Amar’e Stoudemire was feeling his oats all day, perhaps knowing he would again be needed to be “The Man’’ with Carmelo Anthony out last night.

Though coach Mike Woodson still didn’t start him, Stoudemire did not disappoint. Stoudemire dominated again with his second straight 22-point game as the Knicks survived Anthony’s absence in an 87-77 victory over the Pistons.

“I don’t have to remind guys, man,’’ Stoudemire said before the game when asked if he still is a dominant player. “My dossier speaks for itself. I’ve been in this league for a long time.’’

Add this one to Stoudemire’s dossier, though he needed help in the second half to repel the pesky Pistons. Raymond Felton saved the Knicks with a sensational final two quarters as they rallied from 10 points down to beat Detroit for the fourth time this season.

The Knicks (37-21) play host to Western Conference powerhouse Oklahoma City (44-16) tonight and perhaps will have do so without Anthony again, putting more pressure on Stoudemire.

They have now beaten the Pistons in three different cities this season — New York, London and Greater Detroit. But that won’t do them any good tonight versus Kevin Durant and Co.
