Brawl at MSG video: Ten players ejected in Nuggets rout of Knicks
New York, NY (Sports Network) – Ten different players, including Nuggets star
Carmelo Anthony, were ejected for fighting after a wild brawl near the end of
Denver’s 123-100 throttling of the New York Knicks.
The fireworks started when J.R. Smith was horse-collared by New York’s Mardy
Collins as he was driving to the basket with 1:15 left. Smith took exception
and started shoving with Collins and Knicks guard Nate Robinson then came in
and tackled Smith near the crowd. As the players were being broken up, Anthony
unleashed a right hand that hit Collins squarely in the jaw and Jared Jeffries
raced to get at Anthony as he backed up.
Jeffries was pulled down though, and after order was restored, the 10 players
left the court.
