Denver's Carmelo Anthony has been assessed a technical foul, but not ejected in Game 4 against Dallas after pushing off Antoine Wright.
Wright was wrapped around Anthony's arms under the Nuggets basket in the opening minute of the second quarter Monday night. When Wright didn't let go, Anthony swatted at the Mavericks guard. J.J. Barea of the Mavs then stepped between the two trying to calm the situation.
Officials called Wright for a loose ball foul and assessed a technical on Anthony. Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle was obviously upset when officials took no further action after reviewing video of the play.
In the closing seconds of Game 3 on Saturday, Wright tried to intentionally foul Anthony. No foul was called and Anthony hit a game-winning 3-pointer.
