Matt Barnes received a two-game suspension by the NBA on Monday for his love triangle feud with Knicks coach Derek Fisher back in October.
As first reported by The Post, Barnes drove 95 miles in a fury on Oct. 3 to confront Fisher over his romance with Barnes’ estranged wife, reality star Gloria Govan.
“Barnes went crazy. He got in his car and went to the house and went after Fisher,” a source said. “Matt then drove down there to beat the s–t out of him.”
The confrontation turned physical, and the two men — former teammates on the Lakers — briefly scuffled. Cops were called to the scene in Redondo Beach, Calif., but no charges were filed.
The NBA cited Barnes for “engaging in a physical altercation with and threatening” Fisher.
Barnes is expected to serve the suspension immediately, missing Tuesday’s game against the Heat and Saturday’s game at the Jazz. He will forfeit approximately $64,000 in salary. The Knicks visit the Grizzlies in Memphis on Jan. 16.
That fight cost Matt $64,000? We hope it was worth it.
