Barnes fined $25K Sunday incident against Wolves


Matt Barnes has had his fair share of trouble on and off the court.

In November, he was ejected for shoving Thunder' center Serge Ibaka, which led to a furious tweet from Barnes after the game. In 2012, he was arrested for an outstanding warrant, an incident during which he used a derogatory term towards an officer.

Yesterday, Barnes was ejected for this hard foul on Kevin Love in Los Angeles 120-116 overtime win over the Clippers.

Today, Barnes was fined $25,000, not for the foul, but for failing to leave the court in a timely manner.

The foul was also downgraded to a flagrant one foul, a level below the flagrant two that got Barnes ejected.

LA head coach Doc Rivers still doesn't understand the ejection, saying he received no explanation about why Barnes was tossed.
