I'm not saying that's a weak point (for the Heat) because (Mario) Chalmers has been great for Miami. He's won a championship there and he's a solid point guard," Felton said. "But I think that's one of the weaknesses of their team.
With comments like this I better not see his fat a.ss get torched by Chalmers.

Raymond Felton said if Tyson Chandler decides to rest for the remainder of the regular season for precautionary reasons, he’d be all for it.

Chandler, who has missed the past eight games with a bulging disk in his cervical spine, is expected to sit out again Friday night vs. Charlotte as the Knicks go for their season-high seventh straight win.

Chandler was close to playing vs. Boston on Tuesday but Monday’s practice didn’t go well and he felt symptoms again - neck stiffness and and spasms.

Felton believes the Knicks should consider not taking chances with Chandler, especially since the club is on a six-game winning streak without him. The move to Kenyon Martin as starting center and insertion of Pablo Prigioni in the starting backcourt with Felton has been golden.

“He’s fine,’’ Felton said. “We’re just making sure he’s going to be fine and we’re not going to miss him if he comes back too early and hurt his neck and he’s gone for the playoffs. If he stays out for the rest of the year, we’re fine with that. We got to make sure he’s OK (for the playoffs).’’

Mike Woodson said Thursday he doesn’t expect that to occur and prefers Chandler to return sooner. Chandler has not played since the loss in Denver March 13 when he collided with Nuggets big man Kenneth Faried.

The Knicks have survived well without Chandler, especially on the defensive end. The key has been the resurgence of Martin as a two-way energizer, as he has been healthy as a clam after sitting out the season’s first four months as a free agent.

Martin, like Amar’e Stoudemire, has microfracture surgeries on his resume.

“The legs feel good, they’ve felt good for a few years,’’ Martin said. “I haven’t had the wear and tear like a lot of guys around the league have had, especially on this team. I’m fairly fresh and the minutes I’m playing is cool.’’

Asked if he feels for Stoudemire, who underwent his second debridement surgery of the season on March 11th, Martin said, “I’ve been there. We’ve both been there. He’s had surgeries similar to mine. I’ve had two microfractures. I know the work you have to put in to come back. It’s uphill battle. I think he’s going to work to get it done.’’

Stoudemire had surgery March 11. The six-week timetable would have him back for Game 2 of the first-round series. However, Stoudemire, on a conference call Thursday to promote a documentary on his life, wouldn’t guarantee he’ll be back for the first round.

“If anyone can make it back, it’s Amar’e, I promise you that,’’ said Woodson, who finally spoke to Stoudemire Thursday about his rehab. Woodson appeared ticked Stoudemire had done a nationally televised interview Wednesday night, mentioning his rehab, without talking to the coach first.

--

Woodson, graduate of the University of Indiana, was forced to carry an orange around during Friday’s morning shootaround in Tarrytown after losing an NCAA tournament bet with Carmelo Anthony. Anthony’s Orangemen beat the Hoosiers last night in a Sweet 16 game.

“I’m going to toss it right after we’re through,’’ Woodson said.

MIAMI -- Tyson Chandler is a game-time decision for Tuesday night's showdown against the Miami Heat.

Chandler, who's averaging 10.7 points and 11 rebounds, has missed the past 10 games with a small bulging disk in his neck.

"We're going to find out after shootaround," Knicks coach Mike Woodson said at the American Airlines Arena. "He worked a little bit yesterday back home, was on the floor playing a little one-on-one, so we're going to test him again today and see what he's got. Then, he'll let us know.

"A lot of it is just how he feels and make sure there are no setbacks there after we're done shooting here. And if he tells me he's ready to go, then we're going to put him back in there."

If Chandler can go, Woodson plans to insert him back at starting center and likely use Kenyon Martin, who's replaced him in the first five, as the backup big man.

"You don't lose your starting job because of injuries," Woodson said. "He's a big part of the puzzle."

Another reason why Woodson envisions Martin off the bench is because of Carmelo Anthony's value at power forward.

"Based on longevity and in terms of how we've played with Melo at the 4, we've been pretty good," Woodson said.

While the Knicks are currently on an NBA-high eight-game winning streak, the Heat have a league-best 32-3 record at home.

MIAMI — Kenyon Martin was one Knick who found Miami’s decision Tuesday night to sit LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and starting point guard Mario Chalmers hard to believe.

When asked by The Post what he thought Heat president Pat Riley’s decision, Martin said, “Did they fine them for the other day?’’

Told no, Martin, shaking his head said, “Boy, oh boy.’’

“I guess they clinched the No. 1 spot,’’ Martin said.

Told no again, Martin said, “Well they think they have.’’

“It’s the NBA,’’ Martin added. “If they don’t want to play their guys, we’ll come out, if they’re playing or not, and come get this W — bottom line.’’

Coach Mike Woodson’s reaction to the Heat’s decision to rest their two stars was more diplomatic.

“Obviously they are hurt,’’ Woodson said. “I believe that.’’

