Carmelo Frustrated by Garnett in Knicks Loss
Boston’s midtown matchup with the New York Knicks was a testy affair during – and apparently after – the Celtics’ 102-96 win.
Several reports shortly after the game indicated that Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony charged towards the Celtics locker room before being restrained by teammates.
There was also another confrontation near the Celtics team bus where Anthony was nearby, waiting for Garnett.
You can bet that Anthony will get a call from league security regarding the incidents of Monday night, with a potential punishment of some sort – maybe even a suspension – will be handed out.
Throughout the game – but particularly in the second half – Anthony had a number of verbal exchanges with C’s big man Kevin Garnett.
It got to the point where both were whistled for a double technical foul by official Tony Brothers.
“Heat of battle, guys go back and fourth,” Garnett said. “He’s trying to get his team to go, I’m trying to get my team to go. Both teams are colliding; not to mention it’s the Knicks and the Celtics. That’s just what it is.”
