Carmelo Anthony said it is time for him and Amar’e Stoudemire to have a heart-to-heart.

The superstar tandem have been a staggering wreck. If not fixed soon, the Knicks’ season — and coach Mike D’Antoni’s job — will be on the line.

“We as a team need to do a better job getting Amar’e the ball,’’ Anthony admitted. “I have the ball in my hands. Maybe it’s on me. Maybe I have to give him the ball a little more, help him out with that. We’ll talk probably [today] and try to figure it out together. If I’m doing too much, I want him to tell me. I want the guys on the team to tell me if I’m doing too much.’’
UNLUCKY SEVEN: Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks’ latest stumble came against Danilo Gallinari and the Nuggets Saturday night at the Garden, a double-overtime defeat that stretched the Knicks’ losing streak to six.

UNLUCKY SEVEN: Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks’ latest stumble came against Danilo Gallinari and the Nuggets Saturday night at the Garden, a double-overtime defeat that stretched the Knicks’ losing streak to six.

Anthony was booed after the Knicks’ sixth straight loss Saturday night, a double-overtime defeat to the Nuggets, his former team. Though Anthony said he isn’t bothered by the boos, he appeared humbled. The Knicks (6-10) start a four-game road trip starting tomorrow in Charlotte, and are hoping to get point guard Baron Davis back Saturday in Houston.

While Anthony may be shooting too much, Stoudemire appears to have been frozen out. On Saturday, Stoudemire barely touched the ball, let alone took a shot, throughout in the second half and two overtimes.

Stoudemire’s meaningless 3-pointer with 7.6 seconds left in the second OT was his first shot attempt since late in the third quarter.

According to a source familiar with the situation, Anthony has been too obsessed with his points and Stoudemire is too concerned with Anthony taking over the team. There’s also too much finger-pointing, according to the source.

Stoudemire and Anthony are co-captains and their impending meeting is more important than anything D’Antoni can say.

Stoudemire’s scoring average has dropped to just 17.6 points on 41.3 percent shooting. Last season, Stoudemire averaged 25.3 points on 50.2 percent shooting and was an MVP candidate before the February trade for Anthony.

Anthony said “maybe’’ he has to take fewer shots and said he’d sit with the training staff today and decide if he should take one game off to rest his sprained wrist and ankle. It seems unlikely for him to miss games this week with the team in crisis.

“Maybe I should take the blame for the games we’re losing,’’ Anthony said. “Coach does run the offense through me. I’ll take the blame. It’s obvious I’m beat up. I don’t want to use that as any excuse. Maybe it’s time to revaluate everything, reevaluate my body, sit with the trainers, see what’s going on.’’

With reserve center Josh Harrellson sidelined for six weeks with a broken wrist, it’s not the time for Anthony to sit, but rather to play better and make his teammates and Stoudemire better.

In his reflective ramble by his locker late Saturday, Anthony added: “Maybe I need not to take so many shots. That’s just a bunch of thoughts that go through my mind. Coming down, taking less shots. Figuring out ways to make other guys better. Should I pass it more?’’

Anthony’s injuries are well-documented. Eleven days ago, he sprained his wrist and ankle in Memphis. Stoudemire has no defined injury and D’Antoni believes he may be fatigued from the lockout schedule. Stoudemire has little of the pop from last season that sparked fans to chant “MVP.’’

Stoudemire’s digs at Anthony are subtle. Thursday, he said the club needs to move the ball and buy into D’Antoni’s selfless system. After the Denver loss, Stoudemire went out of his way to salute the key piece in the deal, ex-Knick Danilo Gallinari, who posted a career-high 37 points.

Stoudemire said Gallinari’s performance did not surprise him because he was “insane’’ as a Knick and lavished praise on Denver. “They’re playing great team basketball,’’ Stoudemire said. “It’s hard to guard those guys when they move the ball like they do.’’

Injuries and selfishness are ruining Anthony’s first full season as a Knick. Over his last seven games, he is shooting 56 of 158 (35 percent), and is at 40.4 percent on the season.

Melo the only one who been scoring though.
He missed alot of shots yes but who he gonna pass to?
Amare freezes once he sees the paint like he got beat up by sherman williams
Shumpert a rookie and has his moments but he a rookie
Fields............???? anywhere???????
Tyson a d player and only good for the alley oops

They not moving the ball around yes, because Melo going one on one all day. They play better when they move the ball around but we gonna act like Melo isnt top 5 scorers in the league?

I agree but why isnt he acting like that then?
Stephen A Smith went off on Stat saying maybe they should trade him. Stat honeslty my favorite KNick right now but he right. Stat acting like a SG, taking jump shots Wtf he aint ray allen. Drive and attack the fu*king basket.

Melo is scoring on sh*tty efficiency don't care he is top 5 in scoring...it isn't totally Melo's fault but his style of play was never a successful one it's a reason he only been out the first round once and this year looks no different...

Stat lost it will never recover to how he was playing last year i think.
Just Look at how fast he was moving in these videos and how much better he looked even on defense

















fu*kin idiot gained 20 pounds in the summer only to get slower. I just watched some games from last season early in the year he look like a different player. Last year he was fast and mobile and energetic. His mid range was money and he had a skip in his step. Now ???? This n*gga moves like an old man i dont know if its the knees the back or whatever but something aint right with him from last year this time compared to now. It aint just Melo or no more felton its more than that.

Yep your right man. Im hoping he just out of shape and will get back into it end of the month.
Stat move like a fu*king rock out there man. But Melo doing the same sh*t. He cant move lateral at all.
They both have no feeling to play any defense at alll.
But I blame the coach most of all...All these issue and D Antoni just lets the team run the team.. Get Melo and Stat on some fu*king diets

We just need a solid PG. Getting rid of Felton and Billups was a mistake.
