Memphis Grizzlies wing Matt Barnes joined SportsNation on Tuesday, and didn't hold back when asked about Oklahoma City Thunder big man Serge Ibaka, with whom Barnes feuded while with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Them's, quite literally, fighting words! Ibaka noticed this, and fired back -- although he didn't seem to be overly concerned with Barnes' semi-challenge to a fight.

Clippers, Thunder scuffle

Serge Ibaka and Blake Griffin have a bit of a history, so it's no surprise that an innocuous bit of contact between the two turned into a dust-up during the Clippers' win over the Thunder on Wednesday night. As scuffles go, it wasn't terribly vicious -- the worst that happened was Ibaka bringing his hand back like he was going to throw a punch but never actually throwing said punch -- but it did result in ejections for Ibaka and Matt Barnes and a technical foul for Griffin. Barnes actually tweeted during the third quarter after being ejected, but we can't repeat what he said.
