The NBA announced on Saturday that it had rescinded Carmelo Anthony's second technical foul from the New York Knicks' Friday night 110-106 loss to the Chicago Bulls.

The second foul led to Anthony's ejection with 6:45 remaining in the game and his team down by 15 points. The Knicks noted that the Bulls came out playing very physical and they weren't able to match that early on. The Bulls' defense took the Knicks out of their 3-point shooting and pick-and-roll games -- two of their offensive staples -- and that, coupled with some controversial foul calls, caused them some frustration later in the game.

Not only did Anthony get tossed in the fourth quarter, but so did teammate Tyson Chandler and coach Mike Woodson. After Saturday's practice at the Knicks' training facility, Woodson regretted what happened and discussed the situation with his team, stressing to them, "Just play."

"In the heat of the moment, we all get caught up in the moment," he said. "I've got to do better myself. I can't be getting thrown out of games, tossed, because I've got to be there for our team. That's what I meant last night by bad coaching. You can't do that."

Raymond Felton is determined to help Amar'e Stoudemire fit with what the Knicks have established through their first 26 games.

"We're going to figure it out," Felton said. "I know everybody trying to put this big knock that these guys can't play together, Melo and Amar'e can't play together. That's me, Jason, Pablo [Prigioni] -- that's our job to make sure that it does happen. He's got a great deal of talent. I know what he can do. What he can do is only going to help us."

Like Felton, Kidd is motivated to prove the critics wrong.

"He's part of this team," Kidd said. "He's going to help us be successful. That's the only way I look at it and I think that's the way the team looks at it.

"He has the ability to get us over the hump. For us as teammates, our job is to get him in the right spots so he is successful."


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Amar'e Stoudemire will do everything he can to blend in and adjust himself to the New York Knicks upon his return, according to a source.

The Knicks have started the season with one of the best records in basketball.

"He has to fit in," said the source. "There's no other option."

Opening-night jitters behind him, Amar’e Stoudemire vowed to be a different, better player Thursday night.

The Knicks’ $100 million power forward said he will be more cognizant of their defensive strategy and more aware of his place in the offense, saying he’ll “have a much better game’’ than in his six-point, one-rebound debut in Tuesday’s 105-100 loss to Portland.

Stoudemire, as if to prove his point, did extra shooting drills for 45 minutes after practice to prepare for Thursday night’s Garden rematch against the Spurs. The Knicks upset San Antonio in Alamo City on Nov. 15 during loftier times. The Knicks (21-10) have lost two straight, four of their last six, five of their last eight — the Knicks’ defense (ranked 18th in defensive efficiency after being in the top-five) is no longer something to brag about.

Stoudemire said the standing ovation when he checked into the game with 3:31 left in the first quarter to start his season threw him for an emotional loop and it took time to get his bearings.

“I was extremely surprised to be honest with you by the fans,’’ Stoudemire said. “It was so loud, I was very emotional. The game was going so fast for me out there. I never felt that feeling before. But now I got that first game under my belt. Going into game two, I’ll be more aware of what’s happening and will have a much better game.’’

Knicks coach Mike Woodson was disappointed with Stoudemire’s performance on defense. He was out of position on rotations and didn’t understand their new pick-and-roll defense that differs from last season’s game plan.

Stoudemire said he will become a better defender as the season goes on. Yesterday, he threw his old Suns and Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni under the bus, saying his former coaches never “taught defense.’’

It was not the first time Stoudemire laid blame on D’Antoni, but it was the most emphatic. It still doesn’t explain why Stoudemire has been a mediocre rebounder during his 10 years.

“Just having a defensive coach for the first time in my career is going to help,’’ Stoudemire said. “I’ve never been taught defense my whole career. To now have a coach who actually teaches defense and strategies and knows positioning and posture and how to guard different plays is going to be helpful and I’m taking it as a challenge and try to improve as a player.’’

During yesterday’s practice, Woodson came over to Stoudemire during a drill to instruct him about a bad angle and the posture he took. It seemed like basic fundamentals. During his debut, Woodson lectured Stoudemire for 30 seconds during a timeout.

“Today was a great practice for us to go over a lot defensive schemes,’’ Stoudemire said. “Being away from the game and not being able to practice with the guys is not great from a defensive standpoint. But going out there [at yesterday’s practice] and understanding strategy will help tremendously [tonight].’’

Stoudemire shot 3-of-8 against Portland. He missed his first five buckets in the first half but made his last three in the second half, two on powerhouse dunks off pick and rolls.

