Sad to see something like this happen again. Especially since melo was involved. Hope he doesnt get to big of a suspension becuase he really was really trying to clean up his image. What are your thoughts on the matter?

Denver led 119-100 when Knicks guard Mardy Collins grabbed Denver's J.R. Smith around the neck as Smith was going in for a breakaway layup. Smith got up and jawed with Collins, and New York's Nate Robinson jumped in to yell at Smith.

"They were having their way with us,'' Knicks coach Isiah Thomas said. "I think J.R. Smith had just made one dunk when he reversed and spun in the air. And I think Mardy didn't want our home crowd to see that again. So he fouled him.''

Anthony rushed in and pushed Robinson in the neck, triggering the roughest moment, when Robinson and Smith went flying into the stands while fighting with each other. Anthony also appeared to throw a punch at Collins, and then backed away toward the center of the court.

New York's Jared Jeffries ran from the baseline toward Anthony, but was tackled by a Denver player. The brawl stretched to the other end of the court toward the Nuggets' bench before coaches and security finally pulled Smith away and restored order.

Marcus Camby, Andre Miller, Eduardo Najera, Smith and Anthony were the Nuggets who were ejected; Channing Frye, David Lee, Collins, Robinson and Jeffries were the Knicks who were kicked out.


Must've been quite a brawl. No one has really said anything about it on ESPN so far. Depending on how long those 5 Nuggets get suspended, that could change the face of the whole Western Conference. The suspension could determine whether the Nuggets will be going for a late playoff run or what.

Seems like Carmelo may face a 10 game suspension... which means Denver will have a hard time winning more than a couple of games during that time.
