Carmelo Anthony is hacked by Rajon Rondo on Thursday.

PORTLAND — Carmelo Anthony says he can’t get no respect. But at least the NBA acknowledged it this time.

Just one day after the Knicks star vented about not getting foul calls, Anthony went up for a game-winner and was hacked by Rajon Rondo as he gathered himself for the 3-pointer. Whether or not Rondo’s grab affected the shot is questionable, but Anthony’s shot went wide left at the buzzer and the Knicks lost Thursday to the Kings, 99-97.

On Friday, the NBA noted the error in its daily report.

“Did you see it?” Anthony asked. “Let me know what you think about it, let me know in Portland (where the Knicks flew after the game).

“That was the shot that was there. It was still a clean look. I got the ball up there. Other than that, I’d rather not talk about it.”

Kristaps Porzingis was more upfront about the sentiment in the locker room.

“I think he may have gotten fouled on the play. Grabbed his arm,” the rookie said. “But I’m not going to judge on the calls.”
