NEW YORK — 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.

A shouting match ensued, with police and security staying in between the players before things escalated any further. Knicks coach Mike Woodson eventually came on the scene to try and calm his star player and get him away from the area.

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.

Anthony's post-game tirade seemed to take some of the events near the end of the game to another level.

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.

Even after the double technical, it was clear that the verbal tit-for-tat was still alive in well as both players could be seen frequently still tossing verbal barbs at one another.

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."

Rivers also downplayed the incident.

"The game just got heated. It's basketball," Rivers said. "There's nothing wrong with getting heated. It happens. It's a fun game, it's competitive. It's rough at times and that's good. I think all that's good. It should never carry over past that. I had my moments as a player as well. It does happen but you don't want it to; and whenever it does, you feel terrible later.

Rivers added, "This is the way the game should be played to me. It should be competitive, hard game."

Wow. How did that get out? Did Melo somehow admit to it and expose it or who was the snitch? Cause KG was just giving PC answers after the game and seemingly wanted no part of it anymore.

There's rumors on Twitter saying that Melo and LaLa are headed for a divorce.

Sounds like KG crossed the line with what he said. I'm not sure how that comes up during trash talk but it was pretty damn funny to me lol.

This was already prior to the incident I'm assuming correct? If so and KG already knew this and STILL decided to go there, that only makes it even worse imo.
