Melo was an ass all night, and if it was Rondo he would have been sent packing. Melo during one foul call swiped at KG, and it was after the whistle. Which most guys get technical fouls called. Melo wouldn't stop yapping after KG, and him were hit with double techs.
Carmelo Anthony approached the Celtics locker room after New York's loss to Boston on Monday and was screaming, MSG Network reported.
One witness to the incident confirmed that Anthony was involved in a postgame incident, but declined to elaborate.
"It was just a big commotion," one witness to the incident said. "It was like being in the school yard."
Garnett tried to defuse the situation.
"Listen, heat of the battle, man, guys throw back and forth," Garnett said of the on-court dust-up with Anthony. "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 that it's the Knicks and the Celtics. Just what it is."
Garnett and Anthony are on pace to comprise part of the Eastern Conference frontcourt at the All-Star game next month in Houston. The Celtics and Knicks meet again before that during a national TV game on Jan. 24 in Boston.
Celtics rookie Jared Sullinger brought some levity on the testy atmosphere at Madison Square Garden.
"That's testy? That's testy?" he asked. "I've seen way worse stuff in the 80s and I wasn't even born in the 80s. So, if that's testy, I didn't see it."
This game was everything, and more. The Celtics pulled off a testy playoff type game,and it's what you expect out of this team. The Celtics still have fight, and I'm sure they believe they should be sitting at the top in the Atlantic. I dislike the Knicks. Not like the Lakers, or Heat. The Celtics have shacked the soft label, and this game wasn't about fighting. It was about getting into the head of their opponent, and it worked because Melo can't seem to shake it.

As you see Rondo there to aid KG.
