Whether it was Doc Rivers, Chris Paul, Matt Barnes or DeAndre Jordan, the talk was about the officiating and how the Clippers felt like it was 5-on-8 at times. “It’s getting out of control, man,” Barnes said. “Some of the techs we got tonight were … I mean, we’ve got to do a better job of watching ourself, but I got a tech for saying, ‘He’s not shooting the ball.’ (Hedo Turkoglu) got a tech for saying, ‘That’s not a foul.’ I mean, this is just getting out of control, man. “They’re just whistle-happy.” Orange County Register

With his sons in the stands and some semblance of normalcy returned to his life, Barnes played his best game of the season, scoring 12 points and being far more active on defense. "To me it really doesn't matter if I start,” Barnes said. "I just want to work myself back in, whether I'm starting or coming off the bench. I've had a tough start early on, a lot of s--- off the court going on, but I'm starting to figure it out and play better, so whether that's coming off the bench or starting, it doesn't really matter to me."

"I've really made a conscious effort to cool out, and if those are technicals it's going to be a long season," he said. "Fortunately it didn't cost us, but it's crazy." Barnes' teammates came to his side over the summer and have continued to be there as Barnes deals with his divorce, trying to see his kids and dealing with early struggles on the court. “I think we do forget sometimes that we're humans,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “Things go on in your life, and if we think it doesn't affect you as a player, then we're nuts.” ESPN.com
