Knicks' Anthony suspended for one game

New York Knicks' Carmelo Anthony has been slapped with a one-game ban for confronting Boston's Kevin Garnett following Celtics' 102-96 win, the National Basketball Association announced.

The incident took place in the arena tunnel, near the players' locker rooms, and in the parking garage outside Madison Square Garden.

"There are no circumstances in which it is acceptable for a player to confront an opponent after a game," NBA vice president Stu Jackson said.

"Carmelo Anthony attempted to engage with Kevin Garnett multiple times after Monday's game and therefore a suspension was warranted."

Anthony's suspension will be served Thursday, when the Knicks play on the road against the Indiana Pacers.

He is averaging 29 points per game and 6.1 rebounds this season.
