D.J. Augustin kept shooting and hitting, slashing and cutting, and soon it had come to a weary halt for the Bulls in Game 2. Ultimately, they all understand these playoffs fall upon their production, and the ranks of reliability are closing fast. Read More. Written by Shams Charania on Apr 23, 2014
"Two sources with knowledge of the incident said that Anthony, after angrily walking off the floor and through the visiting team's tunnel, went outside the Celtics' locker room screaming, presumably for Garnett."
"I wanted to talk to KG," Anthony said after practice Tuesday. "I think it was something that we both needed to get off our chests and see what really was the problem. It wasn't no altercations, it was just some words and [a] conversation that we needed to have."
A league source said the conversation between Anthony and Garnett actually took place over the phone following the bus incident, and the two players have since cleared the air.
Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo said he wasn't sure what was happening when he saw the commotion near the team bus.
"I thought everybody was coming to talk to each other and figure out some things, going to dinner next time," Rondo said. "I don't know."
Garnett and Anthony first got tangled up in the fourth quarter and both were whistled for a technical foul after jawing with one another near midcourt. Anthony was upset over something Garnett said to him.
"It's certain things that you just don't say to men, another man," Anthony said. "I felt that he crossed the line. Like I said, we're both at an understanding right now, we handled it the way we handled it. Nobody needs to know what was said behind closed doors. So that situation is handled."

KG pushed Melo's buttons, Melo reacted but never got violent & said the right things today. For that, I'm guessing fine, no suspension

For what it's worth, I'm hearing that KG's insult that set off Carmelo had nothing to do with "cereal." He used a more common expression.
A fine for what? Technically he didn't do ****. Fined for waiting outside the visiting team's bus? He was just standing there. No fine and certainly now suspension the way I see it.
