UNCASVILLE, Conn.— Andrea Bargnani is hurt again, but his absence didn’t slow the Knicks’ triangle offense. The impact of Bargnani’s buddy, new point guard Jose Calderon, was finally felt in a big way Saturday night at Mohegan Sun Arena.

Calderon put on a show in the first half, scoring seven straight points — all from long range — to ignite the Knicks after a slow start in a 96-80 preseason victory over the Celtics to even their record at 1-1.

Calderon was 4-of-8 in 16 minutes of the first half, scoring all nine of his points to go with four rebounds. Calderon only played the first few minutes of the second half and finished with zero turnovers and was a plus-11. After committing 28 turnovers in their hellish opener Wednesday in Hartford, the Knicks had just 18 Saturday.

Displaying what Phil Jackson envisioned when he traded for Calderon in late June, the Spaniard was throwing crisp outlet passes and getting the fans out of their seats with one wonderful pump fake that had Brandon Bass of the Celtics flying into the air. Calderon then calmly sank the jumper with Bass out of the play.

Before the game, Calderon was asked if he could be the difference-maker following last season’s misery now that alleged weak link Raymond Felton plies his trade in Dallas.

“I don’t know if it’s going to be because of me,’’ Calderon said. “I’m trying to do my best for this team to do the best we can to get as far as we can go. It’s not only one thing [from last year].’’

Carmelo Anthony scored 16 points and got hot during the second quarter when the Knicks went on a 13-2 run. Anthony had 10 points by halftime, hitting two straight 3-pointers. He also whipped a bullet pass to Quincy Acy on a fast break for an easy dunk as the Knicks took a 53-47 halftime lead.

“We haven’t broken the tip of the iceberg with this offense for me,” Anthony said. “It was day and night from the first game to tonight.”

The Knicks didn’t have Bargnani, who missed the game with a hamstring strain, and their offense actually looked better. Bargnani had started the opener, but coach Derek Fisher went with Quincy Acy over Amar’e Stoudemire on Saturday.

Calderon believes he can be the Italian’s healer this season. Calderon said he envisions the 7-foot Italian. his teammate in Toronto, having his career year in 2014-15.

Bargnani had started at power forward in the preseason opener, his first game action since late January when he suffered a season-ending torn elbow ligament.

“If you’re talented, know how to play basketball, I think this system will find the right spots for him,’’ Calderon said. “He’ll be able to be more comfortable and able to play hopefully the best basketball of his career.’’

Knicks coach Derek Fisher doesn’t expect Bargnani, who was injured in Friday’s practice, to miss much time.

“A little bit of tightness in the hamstring,’’ Fisher said. “Practice was pretty intense. I think waking up this morning a little tightness in the hamstring. Our medical staff thought it would be good to get him extra day’s rest.’’

Calderon and Bargnani played nearly seven seasons together with the Raptors

“We talk all the time, text each other all the time,’’ Calderon said. “When you play with a guy seven years, he’s more than a teammate. You start getting closer. He was one of first to text me [after the Knicks trade], ‘Hey amigo, happy for you to be with me here again.’ ’’

As a former first overall pick, Bargani has been under heavy scrutiny since his rookie year.

“It doesn’t matter what they say,’’ Calderon said. “It’s what you say about yourself.’’

Calderon was asked if Bargnani is similar in style to Dirk Nowitzki, his Dallas running mate.

“Similar moves, kind of,’’ Calderon said. “Both can shoot from high up there. They’re always open … and shoot from way out. Tough to contest those shots.’’

UNCASVILLE, Conn. — Iman Shumpert, after missing the first preseason game with a hamstring injury, made his debut Saturday and did so in the starting lineup at shooting guard over J.R. Smith.

Oh, the shooting guard battle is on. Shumpert was a spark on defense and finished with six points in 15 minutes with two a.ssists.

But Smith caught fire, making a lot of tough jumpers, finishing with 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting.

Shumpert had his best moments coming off the bench late last season while Smith excelled in the starting lineup. Tim Hardaway Jr. started at shooting guard to open the second half.

“It’s tough to use that as a way to gauge what’s best for this team with a new way of playing offense and defense but for sure this is what preseason is about,’’ coach Derek Fisher said before the game. “I think Shumpert can be in either situation because he’s a hard worker with a great attitude.’

Backup center Jason Smith was back with the team after missing the opener and last two practices as his wife gave birth to a girl on Thursday. Smith said he wasn’t expecting to play, however.

