    Every quote, quip and sound bite spewed forth from Matt Barnes re: Fisher sounds like the ravings of a certifiable lunatic.

    Anyone think that the league should do more to Barnes? I mean, isn’t this a player continuing to say some nasty things about another team’s coach?

    Matt Barnes is crazy and I hope he stays far away from Fisher. He sounds like a man intent on doing jail time.

    I think it’s silly to fight over romantic interests, but I do love a good beef

    “Violence is never the answer, but sometimes it is.”-Matt Barnes

    Here’s hoping KP gets a tech tonight for getting up (down?) in Barnes’ face

    I’d really love to see Barnes do something stupid (though not too terrible) and cost the Grizzlies the game.

    Melo’s sitting out because the ankle’s still not right. Porzingis will start, though. And, interestingly, instead of just starting Lance at the 3, Fisher is starting a Galloway/Calderon backcourt and sliding Afflalo to small forward for openers.
