some small guards have a little man’s complex. They got to work that out.’’

Later in the game, Smith, who had a relatively quiet night with nine points, got called on a flagrant foul on Tony Allen after bashing his arm as he went up for a dunk attempt. It looked like a normal hard foul as Smith was trying to block the shot.

The series of incidents came one day after Smith confessed he had toned down his lifestyle.

“I was extremely shocked,’’ Smith said. “I definitely didn’t think it was a flagrant. They said I wound up and swung at him. I definitely was going for the ball. They didn’t see it that way. Hopefully they’ll take a review on it.’’

Smith received the cut in the fourth quarter on an accidental elbow from Allen.

***

Tim Duncan looked at the box score Thursday night in the Spurs dressing room and saw Carmelo Anthony’s scoring line of nine points on 3-of-12 shooting.

Anthony had been averaging a league-leading 26.8 points during the Knicks’ 5-0 start before Thursday’s 104-100 victory in San Antonio.

“You a.ssume we win that game,’’ Duncan said.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich’s plan was to take the ball out of Anthony’s hands, throw double and triple teams his way when he moved to the basket and let other Knicks beat them. They did just that in a statement win. The new Knicks — Raymond Felton, Jason Kidd and J.R. Smith — beat the Spurs with Anthony playing the facilitating role.

Anthony also was held to 20 points last night, but this time, the Knicks couldn’t pull it out, falling to 6-1 after a 105-95 loss to the Grizzlies.

Against the Spurs, however, Anthony played a balanced game. He ripped down a season-high 12 boards and had three a.ssists, exhibiting his new grinding defensive game. He had a hockey a.ssist on Smith’s go-ahead 3-pointer late in the fourth.

“A lot of people may say he had a bad game — no he had a great game, facing double and triple teams,’’ Felton said Thursday night.

Last night, perhaps because it was the second game of a back-to-back set, Anthony wasn’t a force on the glass, grabbing just three rebounds.

Nevertheless, the win over the Spurs was a positive sign for the Knicks. If the game plan to stop Anthony at all costs doesn’t work, then what strategy will work against the 6-1 Knicks?

“Yes, we made a decision to take Carmelo out of the game,’’ San Antonio guard Manu Ginobili said. “But the Knicks were just amazing shooting as they have been all season long.We’re a pretty good 3-point shooting team and we shot 27 percent and they shot 44 percent.’’

Stephen Jackson, who took turns harassing Anthony into his lousy shooting night, had the best analysis on how the Knicks can win despite Anthony scoring nine points, by far his season low.

“I think last year Melo would have forced a lot of shots,’’ Jackson said. “This year he’s trusting his teammates and it’s shown out there, especially tonight. It’s amazing how they went from two guys shooting all the balls to a team that everybody has confidence in everybody else.’’

***

Amar’e Stoudemire turned 30 yesterday, making it seven players on the Knicks’ roster at least 30 years old. The rehabbing Stoudemire spent his birthday having lunch with Memphis mayor A.C. Wharton, discussing the possibility of opening a school in the depressed city.

HOUSTON -- Carmelo Anthony had several reasons to be frustrated on Friday night.

His Knicks had just lost by 28 points to the Rockets. They gave up a season high 131 points in the process.

And they'd lost two regular-season games in a row for the first time since mid-March.

But Anthony was also frustrated for another reason: He felt the referees failed to blow the whistle when he was fouled on Friday.

"It is frustrating. It gets frustrating out there," Anthony said after scoring a game-high 37 points against Houston. "You do your best to try and ... get fouled, go to the hole, create something; it don’t happen. That gets frustrating. And then you go down to the other end of the court and [get called for a foul]. That’s always the frustration when that sets in."

Frustration set in for Anthony in the third quarter against Houston.

Melo felt he got hit by Chandler Parsons on a jumper midway through the third. He had his back turned to the ball as he was running down the court, yelling at the nearest official.

Rockets forward Patrick Patterson was also racing down the floor. He snuck behind Melo, darted to the rim, received an outlet and converted an uncontested dunk.

Anthony's back was to the play the entire time. He was whistled for a technical for arguing, his NBA-leading fifth of the season.

Anthony said he didn't see Patterson behind him.

"At that point of the game, I was just a little frustrated. It happens," he said.

The non-whistle is nothing new for Anthony. He didn't get a couple of key calls late in the Knicks' loss to Dallas on Wednesday.

Neither coach Mike Woodson nor Anthony complained about the non-calls after the Mavs loss.

But Anthony was visibly annoyed after the Houston game.

"Maybe I got to do a better job of not getting so frustrated and just accept the fact that this is the way it’s going to be," he said.

Anthony shot just two free throws against Houston, about four fewer than his average. Overall, the Knicks shot 14 free throws to the Rockets' 28. Houston guard James Harden went 16-for-16 from the line.

"That’s always the frustrating part. You look at the stat sheet and you see guys 16, 17 free throws, and you look at our stats and it’s two free throws, three free throws and things like that," Anthony said. "We’re trying to figure out what guys are doing differently that we’re not doing."

For the record, Anthony is tied for seventh in the NBA with 6.3 free throw attempts per game.

Entering play this week, Anthony was getting fouled on 14 percent of his attempts. That rate is consistent with what we've seen in the past few years. He went to the line on 12.8 percent of his shot attempts last season, 14 percent in 2010-11 and 14.5 percent in 2009-10.
