CARMELO ANTHONY of the New York Knicks has been suspended for one game without pay . . . for trying to chase down KEVIN GARNETT of the Boston Celtics after Monday night's game in Madison Square Garden.
--As you may recall, Garnett allegedly instigated the whole thing during the game, when he told Anthony that his wife tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios.
--But it was Anthony who went on the attack after the game.
--The NBA says, quote, "There are no circumstances in which it is acceptable to confront an opponent after a game."
--Anthony will serve the suspension tonight, when the Knicks meet the Pacers.
