Garnett was in a vulnerable position, no doubt about it. But in that moment, Anthony did what any true sportsman would do: He extended his hand to Garnett.
“Because,” Anthony said, “there are no grudges between myself and KG. He fell and I helped him up.”
Anthony settled a score with Garnett and the Celtics Thursday night but he did so without trading insults and having to confront anyone near the locker room or the team bus. Anthony scored 28 points as the Knicks frustrated the offensively challenged Celtics to defeat Boston, 89-86, and snap a 13-game skid here.
