And no, Anthony didn't feel the need to find Garnett after the final buzzer sounded.
He let his play do the talking. And what he did on the floor said plenty about Anthony, and about the New York Knicks.
Anthony scored a game-high 28 points, pulled down nine rebounds and played the role of distributor and decoy to perfection for the Knicks (26-14), who won for the first time in 14 road games against the Boston Celtics.
"For me, it was a matter of blocking everything out and just locking in," Anthony said.
And he did just that.
Anthony and Garnett shared the floor for the first time since their confrontation on Jan. 7 that led to a one-game suspension for the Knicks' star.
Though he insisted that he had moved on from the incident, many wondered how Anthony would respond to the hostile Boston environment.