“We had agreement to have a couple of practices under my belt,’’ Smith said. “Being away from team, make sure it’s far to the guys to miss practice and expect to play in the game.’’

Point guard Pablo Prigioni was given the night off as a “rest’’ day while Shane Larkin logged 26 minutes (two turnovers).

Former Knicks center Tyson Chandler figured his new club in Dallas had little chance of signing Carmelo Anthony during July’s free agency, but gave his pitch anyway. It wasn’t a heavy one.

Chandler had enough conversations with Anthony as teammates for three seasons to realize Anthony wasn’t leaving New York. Anthony met with Dallas officials July 2 and Chandler followed it up with a phone call.

“It wasn’t strong,” Chandler told the Washington Post of his sales pitch. “I didn’t ever think he was coming. I didn’t think Carmelo was ever leaving New York. I talked to him because it wouldn’t be right if I didn’t. But I never thought he was going anywhere. I thought if anywhere he was going it was to the Lakers. But the Lakers didn’t have a strong enough roster to tempt him.”

UNCASVILLE, Conn. -- Carmelo Anthony says he will have to adapt his offensive approach in order to be successful in the triangle.

"It's an adjustment," Anthony said, after the Knicks' preseason win over the Celtics on Saturday. "it's an adjustment because I'm used to taking my time and seeing where the defense is coming from. And even now, it's a medium that you've got to play with. Sometimes you can hold it a little, sometimes you don't have it, (you have to) get it out quickly. So it's an adjustment for me."

Based on what he did Saturday, he seems to be adjusting well. Anthony had 16 points on 7-for-14 shooting. He also found his teammates for several quality shot attempts. He ended up with one a.ssist, but coach Derek Fisher was happy with the way the Knicks' $124 million man looked for his teammates.

"His understanding is continuing to grow in terms of how to find shots for himself, (and) how to create opportunities to create shots for his teammates," Fisher said.

Anthony thrived in isolation the past two seasons under former coach Mike Woodson, with the offense flowing primarily through him. He was among the league leaders in plays run in isolation the past two years.

This year is different, though.

In the triangle Anthony is expected to move the ball continually, in an attempt to find an open shot. He passed on a consistent basis Saturday, and after the game talked about the new approach that's necessary.

"If you don't have nothing in a second, second and a half, the ball is out," Anthony said. "There's no holding, there's a lot of ball movement. So your [teammates] have got to be ready for it."

Fisher seems pleased with Anthony's progress thus far. He also complimented Anthony's effort on the defensive end against the Celtics.

"His defensive activity on the weak side was really great tonight," Fisher said. "That's something we've talked about -- not leaving the two or three guys (defending) the pick-and-roll to do all the work. The players on the weak side have to join the party and come play defense. Tonight Carmelo had several of those plays."

NEW YORK -- Knicks president Phil Jackson believes owner James Dolan has been "forced to meddle" in basketball decisions in the past. But Jackson said he has received a.ssurances from Dolan that it won't happen again as long as he's running the team.

Jackson said Sunday that he spoke to Dolan about having full autonomy to make basketball decisions before he accepted the job as Knicks president.

"I was point blank and honest with him and said, 'If I walk into your office or call you up on the telephone and tell you that I want to trade X player who's an All-Star or Y player who's the fans' favorite, if I think it's the right move, I want you to feel confident that I can do this, will you give me the liberty to do this?' And he said yes, and that's really the key," Jackson said while speaking at The New Yorker Festival in Manhattan.

Jackson's authority extended to the team's decision to re-sign Carmelo Anthony, according to the team president. Dolan told Jackson before he took the job in March that if Jackson didn't feel signing Anthony was the "right direction to go, then you don't have to sign him."

"I had that liberty to make that choice and needed to have that to come and do the job the right way," said Jackson, who inked a five-year, $60 million deal to run the Knicks.

Jackson ultimately re-signed Anthony to a five-year, $124 million contract.

"He has just touched the surface of his greatness, and I think we have a guy that has a lot more to offer," Jackson said of the 30-year-old Anthony.

Dolan has a strong relationship with Anthony, and many observers wondered whether he would strong-arm Jackson during negotiations with Anthony over the summer.

Dolan has had a history of interfering with decisions made by his basketball executives. One of the most oft-cited instances came in 2011, when he orchestrated the team's trade for Anthony over the wishes of then-GM Donnie Walsh. Dolan also fired then-GM Glen Grunwald days before the past season's training camp. Grunwald built a team that won 54 games in the regular season and snapped the franchise's 13-year streak without a playoff series win.

