Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett jawed from baseline to midcourt, and Anthony still had more to say. So the Knicks forward went toward the Celtics locker room after the game to keep shouting, taking his frustrations from the court right along with him.

Paul Pierce scored 23 points, and Boston beat host New York 102-96 on Monday night in a heated first meeting of the season between the Atlantic Division rivals.

Anthony left without talking to reporters, and the Knicks wouldn’t comment on Anthony’s postgame trip in the wrong direction.

MSG Network reported the incident, in which security had to step in and send Anthony back in the right direction, as it went to its postgame show, and the league likely will investigate and might penalize the Knicks’ leading scorer and reigning Eastern Conference player of the week.

Comcast SportsNet New England posted a video on its website showing Anthony waiting near the Celtics’ team bus after the game, with coach Mike Woodson and New York City police nearby.

“I didn’t know what was going on at that point in time,” Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire said.

Garnett added 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Celtics, who even without the suspended Rajon Rondo won their third straight. Rondo was suspended Monday for making contact with a referee in a game against Atlanta on Saturday and failure to cooperate with an NBA investigation.
