A testy night between Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony and Celtics forward Kevin Garnett reportedly ended with Anthony waiting out near the Celtics' bus to exchange words with Garnett.

Anthony and Garnett got chippy with each other during the Celtics' 102-96 win over the Knicks on Monday. Both received technical fouls as tempers flared in the fourth quarter of a game in which Anthony struggled and shot only 6 of 26 from the field.

After the game's final horn sounded, Anthony left the floor through the Celtics' tunnel at Madison Square Garden. He was reportedly waiting for Garnett outside the Celtics locker room and was restrained by teammates and some security, MSG Network reported (via Newsday).

Neither Knicks coach Mike Woodson or Celtics coach Doc Rivers would comment on that incident when asked by reporters.

"As the game wore on, we just let things get to us a little bit. We can't let that happen," Woodson said.

But Anthony wasn't done trying to get a word — and maybe more — in with Garnett. The New York Daily News' Frank Isola reported that Anthony went outside the arena and waited for Garnett by the Celtics' team bus. Anthony drew the attention of Woodson, MSG security and five NYPD officers to diffuse any situation, Isola reported.

Here is Isola's stream of tweets on the circumstances:
