Well done Matt Barnes.

Not sure I’ve ever seen a guy get suspended for a game from a pro-am league before. Then again, I’ve never seen a player punch an opposing player in a pro-am game before. Well, Barnes said it was more pushing than punch later, but still.

Barnes did it and he has been suspended for it, reports ESPNLosAngeles.

Barnes did not back down from the incident afterwards. He owned it. Now he can own the night off.
