NBA: Anthony suspended for 15 games

Associated Press

NEW YORK — NBA scoring leader Carmelo Anthony was suspended for 15 games Monday and six other players were penalized as commissioner David Stern came down hard on both teams after the Nuggets and Knicks brawled at Madison Square Garden.

Nate Robinson and J.R. Smith each got 10 games, and four other players also were suspended. Stern fined each organization $500,000. But there was no separate penalty for Knicks coach Isiah Thomas, who had warned Anthony not to go into the lane before the mayhem started Saturday night.


NEW YORK — Stephon Marbury’s layup just beat the buzzer, and gave the New York Knicks a stunning 97-96 overtime victory over the Utah Jazz on Monday night, two nights after their brawl with the Nuggets.