Holding out James (strained hamstring) and Wade (sprained ankle) in San Antonio on Sunday over minor ailments was seen by some as a retaliatory move. The Spurs pulled a similar move in Miami earlier this season. The move last night also may have contained gamesmanship as the Knicks stood to gain more with a legitimate victory over Miami’s varsity. A victory and 3-1 season series win likely comes with an asterisk to many observers.

“We’re being very proactive and aggressive with the treatment and rehab, just to make sure we can contain their injuries where they are,’’ Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said. “You get into 70-plus games, where we are right now, we feel very fortunate. These are minor nicks and knacks that happen over the course of a long season.”

Spoelstra said James and Wade “made great progress’’ Monday but still “aren’t ready to go.’’ Spoelstra said James had “real tightness’’ in his hamstring.

* The Knicks hit 14 3-pointers on 27 attempts — marking a franchise record as it was the 44th game this season they had at least 10 3s.

* Carmelo Anthony scored 112 points in three games against the Heat this season. (He sat out the other AmericanAirlines Arena contest with a cut finger.

Anthony is the first player to score 30-plus points against the Heat in each game since James did it as a Cavalier in 2008-09.

* Center Tyson Chandler made his return from a 10-game absence last night and Martin came off the bench. The Martin-Anthony-Iman Shumpert-Pablo Prigioni-Raymond Felton starting lineup had a 8-0 record, but Woodson had no choice but to break it up.

The question was whether Martin or Prigioni headed to the bench. It’s Martin, who is experiencing a career renaissance in New York. “It’s Tyson’s job,’’ Martin said. “You’re not supposed to lose your job because of injury.I know that. I came back from microfracture and came back starting. I wasn’t expecting Tyson to lose his job because of injuries. All I did was hold the fort until he got right.”

Woodson called Chandler “rusty’’ after he played 23:56, scoring one point with three turnovers and two rebounds. He did make a key last-minute block on Chris Bosh. He may sit out tonight in Atlanta.

Shumpert didn't find closure stepping onto the court in Miami. He found it doing something more significant. More:

"It was even better stepping off the court without being hurt," he said.

The last time he played in Miami was Game 1 of the playoffs last spring. Shumpert tore the ACL in his left knee in the third quarter on what appeared to be a simple dribble move. He had to be carried off the court by teammates.

The rehabilitation process took nine months and he still isn't back to his previous form. Over the last few weeks his game has started to come around and the extensive work he's done on his three-point shot is starting to show. But the athleticism and explosion he had before the injury is not there yet.

Shumpert admitted he was "a little anxious" about being back at the place where his young career took a devastating setback. But after celebrating a win over the Heat, Shumpert (nine points, three rebounds, two a.ssists in 23 minutes) felt good about moving on.

And about walking off that court.

ATLANTA — The Knicks’ big-man situation took another turn for the worse last night amid their giddy 10-game winning streak.

Kenyon Martin came up with a sore right knee and was rested for the final 10 minutes of the Knicks’ 95-82 victory over the Hawks Wednesday night, while center Tyson Chandler had his second straight ineffective performance, clutching his neck area on a couple of occasions.

Afterward, Chandler wouldn’t say if he would play Friday against the Bucks, suggesting the big picture of being 100 percent for the playoffs is an issue that will be discussed.

Martin, meanwhile, also gave no a.ssurance he is ready for Friday either. Martin, who has been terrific filling in for Chandler, has had microfracture surgeries on both knees. Already expected out for the regular season are Amar’e Stoudemire, Kurt Thomas and Rasheed Wallace.

“It got the best of me today,’’ said Martin, who signed in late February after sitting out the season. “I’ll have a day off, get treatment and see how it goes. I got thrown into the fire, it’s like training camp and preseason. But I’m a warrior.’’

Chandler admitted he may not be mobile enough to help right now. He played 23:31, scored two points and had four rebounds. On Tuesday in Miami, he had one point in his return from a 10-game absence.

“It’s tough trying to look up at the ball for rebounds or lobs,’’ Chandler said. “It’s thrown my timing off. I’m just a little stiff right now. I’m not as mobile. I’m not there. I’m not myself moving around like I normally would.’’

Regarding his future, Chandler said, “I’ll talk to them. Ultimately I want to do what’s best for the team. Ultimately I want to be 100 percent for the playoffs.’’

Woodson said he doesn’t plan to rest guys before the playoffs unless they come to him.

“If we got key guys who demand that, I got to be open-minded,’’ he said. “If they don’t demand it, they’re going to play. Every game is important. We want to stay atop our division.’’

* Wallace had his left boot removed a few days ago, at the four-week mark of his foot surgery and he is also off crutches. By the timetable, Wallace could be back in a month and is traveling with the team.

ATLANTA — With Bernard King in the building, a laser-like Carmelo Anthony looked poised to match his idol’s back-to-back 50-point games.

Anthony roared to 36 points after three quarters last night, blazing a clear southern trail of greatness after blitzing the Heat for 50 on Tuesday night.

