06:57 AM ET 05.02 | This time, Carmelo Anthony had a far more measured response. The game ended with guard Raymond Felton stepping into the middle of a heated discussion between a frustrated Anthony and reserve Boston guard Jordan Crawford. Amateur lip-readers across the Internet suggested that it appeared that Crawford made a vulgar comment about Anthony's wife, in line with a similar remark allegedly made by Kevin Garnett -- sending the Knicks' star into a postgame tizzy -- earlier this season. ... "I'm not thinking about Jordan Crawford right now, not at this point, I'll tell you that," Anthony said, nearly an hour after the game ended. "I don't even think he deserves for you to be typing (about him) right now."

I saw this and it really looked like Crawford said the word "wife" at one point. It's just better to be quiet and focus on trying to win 2 more games.

Can't be ready to fight everytime somebody says something about your wife. They keep messing with you because you keep letting them get in your head.

NY just needed to go straight to the locker room. Felton was stupid to even respond. Too much talk and no action. Who's more important? The starter or the bench warmer?

I was trying to find the right word to describe the Knicks performance last night.....gutless came to mind first, but it wasn't that.I'd say it was just plain stupidity.There was ZERO passing, ZERO driving to the hole, and minimal defense.So basically they played jungle ball, AT HOME, and basically gave the celts new life.What a complete joke of a performance.

Melo 18/59 in the last 2 games
0-12 behind the arc
4 assists

those aren't good stats for that man

Carmelo never passes up on a shot. Whether on or off the court. He just made Crawford relevant. Lance Stephenson got his 10 minutes of fame when he mocked Lebron last year in the playoffs. Lebron was smart enough to not respond. Carmelo wasn't.

JR was 0 for 10 at one point.

Crawford mentioned something about "that boy F&'d your wife" and D.J White called Melo something else and and asked Felton "what the F& you gone do". Bench warmers going at Melo. I see is as a goon trying to get Melo tossed for next game or get in his head. This is more like a response to the "funeral" Knicks had for the Celtics that was just disrespectful so the Celtics "scrub mob" tried to flip it on the Knicks but they won the game no trash talking needed for that.

Knicks seem to lose every game they rely on 3pt shooting. Every team can't be the 2011 Mavericks from 3 point range. Live be the three eventually you will die by the three

It's tough when the talking is turned on them. If you keep chirping and don't win, than you'll get embarrassed and look like a stupid fool for taking too much...
