Celtics' Kevin Garnett Will Not Face A Suspension Or Fine

Earlier in the day, there was some worry (not from Celtics president Danny Ainge) that Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett could be fined or suspended for his role in a dustup at the conclusion of the Celtics' loss to the New York Knicks on Dec. 25.

Garnett and Bill Walker came together after the game was over. Garnett put his hand toward Walker's face as he approached. Garnett's hand impacted Walker on the side of the neck and the two players were separated before anything else happened.

Garnett missed a shot at the buzzer in the 106-104 loss. Walker had run out to try to guard Garnett on the play.

Garnett had 15 points (on 6-13 shooting), 8 rebounds, 3 assists and a block against the Knicks.

Danny Ainge said about the incident between Garnett and Walker:

"I don't think it was that kind of thing," he said today. "It might be a technical foul, but that's all. I don't know what was said. He was provoked in some regard." (via Boston Herald)
