The Knicks were ready to end their four game skid yesterday as they faced off against the 76’ers. During the third quarter things got chippy when Carmelo Anthony took a shot at the back of Spencer Hawes’ head. The Sixers center stepped to Melo but his teammate Tyson Chandler shoved Hawes away.
“Anthony was eventually issued a flagrant foul for his retaliation for what he said was an elbow to his throat. ‘I didn’t mean to hit him in the head,’ Anthony said. ‘It was just one of them plays. I wasn’t mad. I was just reacting to the elbow I caught.’ […] ‘It felt like a punch,’ Hawes said. ‘That’s why I was so [mad].’ Thanks to Chandler, Hawes never got near Anthony as both players were swarmed by teammates and officials. Technical fouls were issued and play resumed without further incident.
Did you see Kenyon Martin back there giggling? He loves it. He’s happy to be a Knick.
