Last night in what was a hard fought game between the Boston Celtics and New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett had a lot of words on the court which spilled into the locker room after the game where Melo waited for KG to board the Celtics team bus. Not only did the Knicks lose 102-96, Melo had maybe his worse shooting night of the year going 6-26 and now the Knicks may lose Melo for a game after David Stern reviews the film.
Below is a video from CSNNE and a Snippet from what Doc Rivers had to say via CSNNE:
Celtics coach Doc Rivers had little to say when asked about Anthony approaching his team’s locker room after the Celtics win which extended Boston’s winning streak to three in a row. “I’m going to let y’all figure that one out. I’m going to stay out of that. If it was the playoffs I’d tell on him,” quipped Rivers. “But since it’s not I’m just going to be quiet.”
Garnett chalked it up to just a couple of players trying to do what they can to help their respective teams be successful in a tightly contested game. “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.”
