Carmelo Anthony had another 40 point performance but it wasn’t enough overcome LeBron James and Dwyane Wade as the two Heat stars combined for 57 points, and Miami took a 93-85 victory at Madison Square Garden.

‘Melo finished with 42 points on 14 of 27 shooting to go along with nine board and five assists.

James’ 29 and Wade’s 28 were backed by 16 points and 14 rebounds from Chris Bosh.

The Heat out-rebounded New York 47-33 in a see-saw battle that could be a first-round playoff preview – the Knicks, who are floating back and forth between the seventh and eighth, could face Miami, the two-seed, if the two teams hold their positions in the standings.

Miami’s win Sunday clinched the Southeast Division.

J.R. Smith was the only other Knick in double-figures, finishing with 16 points, hitting 4 of 9 from 3-point range.

As a team, New York was just 9 of 30 from long-range.

The Knicks (31-29) host the Atlantic Division leading Celtics on Tuesday night at 8:00.
