The New York Knicks and the Boston Celtics have had a heated rivalry for years.
Now, it reportedly got worse, as Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett got into an altercation. It is not not clear what happened in the bowels of Madison Square Garden after the Celtics 102-96 win over the Knicks on Monday night.
Madison Square Garden official security had to get in between the two players. But the witnesses say they did not throw punches at each other.
“It was like being in the school yard,” one witness to the incident said to ESPN.
Anthony was still mad at Garnett, the report says, after getting into a conformation during the game. The incident between Anthony and Garnett happened in the second half of the game.
Anthony was so mad after the game that he tried to approach the Celtics locker room, and was screaming. Minutes later, he tried to approach Garnett, as the Celtics were loading onto their team bus.
Building security intervened to keep Anthony from attacking Garnett. Knicks head coach Mike Woodson has declined comment on the incident.
“I’m going to let y’all figure that one out,” Rivers said. “I’m going to stay out of that. If it was the playoffs, I’d tell on him, but since it’s not, I’m going to just be quiet.”
