"This is a game we have to win, we have to go get it", Anthony said. "I put a lot of that on myself".
Porzingis and Derrick Rose did, however, sort of junk up the endgame after Kristaps's end-to-end play. "I'm probably going to think about it tonight". Anthony was tossed in the first half of the Knicks' Nov 11 game against the Boston Celtics.
The New York Knicks All-Star forward was ejected during the second quarter of the team's road game against the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night after he punched Sefolosha while the two were lobbying for position in the paint.
"He punched me", Sefolosha said after the game. Anthony used his left arm to push ahead of Sefolosha, briefly grabbing the latter's neck area, then he hit Sefolosha in the face with his right arm. "It's whatever. The referee - I'm glad they looked back at it - they made the right call".
Thousands attend birthday party in Mexico after Facebook invitation goes viral
A Mexican celebrity, Gael Garcia Bernal, even made a parody video of Crescencio's honest mistake. In it, he claimed "everyone" was welcome to attend, promising bands, a meal and the horse race.
Melo now has 10 career ejections. Both earned technical fouls for that exchange, and the game was delayed for several minutes as officials conducted a video review of what led to the jawing. But the offense definitely suffered, and it's ludicrous to pretend they're more unsafe with Lance Thomas in there than Anthony. Despite having veteran official Monty McCutchen as crew chief, the officials seemed somewhat overzealous and desperate to control the game at times.
Derrick Rose scored 26 points and Kristaps Porzingis added 24, but NY couldn't fend off Dennis Schroder (27 points) and Dwight Howard (16 points, 22 rebounds) without Anthony, a nine-time NBA All-Star, NCAA Champion and Olympic gold medalist. Anthony refused to speak to reporters as he boarded the team bus after the game. This is only their second loss when leading after the fourth quarter this season, bringing their record to 14-2.
The Knicks next play the Pelicans in New Orleans on Friday.
