Matt Barnes Cheap Shots Jason Smith
The Clippers brought in Matt Barnes to give the team a little extra toughness on both ends of the floor. He plays with an edge in a way that not many players do. His pure intensity can motivate the rest of his team, and I’m sure a lot of guys like to play with Barnes on their side.
That being said, he can cross the line a little bit sometimes between edgy and dirty. This shot below on Jason Smith was probably more on the dirty side:
Matt Barnes got a flagrant foul for that one, as he should have. It was off the ball, and pretty obvious. If this is what Barnes has to do every now in then to keep up his level of energy, the Clippers will probably be OK with it.
