Shawn Marion gets in the face of Matt Barnes after being shoved twice on one possession (VIDEO)

Mar 28, 2014, 12:16 AM EDT

The Clippers and the Mavericks were engaged in a chippy and competitive contest on Thursday, which is completely understandable given the position that Dallas is currently in, fighting for their playoff lives.

There were multiple technicals handed out throughout the game, a few of which were earned during this one incident that took place midway through the third quarter involving Shawn Marion, Matt Barnes and Chris Paul.

Marion snapped a bit after being shoved twice on the same possession, the first time by Paul and then more subtly by Barnes. It appeared as though Marion believed Barnes was the one who got him both times by the way he went after him, or perhaps other things went on during the game up until this point that we weren’t immediately aware of.

Either way, Marion’s reaction earned him a technical foul, and Paul and Barnes were each whistled for one, as well.

      I mean he ain’t really do much here though.

      I wouldn’t put them in the same category, Evans just plays hard with his limited offense, Barnes sells too many woof tickets to be taken serious.

      Being a Kings fan and having Barnes for a bit and now Evans, I would take Evans every single day. No question.

    I may be a minority but I love the way Barnes plays

      @afirst916
      sure when he’s on your team, but in reality he’s a fake tough guy.

        You don’t have to like Barnes, but there’s nothing fake about him. Dude’s fearless.

        I don’t know your definition of tough, or fake tough. But Barnes has to be one of the most scrappy players, if not too scrappy and reckless. Had you not seen him punching/shoving bigger players (and rightfully got ejected, suspended, fined)?

        @Divan
        Getting up in a guy’s face’s on the court doesn’t make you “fearless”. Everybody knows it is gonna get broken up before anything happens. If he was really fearless, he woulda got @ the Game’s boy who called him about….Lets just say having “Fun” with Barnes’s old lady. Ijs!!

    Barnes is no punk but he wants no part of Marion. That dude is strong as heck and i’ve seen him snap in a summer league game.

    Shawn come home every summer and hold a FREE basket camp for a week and give them hoop gear. Vets don’t go hard at each other Matt Bums

    Matt Barnes in the middle of a dust-up? Nah, couldn’t be.
