That’s how you answer the bell, Matt Barnes.
Check out his stat line from Wednesday night: 14 points, 10 rebounds, a steal, and a block in 23 minutes.
He was all over the floor. He did a little bit of everything. He showed he’s got some fight. Even Nellie had to bow down.
“Matt was terrific,” Nellie said after the game. “I got his attention. He actually guarded some people. He got a block. I thought it was good. We talked and we laughed about it, too. … He played a terrific game and he was one of the reasons we won.”
Of course, Barnes could be just raising his value for the Warriors to ship him. He said he wants to stay, and he knows he fits this system.
But should the Warriors keep him or use his success to get something else they need? What do you think?