But Anthony would have to settle for an even 40. He became more creator in the fourth quarter with Atlanta doubling him as the Knicks finished off the Hawks with a 95-82 victory to the roars of a Philips Arena crowd filled with a lot of their fans.

The winning steak stands at 10 games — the longest since the 1993-94 season when the club made the NBA Finals. The Knicks (48-26) moved 22 games above .500 for the first time since 1997.

For Anthony, 90 points in two nights is plenty good enough and he even passed up a chance of returning in the fourth quarter earlier, telling coach Mike Woodson he needed more rest. Anthony is the first Knick to score 40-plus points in two straight games since Patrick Ewing in the 1989-90 season.

Anthony finished 17 of 27 from the field, hitting tough mid-range jumpers all over Hotlanta.

After the final buzzer, King said, “I was hoping he’d get to 51.’’

“I thought I had a chance for it,’’ Anthony said. “My teammates were encouraging me to try to get it done. That always a good feeling when you got your teammates cheering you on. I’ve had games where I had great rhythm, but to have two games in a row like this, I can’t recall that.’’

King, who lives in Atlanta and set his 50-50 combo in 1985, spoke with Anthony afterward.

“He said it was impressive,’’ Anthony said. “Impressive for him to watch and reminded it of him when he played.’’

With the Knicks playing off Anthony, J.R. Smith and Raymond Felton came on in the fourth quarter to deliver the knockout blows. Smith finished with 19 points and Felton had 10 of his 14 points in the fourth, with instructions from Anthony to drive the ball down the lane because the Hawks weren’t leaving him.

Anthony was 35 of 53 in the Miami-Atlanta road trip.

“Talking to him before the game, he said the torch is still lit, I got to go to work,’’ Kenyon Martin said. “I’ve seen it before. I’m not surprised.’’

Loud Melo chants rang out in Atlanta as Anthony shot free throws in the first half.

“The rhythm was still there,’’ Anthony said. “I just wanted to see if I still had it. It was just one of those nights once again.’’

Woodson pulled Anthony to start the fourth quarter. He didn’t return until 8:31 was left.

“If I didn’t sit him in the beginning of the fourth, it probably would’ve been [50],’’ Woodson said. “He was sucking wind and needed a blow. When I turned to him at the two-minute mark, he looked at me like I was crazy. I was going to bring him for [Steve] Novak, then Novak hit the 3. We went with Novak a couple of more minutes.’’

Anthony, who had a right knee draining procedure just 2 1/2 weeks ago, admitted rest was more vital than rolling two 50s.

“I was trying to get some rest,’’ Anthony said. “The schedule’s not been in our favor. He looked at me. I was like whatever you want me to do. He gave it a couple of more minutes.‘’

The Knicks led 47-40 at halftime behind Anthony’s 24 points. He had 27 at halftime in Miami on the way to 50. He finished 9 of 13 in the half last night.

“He’s playing well right now,’’ Woodson said, smiling. “He’s played well all year, but he’s back to playing really well right now.’’

Anthony was looking to distribute in the fourth quarter and fired a pass to Smith cross court. He drove to the hole and threw down a monster dunk that had the plethora of Knicks fans in the arena howling.

King’s record is safe — for now.

Xavier McDaniel played the 1991-92 season with the Knicks before his bitter departure to the rival Celtics. McDaniel said he believes if the Knicks had re-signed him and not let him leave for Boston, the Knicks wouldn’t be carrying a 40-year championship drought.

“Patrick, myself and Charles Oakley as the front line, nobody could match up with us,’’ said McDaniel, in the spotlight now that Wichita State, his alma-mater, is in the Final Four. “We would have won a championship with us. Charles Smith [McDaniel’s successor], he’s 6-10. I’ve always said it. He’s got to dunk the ball and the Knicks dropped the ball.’’

There’s a lot of he-said-he-said regarding McDaniel’s departure. McDaniel said Wednesday the Knicks told him to exercise the opt-out clause to his contract in midseason, promising him a long-term deal in the offseason. McDaniel said immediately his minutes dropped, as if trying to suppress his market value.

That summer, McDaniel accepted a 3-year deal with Boston after which former Knicks president Dave Checketts said the Knicks were double-crossed by agent David Falk, that they had “a gentleman’s agreement’’ to re-sign him after certain cap maneuverings. Checketts called it “shocking to us,’’ adding “We got kicked today.’’

“Dave Checketts lied,’’ McDaniel said. “They made me the scapegoat. They knew about the offer and could’ve made a deal with us. They wanted to get other guys.’’

#Knicks tonight celebrate their '73 championship team. Six Hall of Famers, yet the definition of 'team'.

"I was a rookie on that team and I was in awe," said Harthorne Wingo, a popular 15th man on the roster. "I swear, I'd be watching on the bench and WEEKS would go by before someone took a shot that wasn't completely open.

"I've never seen basketball like that before, or since."
