I was courtside and Matt Barnes played great against Durant when he was in the game. Footage to prove

Sorry that was a link to Rudy Gay hitting a three at the end of the shot clock, great view. Below is the link to footage of Matt.

I was there too. Barnes did a great job against Durant. Barnes looked great and it was very exciting to see him be able to defend Durant with such high effectiveness.

With that being said, KD still dropped 50 (with the bulk of that coming against other defenders).

I expect Barnes to get as many minutes as Ron-Ron this year.

You didn't happen to get footage from that amazing play from John Wall did you? That was incredible. 360 spin move with a push in the back??

He would of had more minutes last year, if he didnt get hit by that damn injury. While Barnes was in the lineup our bench was quite decent, once he got injured everything fell apart.

Id say start Barnes over Artest, and only use Ron when we have a real match up issue, but I am afraid once Artest heads to the bench he will go out of shape, and go fat.

I was at that game courtside as well and I don't think Matt Barnes did anything great. He hit a couple of shots minus those 2 airballs but his defense wasn't spectacular.

Durant got the bulk of his points before the 4th. He really didn't score much at all in the second half of the 4th especially when Barnes was on him.

Hope KBLO doesn't read this but Durant torched Ariza, Barnes locked him up.

Those seats were great, and the game was great too. I took my son and we were able to make it under the bleachers to the lockers before and after the game and got tons of great photos and signatures. Some great ones like john Wall Rookie Card and Durant Rookie card signed.

I have lots of other videos I shot that night from courtside. Just click on any of the links and follow it to my channel youll find some outstanding footage there.
