After Clippers backup small forward Matt Barnes was ejected from the game with 6.2 seconds left in the second quarter after an altercation with Oklahoma City's Serge Ibaka, Barnes took to Twitter to express himself.

Barnes tweeted: "I love my teammates like family, but I'm DONE standing up for these ... ! All this ... does is cost me money."

A little skirmish broke out in the second quarter after Thabo Sefolosha fouled Blake Griffin, who then became entangled with Ibaka.

That’s when Barnes stepped in and pushed Ibaka, who pushed Barnes back. The two were separated, and the officials reviewed the tape to decide what actions to take.

Barnes and Ibaka were ejected from the game and Griffin was issued a technical foul.
