On Wednesday night, the Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr elected to start Matt Barnes in the starting lineup over rookie Patrick McCaw. He played 26 minutes in the NBA contest.
Barnes had just three points on 1-of-3 from the field. He also had five rebounds, four assists and two turnovers.
He gave the Warriors an experienced NBA player over McCaw to battle against Kawhi Leonard. He had a team-high 19 points despite going 7-of-20 from the field for the Spurs.
The Warriors defeated the Spurs 110-98 at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas. This was Barnes third start with the team in 15 games, where the 37-year-old, who is in his second stint with the team, is averaging 5.7 points and 4.6 rebounds in 19.7 minutes per game.
It’ll be interesting to see how Kerr will handle who will start at small forward moving forward. Kevin Durant, who was the team’s starting small forward prior to his injury against the Washington Wizards, is expected back soon.
KD could be back within the next week to ten days.
