Matt Barnes Named Clippers Defensive Player of the Year by Fans

Lynch Archer PR client Matt Barnes, small forward of the Los Angeles Clippers, was honored this week by the LAC organization as a standout player. The Defensive Player of the Year award goes to Matt, who will be a free agent this summer, and who ended this past season on a positive note with 30 points in the playoff game against the Memphis Grizzlies.

 

From the Clippers website:

Barnes, who signed a one-year deal with the Clippers last summer, was a key to the frenetic defense that led the NBA in steals. He averaged 10.2 minutes in the fourth quarter, second on the team to Jamal Crawford’s 10.5, and averaged a steal per game. He was excellent at funneling ball-handlers to the back line of the defense, was tenacious, tough and exemplified the “defense leads to offense” philosophy the Clippers often talked about with his seemingly endless stamina, running the floor on steals and misses.

In March, former Clippers head coach Vinny Del Negro said, “He does a nice job running the court. He has a good edge to him on the defensive end. He rebounds the ball pretty well, at a pretty good rate for his position. He just brings a lot to the table.”

Barnes is as tough as they come.
