Clippers’ Matt Barnes not mincing words

After the Clippers fell by 17 points in Game 4, in which they were a minus-17 on the boards, Clippers forward Matt Barnes was succinct in his assessment. “We got punked,” he said.
That wasn’t exactly met with disagreement from his coach.
“Well, when you look a the rebound differential, yeah,” Del Negro said. “We’ve shown we’ve been capable doing it but you can’t do it one or two games. It’s a series, you’ve got to win four. If that’s what it takes to get those guys going, that’s fine. But at the end of the day the numbers speak for themselves. There can’t be that big of a discrepancy and expect to win.”
