Report: Carmelo Anthony will not be suspended for hit on Spencer Hawes

New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony will not be suspended by the NBA for his altercation with Philadelphia 76ers center Spencer Hawes on Sunday night, reports ESPN.com.

In the third quarter of the Knicks' 99-93 victory over the Sixers, Anthony hit Hawes in the back of the head as the two were fighting for position on a rebound. Hawes reacted angrily and had to be pushed away as he approached Anthony but was restrained by Knicks center Tyson Chandler.

Hawes and Chandler received double technicals for the play and Anthony received a flagrant foul. Anthony said after the game that Hawes had elbowed him prior to the incident.

"He's just got to control his emotions," Knicks coach Mike Woodson said. "Melo is a physical player and he likes contact which is great. He doesn’t back away from contact. We had the altercation and we were able to pull away from it. No punches were thrown. They assessed the technicals and the flagrants the way they saw it and we moved on."
