GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- On the eve of the New York Knicks' rematch with the Boston Celtics, Carmelo Anthony says there is no "bad blood" between he and Boston big man Kevin Garnett.

"It's no bad blood, no grudges between us (or) anything like that," Anthony said after practice on Wednesday. "I don't hold no grudges or have any bad blood towards the guy."

The Knicks will play the Celtics in Boston on Thursday for the first time since Garnett and Anthony were involved in a post-game confrontation at Madison Square Garden on Jan. 7. Anthony was suspended for his role in the dust-up.

In addition to playing against one another on Thursday, Garnett and Anthony will also share the floor at the NBA All-Star Game in Houston on Feb. 17. Both are starters for the Eastern Conference.

Anthony doesn't anticipate any carryover from his confrontation with Garnett on Thursday or during the All-Star Game.
