NEW YORK (AP) - Carmelo Anthony has been suspended one game by the NBA for confronting Kevin Garnett after the New York Knicks' loss to Boston on Monday.
Anthony, who was angry about Garnett's choice of words during a fourth-quarter altercation, went toward the Celtics' locker room after the game and later waited for Garnett outside Boston's team bus.
Anthony didn't believe he would be suspended because he was just looking to talk to Garnett, not have an altercation. But NBA executive vice president of operations Stu Jackson said Wednesday there were ``no circumstances in which it is acceptable for a player to confront an opponent after a game.''
Anthony will miss the Knicks' nationally televised game at Indiana on Thursday and lose about $176,700 of his $19.4 million salary.
