Matt Barnes

  1. Matt Barnes details uncomfortable atmosphere on Clippers plane as takeoff was delayed until trade deadline passed

    Feb 21, 2014, 10:14 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Six

    It’s not uncommon for NBA players to find out they’ve been traded under somewhat unusual circumstances; we’ve heard of players waking up from naps to discover they’ve been dealt, or even finding out from a teammate once a flight had landed. But the Clippers created an extremely uncomfortable situation for their players on Thursday that…

  2. NBA Trade Deadline Tracker: All the trades, rumors, analysis, fun in one place

    Feb 20, 2014, 3:00 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…

  3. Report: Thunder had interest in trading for Iman Shumpert

    Feb 20, 2014, 1:39 PM EST

    Iman Shumpert

    There was progress made on talks Wednesday between the Knicks and the Clippers that centered around a trade involving Iman Shumpert. It would have been a disaster for the Knicks, who would have received Darren Collison (who isn’t good) and Matt Barnes or Reggie Bullock in exchange for Shumpert and Raymond Felton. Discussions eventually faded,…

  4. Report: Knicks may be closer to dealing Iman Shumpert to Clippers, talking smaller trade with Nuggets

    Feb 19, 2014, 8:06 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks - Game Two

    A report earlier on Wednesday had the Knicks engaged in trade talks with the Clippers that would send Iman Shumpert and Raymond Felton to Los Angeles in exchange for Darren Collison and Reggie Bullock. Despite getting out from under Felton’s contract, which is essentially for two more seasons beyond this one considering his player option…

  5. Clippers’ J.J. Redick out indefinitely with bulging disc in back, other injuries

    Feb 18, 2014, 9:08 PM EST

    J.J. Redick

    UPDATE: 9:08 pm: The Clippers have made it official, saying J.J. Redick is out “indefinitely with a bulging disc in his lower back.” While he certainly has a variety of injuries, it is the back that is the most serious. They still expect to have him back for the playoffs. 7:45 pm: This is pretty…

  6. The Extra Pass: Central heat, plus Monday’s recaps

    Mike Brown

    No NBA head coach has been fired yet this season. Of course, “yet” is the key word there. Given the performances and the high expectations of a few teams in the Eastern Conference’s Central Division, that could be changing soon. Here’s a look at the tenuous positions of three coaches from that division, in order…

  7. Denver’s Randy Foye hits ridiculous leaning game-winning three (VIDEO)

    Feb 4, 2014, 2:28 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Denver Nuggets

    Just seconds before the Clippers’ Matt Barnes had drained a three off a pass and a nice bit of improvisation from J.J. Redick. The Clippers had a two-point lead and looked like they were going to escape Mile High with a win. Then Randy Foye happened. Whatever Nuggets coach Brian Shaw drew up in the…

  8. The Extra Pass: A big test for the Clippers; plus Thursday’s recaps

    Dec 27, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    Pressure reveals character, and the last minutes of the Clippers road matchup with Portland did just that. Down the stretch, both teams played perfectly to their strengths. The Blazers ran everything through LaMarcus Aldirdge (32 points) on the left block, surrounding him with three-point shooters and daring the Clippers to double. The Clippers, meanwhile, put the…

  9. Clippers Matt Barnes fined $25,000, not for foul to Love but for not leaving court

    Dec 23, 2013, 6:05 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers

    We mentioned this when we brought you this ejection the first time — the foul didn’t seem that bad but if you’re ejected you can’t hang around and argue with the referees. The league frowns on this. And by “frowns” I mean “hates.” The Clippers’ Matt Barnes was fined $25,000 for the incident above from…

  10. Matt Barnes ejected for hard foul on Kevin Love (VIDEO)

    Dec 23, 2013, 1:55 AM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Los Angeles Clippers

    It’s some Bruin on Bruin crime. Kevin Love was having a monster night (he finished with 45 and 19) and the Clippers big men had no answer for him (or Nikola Pekovic) when this happened: Love got the ball at the three point line, pump faked and that just burned Ryan Hollins, so Love put…

  11. It’s official, Clippers agree to terms with Stephen Jackson

    Dec 9, 2013, 6:01 PM EST

    stephen-jackson-spurs

    As we told you earlier was likely to happen, Stephen Jackson has agreed to terms with the Los Angeles Clippers. For one, Doc Rivers confirmed it to Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times. Second, Jackson himself posted this on Instagram. The Clippers need some depth on the wing because J.J. Redick is out with…

  12. Report: Clippers close to adding Stephen Jackson to roster

    Dec 9, 2013, 8:44 AM EST

    Stephen Jackson

    J.J. Redick is out with a broken hand. Matt Barnes is out following surgery to repair a retinal tear in his left eye. Reggie Bullock is out with a sprained ankle. All this has left the Los Angeles Clippers short bodies on the wing, so they may bring in veteran Stephen Jackson to fill the…

