Matt Barnes Ejected for Blow to the Face

Last night the Los Angeles Clippers made their first stop on their 8-game Grammy road trip and it was an eventful one to say the least.  After a few testy interactions between the two teams, it got quite heated in the second quarter when Greg Steisma set a hard pick on Matt Barnes and he felt that it was a blindside hit where he extended his arms.

You can tell he immediately took exception to the screen because he turned around instantly and went straight for the jugular of Steisma, after which he received a Flagrant 2 foul and was ejected for the second time this season. 

You could see the play right here and be the judge: will Barnes get suspended or will the NBA allow him to play Friday night in Toronto?