Jackson addressed Dolan's meddling with basketball decisions Sunday.

"He has this tremendous competitive drive and wants to really do well," Jackson said. "In the process, he's gotten involved in basketball simply because things have happened in this organization that have irritated him.

"Some of the ways that the teams have been handled, some of the decisions that have been made on players that were brought in and were costly to the organization, hampered and handcuffed them to making changes. So he felt obliged and obligated to get involved in it so he could correct the inadequacies or errant direction in which the organization was going. ... So he's been involved in it on some level, and as a result there are some things that have happened where he's looked like he's meddled. And I think he had to meddle at some point. He was almost forced to meddle in some situations. That word meddle might be a little bit harsh to even use."

Dolan has said that he isn't as involved with the team now that Jackson has taken over.

He instead has chosen to focus on working with his blues band, JD and the Straight Shot.

"Hopefully, I can allow him to [play music] and relieve him of many of the pressure that's about basketball," Jackson said. "And we can go forward, and he can enjoy what he's doing in the musical world."

Carmelo Anthony has established himself as one of the top scorers in the NBA.

But Phil Jackson believes he can do more.

Jackson on Sunday said Anthony "has just touched the surface of his greatness and I think we have a guy that has a lot more to offer."

Jackson, speaking at the New Yorker festival in Manhattan on Sunday, added that the 30-year old Antony "is still young enough to have some great years ahead of him."

Jackson was one of the biggest reasons that Anthony returned to New York over the summer. He turned down other max contract offers to sign a five-year, $124 million deal with the Knicks.

Anthony took $5 million less than the maximum contact the Knicks could offer.

Jackson said it will give the Knicks short-term flexibility before the expected salary cap increase in two years resulting from the new TV deal.

"Carmelo took less money -- even though it seems rather minuscule -- but it's enough for us to have flexibility in the coming year and then as the years go on the pie's going to get bigger, things will happen," Jackson told New Yorker moderator Ben McGrath.

Jackson also talked on Sunday about his expectations for the Knicks this season.

"Last year this team didn't make the playoffs. The year before they won a playoff series and they lost to Indiana. Can they jump and go to, say, the finals of the Eastern Conference? That would be a tremendous year for us," Jackson said. "To get to the Finals, I think would be unexpected. So we have to progress and I think understand the progression.

"First of all, we learn how to play together, then we learn how to bond together, then we learn how to do the things that are difficult in playoff matches together before we can be just vaulted into a championship level team. So we still have some growth to go. I'm not throwing anything out, I'm hopeful. We all are. The big key is making it to the playoffs and then what happens?"

Phil Jackson took a playful shot at Knicks super fan Spike Lee on Sunday.

Lee is making a film for MSG Network about Jackson's triangle offense. Jackson was asked about Lee during a talk at the New Yorker Festival in Manhattan on Sunday evening.

"As most people know, Spike is an avid Knick fan that doesn't know anything about basketball," Jackson said, drawing laughs from the crowd. "He knows how someone makes a shake and bake move and might dazzle the fans and make a shot."

Jackson shared some of his triangle expertise with Lee. The documentary airs next Friday night on MSG.

Phil says Calderon, Dalmert will "probably" start: Jackson said Jose Calderon and Sam Dalembert will probably start at point guard and center, respectively. Derek Fisher has said that only Carmelo Anthony has a spot in the starting lineup at this point. He has been observing different lineups in training camp and the preseason.
Assuming Fisher is on board with Jackson's idea of starting Calderon and Dalembert, that leaves question marks at shooting guard and power forward.

Tim Hardaway Jr., J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert are competing for minutes at shooting guard. Andrea Bargnani, Amar'e Stoudemire and others are competing for minutes at power forward.

Knicks using monitors to gauge fatigue: Jackson said the Knicks are all using monitors under their jerseys in practices and games that are used to gauge a player's fatigue.

Jackson touched on a few other topics on Sunday with New Yorker writer Ben McGrath:

On whether he would advise Carmelo Anthony to follow his lead and experiment with LSD. “No, it’s not one of the prerequisites,” he joked.

On what Jim Dolan is really like: "Jim is a person that has a life that I think was kind of foisted on him as a corporate head. I think that's not what he started out wanting to be in life. So he's running a company that he's completely invested or charged to do by his father. I think that's great that he's done whatever the family's desires or wishes are for him."

On Lakers executive Jim Buss: “Jimmy Buss is a person that’s vaulted into position through his inheritance, his father’s position,” Jackson said. “I think he’s coming to terms with one of the realities of this job. That’s all I can offer.”

