Tensions between the Boston Celtics and New York Knicks are really beginning to run high heading into Game 6 of their opening round playoff series. After Boston beat New York at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night, Carmelo Anthony and Jordan Crawford got into it near the bench and had to be separated by teammates. It is unclear exactly what Crawford was saying to Anthony, but a number of self-proclaimed lip readers insist he was saying some not-so-nice stuff about ‘Melo’s wife, La La Anthony. On Thursday, it appeared that La La fired back on her Instagram account. If you can’t make it out, La La wrote, “Try again. You on the bench for a reason,” which seems to be an obvious shot at Crawford. If you remember the whole Honey Nut Cheerios incident, you know that this is not the first time La La has been at the center of trash talk between the Celtics and Knicks. Crawford, who did not play in Game 5, had the following to say when asked about the exchange between he and Anthony. “I don’t know what happened,” Crawford told the Boston Globe. “I don’t know what happened, you know what I’m saying? I was on the bench the whole game, I don’t know why they was talking to me. “They gotta be upset, their [expletives] tightening up. Of course they upset.” Just when it appeared that the Knicks were on the verge of sweeping the aging Celtics, things started to get extremely interesting. Boston now gets to host Game 6 in front of what is sure to be an electric crowd at the TD Garden. If Kevin Garnett and company can force Game 7, Knicks fans should start to get very, very nervous.