  13. Thunder race out to early lead, get comfortable win over Clippers

    Nov 22, 2013, 1:17 AM EST

    Reggie Jackson Thunder

    If you watched Thursday night’s Thunder win over the Clippers, and compared it to the first time these two teams met — at least up to the point in that first game when Serge Ibaka was ejected — you could come away saying that the Thunder are just flat out better than the Clippers. At…

  14. Clippers’ Matt Barnes to have surgery to repair retinal tear, out two weeks

    Nov 21, 2013, 9:14 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Six

    The Clippers need Matt Barnes off the bench — he’s about the only guy off the bench who could be considered a plus defender — but they are going to be without him for a couple weeks. Barnes is going to have surgery to repair a retinal tear in his left eye, the team announced…

  15. PBT Extra: When Kobe comes back what does he bring to Lakers?

    Nov 20, 2013, 7:11 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    It’s an all Los Angeles PBT Extra with Kay Adams and myself. Of course, that means Kobe Bryant talk. That starts with when he comes back but moves on to what he brings when he does get back — it’s going to be gradual, but the Lakers’ offense is so off (25th in the league…

    Nov 14, 2013, 6:03 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers

    No suspension for Matt Barnes, the league didn’t come down on him as hard as expected. The Clippers Matt Barnes was fined $25,000 by the NBA for “failing to leave the court in a timely manner upon his ejection and using inappropriate language on his Twitter account during the game following his ejection,” the league…

  18. Clippers’ Matt Barnes apologizes for ejection, twitter rant

    Nov 14, 2013, 4:09 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Six

    Matt Barnes has apologized. Wednesday night when the Thunder’s Serge Ibaka and the Clippers’ Blake Griffin got tangled up, Barnes rushed to Griffin’s defense and shoved Ibaka. The result was an ejection and you can bet a suspension from the league will follow (Ibaka was ejected as well, Griffin got a technical). That suspension for…

  19. The Extra Pass: An early look at SportVU data and Wednesday’s recaps

    Chris Paul

    Chances are at some point this season, you’ve heard about SportVU. For the uninitiated, SportVU is a player tracking software that utilizes cameras positioned around the court to collect all sorts of data. It’s a major breakthrough for analytics, and while a good portion of teams have had the software and data for a few years,…

  20. Clippers rally to beat Thunder following ejection of Serge Ibaka

    ibaka-blake griffin

    LOS ANGELES – The Thunder looked to be well on their way to a convincing win over the Clippers on Wednesday, following a strong first half that saw them dominating the game offensively, and doing so with relative ease. But the results of an entanglement between Serge Ibaka and Blake Griffin with 6.2 seconds remaining…

  21. Serge Ibaka and Matt Barnes ejected after altercation involving Blake Griffin (VIDEO)

    LOS ANGELES – Late in the second quarter of Wednesday’s matchup between the Clippers and the Thunder, Serge Ibaka got tangled up with Blake Griffin while defending him in the post, and flung him towards the ground after being whistled for the foul. Matt Barnes immediately shoved Ibaka in retaliation, and that was followed by…

  22. PBT NBA Power Rankings: It’s the Pacers, Spurs then everyone else

    Nov 11, 2013, 2:21 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    David Stern’s nightmare Finals matchup is on top of the second PBT NBA Power rankings — Indiana and San Antonio. Lots of shifting still going on in the rankings as teams shake themselves out just a couple weeks into the season, but a few patterns are emerging. 1. Pacers (7-0, Last Week No. 1). Yes…

  23. Chris Paul says he could retire “a little early” to spend time with family

    Oct 22, 2013, 10:02 AM EST

    Chris Paul, Andre Miller

    Being a good father on an NBA schedule is not easy — the time and travel demands in season keep fathers away from home a lot. Chris Paul has balanced that out by making pretty much every day “take your child to work day” — his son (as well as Matt Barnes son and others)…

  24. Nick Young calls Clippers covering up Lakers championship banners at Staples Center ‘disrespectful’

    Oct 20, 2013, 8:03 PM EST

    Lakers.com

    We knew this was coming. After the Clippers redecorated Staples Center by putting up large images of their own players over the space on the wall where all of the Lakers’ championship banners and retired jerseys reside, comments from the Lakers were to be expected. But most, wisely, couldn’t care less about how the Clippers…

  25. Blake Griffin sidelined with bone bruise to his left knee

    Oct 10, 2013, 10:03 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers Jordan, Griffin, and Billups watch their team lose to Memphis Grizzlies during Game 5 of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Los Angeles

    The Clippers have high aspirations this season, thanks to bolstering their star lineup with some key offseason acquisitions, as well as landing a tenured and well-respected, defensive-minded head coach with a championship on his resume. But they’ll only get as far as the team’s collective health will take them, and early in the preseason, there…
