Matt Barnes Suspended For Trying to Enter Bucks’ Locker Room & Fight John Henson
On Thursday, the Memphis Grizzlies faced off against the Milwaukee Bucks, a game the Grizz lost by the way. As the 4th quarter was coming to an end, Bucks’ John Henson baptized Matt Barnes’ shot out of bounds and stared him down after.
Barnes wasn’t feeling that so he got in his face, both players were ejected, but Matt Barnes decided to continue the confrontation by trying to get into the Bucks Locker room and challenge Henson to a fight.
The NBA gave Barnes a one game suspension because of it:
