Carmelo Anthony went down, Raymond Felton went down and the Knicks were ready to go down, collapsing and blowing almost all of their 25-point third-quarter lead.

Somehow the Knicks escaped with a 103-98 victory at Amway Center over the Magic, but not even a win can be savored in this jinxed Knicks season.

Anthony could be lost for the Christmas clash with the Thunder — or longer despite his optimism. Felton could be lost for at least a month after hearing a pop in his right groin.

Knicks embattled coach Mike Woodson can’t seem to catch a break.
“It’s just been that type of year,’’ Felton said as he hobbled out of the locker room.

After Anthony sprained his left ankle in the third quarter and Felton, playing for the first time after missing six games with a strained hamstring, hurt his groin in the fourth quarter, all looked lost.

The Magic closed to within a point, but the Knicks suspended belief in Disney City as unlikely heroes Andrea Bargnani and Iman Shumpert carried them home. Bargnani hit two big buckets down the stretch and Shumpert made two big defensive plays to salvage what looked to be turning into a giant nightmare.

“We did it today,’’ Anthony said. “We rallied today. We pulled this game out. Us pulling this game out helped my ankle out a lot.’’
The Knicks moved to 9-18, but Melo’s status is unknown, despite sounding confident about playing on Christmas. Even if he plays, he might be limited for some time. And for a long stretch Monday, the Knicks barely showed a pulse when he was out.

“It’s on,’’ Anthony said about playing Wednesday. “I still have it. It ain’t going nowhere. Hopefully I’ll be there. I don’t want to miss that game, Christmas at the Garden. I haven’t been 100 percent since I got in the league and I won’t be 100 percent [Christmas].’’