“Now I can envision where the shots are coming from,’’ he said. “Before [Tuesday’s] game, I didn’t know where the shots would come from. The repetition [of] shooting that shot in practice, now taking that into the game and trusting your practice, the game becomes a lot easier.’’

Woodson is being patient with Stoudemire on defense, but admitted the Knicks miss power forward Rasheed Wallace, a defensive specialist who is out until next week.

“You have to have certain rotations,’’ Woodson said. “He’s lacking in that area because he hasn’t been able to practice with us. We got to keep working and get him up to speed.’’

Woodson said he still will keep Stoudemire playing about 16 minutes a game — probably coming off the bench. Nevertheless, Woodson hinted because of the bad starts, he may make a starting-lineup change tonight.

Stoudemire said he thinks he will get to the point where he will be a starter, but qualified it by saying he’s fine to stay as a reserve if the club is winning. Tuesday was the first time he hadn’t started since Nov. 4, 2006. He had started his last 417 games.

“I’ve done it before,’’ Stoudemire said. “I came back from microfracture injury [in 2006] and I came off the bench for a few weeks, then I got back in rhythm and top shape and back to where I was before the injury. I expect to get back into top shape and where I was before. But again, if we’re playing well, I have no problem coming off the bench.’’

Perhaps tonight, Stoudemire’s highlight won’t be his ovation.

“I truly believe they appreciate it,’’ Stoudemire said of joining the moribund Knicks to start the reversal. “I took a chance and they took a chance on me and it’s turned out pretty good success, but we still have a ways to go. I’m still looking to achieve a championship. But so far so good. We’re playing extremely well. I want to make sure I bring a positive light to the team to bring us over the hump.’’

Five straight games with 20 points or more for the first time in his career. Pick-and-roll efficiency during a recent stretch even better than NBA leader Chris Paul. Gravity-defying dunks. And two game-winning shots. Already.

J.R. Smith, who's averaging career-highs in points (16.6) and rebounds (5.2) for the 22-10 Knicks, is starting to generate some serious votes to be an All-Star -- and Sixth Man of the Year -- for the first time in his career.

"Absolutely," Mike Woodson said on Thursday night. "That was the whole idea of coming into this season is putting him in that position as a guy coming off the bench that could lead the league and score a lot of points off the bench. ... I think he's starting to step up. He's being more patient about his play and he's trying to do it on both ends of the floor. That's what's so nice about it."

J.R. SmithKent Smith/NBAE via Getty ImagesSmith is averaging a career-high 16.6 points off the Knicks' bench this season.
Said Tyson Chandler, "He should. Just because he's the sixth man doesn't mean that he shouldn't get some looks, especially with the way our team is playing. A lot of our team's success comes from him."

Smith had a slightly different take.

"I want to be an All-Star for my team."

While Smith has always been able to score in isolation, excel in pick-and-rolls and defend, it was efficiency and consistency he was lacking. Now he has both, thanks to a life-changing experience in Los Angeles in the offseason. There, he worked with renowned trainer Idan Ravin and, for the first time, played ball against the best of the best -- Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin -- every day.

Through daily chats with Ravin, who's known for his motivational tactics, Smith began to understand more of the importance of focus and image, which encouraged him to cut back on his partying. Ravin told Smith he never wanted to hear someone else call him an "underachiever."

"That was kind of the point I made to him that I don't ever want to hear that said about him," Ravin told ESPNNewYork.com, "because I think he could do so many things so amazing. It's ultimately like a point in your life when you just kind of ask yourself, 'How much does it really mean to me?' That's it. And I think sometimes, some people have that realization early in their career, some have it later and some never have it."

Smith was also aided by facing Anthony, Durant and Griffin on a regular basis. As a result, Ravin says he saw "an incredibly focused, diligent hard worker." Now, Smith appears to have the right mindset, which others have noticed.

"J.R.'s been playing extremely well the past 10 to 15 games. He seems locked in, focused," Anthony said. "I've been with J.R. for seven and a half, eight years. I've seen the potential. He's getting better and better."

That's largely due to the way Smith is playing -- quick and smart.

"We emphasized a lot of efficiency," Ravin said. "The idea that you're playing with a lot of guys that can put the ball in the basket really quickly, so if you're going to do something, decide it in two seconds and if not, give up the ball."

Ravin also credited Woodson, Glen Grunwald and Allan Houston for being in Smith's corner.

"They believe in them," Ravin said.

"I truly believe J.R. Smith is an Eastern Conference All-Star," he said. "He's a great shooter, he's a great athlete, he can put the ball on the floor, he can defend, he can win. He can do everything. I've told him this for a long time."

And now, it's finally coming together.