On the triangle: “I don’t put much emphasis in the name. It’s a system of how to play. It’s organized. It’s not rocket science.’’

On Donald Sterling: "He's Donald Duck, a weird duck."

Jackson also revealed that, after meeting with Anthony in Los Angeles during free agency, he and Derek Fisher flew to Manhattan, Kan., to visit ex-Bulls a.ssistant Tex Winter, one of the architects of the triangle offense.

On his visit to MSG in 2013 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Knicks' last title team: "“Hopefully we won’t have to wait many more years before we have another celebration here.”

The Garden gets to welcome the New York version of the triangle and welcome back Carmelo Anthony for the first time Monday night when the Knicks play their Garden preseason opener.

After splitting two games against the Celtics in Connecticut, the Knicks play a back-to-back: Monday against the Raptors and Tuesday against the Sixers in Syracuse.

“I’m looking forward to it,’’ Anthony said of playing the Garden for the first time since re-signing with the Knicks for 5 years. “I haven’t played a preseason game at the Garden in a long time due to the renovations. I’m looking forward getting there Monday. It’s sad. It’s a back to-back because then we got Syracuse Tuesday.”

Expect Anthony to be serenaded with a standing ovation in both places. He is enthused about showing off the triangle, which looked a lot better Saturday when the Knicks beat the Celtics, 96-80. It’s also Derek Fisher’s first game on the Garden sidelines.

“It’s not just for me – to get that feeling again and see the things we’ve been working on at training camp,’’ Anthony said. “They’ve read about it and seen snippets but they see it firsthand now.’’

Anthony scored 16 points on Saturday as the Knicks looked more relaxed in the triangle, reducing their turnovers from 28 in the preseason opener to 18.

“We haven’t broken the tip of the iceberg as far as the offense goes for me,’’ Anthony said. “I’m still trying to see where the spots are on the court and get the timing down. That’s going take time, but [Saturday] everyone felt a little more comfortable with the system. We’ll get better day by day.

“After the first game we saw opportunities when they try to double team within the triangle and some things were open we didn’t get to,’’ Anthony said. “But [Saturday] we had a chance get a chance to do that.’’

Fisher said two straight practice sessions of three hours each Thursday and Friday following Wednesday’s 20-point debacle helped the cause.

“Unfortunately for them the last couple of days of practice helped quite a bit,’’ Fisher said. “We got a lot of work done the last two days.’’

Anthony said he’s still “adjusting’’ to the new sets, which require constant cutting and passes instead of isolation. Anthony has moved the ball well, though sometimes teammates are not expecting the pass, perhaps because of his history.

“They don’t know where the ball is coming from,’’ Anthony said. “You got to be alert. If you don’t have something in 1 1/2 seconds, the ball is out. No holding. It’s a lot of ball movement — got to be ready for it.

“It’s much better than where was the first day from now.’’

Fisher also liked Anthony’s defense Saturday.

“His understanding is continuing to grow how to find shots for himself and put himself in position to create opportunities for teammates,’’ Fisher said. “But his weak-side activity on defense was really great. Two guys on the weak side have to join the party and help. Carmelo had several of those play using his voice and putting his body in the right spots.

Tim Hardaway Jr. feels he is ahead of his teammates in learning the triangle because he played it during the Knicks summer league in Las Vegas. He’s actually been helping the veterans with the offense.

Hardaway, a first-team All-Rookie choice last season, played summer league in July and participated later that month with the Select Team practicing against Team USA before the World Cup..

“I see more confidence,’’ Anthony said of Hardaway. “That says a lot because Tim has a lot of confidence. He believes in himself a lot more. I need Tim’s confidence to be sky-high.’’

Amar’e Stoudemire wasn’t insulted Quincy Acy started ahead of him Saturday at power forward as Andrea Bargnani sat out.

“He’s just trying to find lineups,’’ Stoudemire said. “I’m playing the 4, 5, and perimeter.’’

Stoudemire instead started the second half at center.

He has been the bearded wonder of preseason, and “Ace’’ may be the place to find your starting Knicks power forward.

In a bizarre turn of events, Quincy Acy, who may have the NBA’s longest beard, and one wilder than James Harden’s, has emerged as the Knicks’ leading candidate at power forward. It is seemingly the lone position battle still remaining.

That is a testament to Acy’s defensive fortitude and vibrant playing style that coincides with new coach Derek Fisher’s vision of what he wants out of his starting lineup. It also helps Acy’s cause that Andrea Bargnani’s battling a sore hamstring.

