Carmelo Anthony has been suspended for one game without pay for confronting Boston’s Kevin Garnett in the arena tunnel, near the players’ locker rooms, and in the parking garage following the Celtics at Knicks game Monday, the NBA announced.
“There are no circumstances in which it is acceptable for a player to confront an opponent after a game,” NBA Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Stu Jackson said. “Carmelo Anthony attempted to engage with Kevin Garnett multiple times after Monday’s game and therefore a suspension was warranted.”
Anthony traveled to Indiana Wednesday with the team, but will serve his suspension Thursday when the Knicks play the Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
