Chippy Victory at MSG
The story of the game were the altercations between Garnett and Carmelo Anthony. They were called for double-technical fouls halfway though the fourth quarter, and remained chatty together throughout the game. Carmelo was then waiting for KG by the Celtics' team bus after the game, and was said to have to be restrained from the Celtics' locker room by security and teammates.
Here are some of the post game reports from CBS as well as a link to Barstool Sports for what KG is rumored to have said to Melo that set him off, click the links below:

What KG said to Melo that flipped the switch
Although some may knock on Garnett, this is part of the reason he is as effective as he is. Besides his expanded game on offense, being the teams MVP on defense, KG also plays the role of instigator. And from time-to-time it works like it did last night. "Garnett was in the best opposing players head and he finished the game like it was bothering him. Meanwhile, Paul Pierce was able to take the game into his hands and take the Celtics home.