“No I didn’t plan on coming here to start,’’ Acy told The Post with a chuckle. “I planned on coming here and playing hard to earn minutes. I guess I impressed enough with my defense to earn a spot. I don’t know what coach got going if I’m starting or coming off the bench or not playing, but I’ll be happy.’’

When the Knicks traded with the Kings in August for Acy and Travis Outlaw, who has been, by contrast, uninspiring, general manager Steve Mills said the former Baylor combo forward showed enough scrap and liveliness in summer league to merit a deal. The Knicks gave up Jeremy Tyler and Wayne Ellington in the trade.

But Acy, 24, probably wouldn’t have gotten this opportunity if not for Bargnani’s hamstring strain. Bargnani started the first preseason game, but has sat out the last three with the 6-foot-7 Acy promoted over Amar’e Stoudemire at power forward.

“I think that separates myself — just high energy,’’ Acy said. “Not a lot of guys in the league do the things I do. I take pride in it and take pride in my defense and take some pride in being a great overall teammate.’’

Acy, a 2012 second-round pick of Toronto (37th), was traded by the Raptors to the Kings last season in the Rudy Gay blockbuster.

Fisher said from the get-go it’s not the most talented five players who will start and intangibles would factor in. Jose Calderon, Carmelo Anthony and Samuel Dalembert have locked up the starting point guard, small forward and center positions, respectively. Iman Shumpert appears to have staked his claim to the starting shooting guard job.

Then there’s power forward, for which four guys are competing. Aside from Acy, Bargnani and Stoudemire, there’s free-agent signee Jason Smith, who missed time because of the birth of his daughter but lit up the Sixers for 14 points Tuesday night in Syracuse.

“It’s important to have guys like Iman and [Acy] because there’s certain types of intensity and mind-set that’s contagious within the team,’’ Fisher said. “That high motor. Teammates enjoy feeding off it. Right now we have some guys born that way.’’

Acy has had his beard since his time at Baylor, though, he says, “not as long.’’

On Media Day, Acy said it is the baddest beard in the league.

“It’s just me,’’ he said. “People like it. A lot of people come in and say I like it. But I’m not wearing it to impress people. I’m just wearing it because I like it.’’

Acy has impressed the Knicks staff with more than facial hair — as a board-crasher, ball-mover and screen-setter. He’s confident enough in the triangle offense to launch his below-average jumper.

“[Knicks team president] Phil [Jackson] is not a man of many words, but he just says he loves my energy and told me to step up and take the shots with confidence when I get them,’’ Acy said. “Just do what I do.

“Just help run the offense. It’s different for everybody. It requires a lot of thinking. Making sure I’m in the right places. Making sure I’m getting my teammates open, making sure I’m active on the boards and making open shots when given.’’

Acy’s strong play has given Fisher a conundrum at the power-forward spot.

“There’s a lot to think about because all those players are really good players and all do good things,’’ Fisher said. “It’s not about picking one of those guys as the best player. It’s which one is best for the balance of our team. That will still be a question mark for a while.

“It’s tough to evaluate it with Bargnani being out.’’

Jackson actually did lay off one of the team’s scouts in the offseason — Stephen Giles — one of the club’s two advance scouts.

Giles was considered a hire of former coach Mike Woodson and an extension of the dismissed coaching staff. Giles moved up in the NBA world, hired as the Cavaliers advance scout.

Jackson retained Matt Harding for advance duties.

After some initial uncertainty, the New York Knicks plan to pick up the third-year contract option for guard Shane Larkin, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

The Knicks have been satisfied with Larkin, 22, in the preseason, and will guarantee the $1.67 million on his contract for the 2015-16 season.

The deadline for guaranteeing the third-year option comes at the end of October.

As Knicks president Phil Jackson plans to use significant salary cap space for high-profile free agents in the summer of 2015, he’s been cautious on committing guaranteed money to the payroll. In the preseason, Larkin has averaged 2.5 points and 1.5 a.ssists in 20 minutes per game for New York.

New York acquired Larkin, guard Jose Calderon and center Sam Dalembert from Dallas as part of a deal for center Tyson Chandler and guard Raymond Felton in June.

Larkin was the 18th overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft in which he was part of a deal from Atlanta to Dallas. He averaged 10.2 minutes per game as a rookie for the Mavericks in the 2013-14 season. Larkin was an All-ACC player at the University of Miami.
