Matt Barnes – Top Games of 2009-10

D070800031.JPGMatt Barnes had a solid 2009-10 while playing for his seventh NBA team in as many seasons, averaging 8.8 points on 48.7 shooting with 5.5 rebounds in 25.9 minutes for the Orlando Magic (59-23).

We took a look at some of Barnes’ better games from the campaign, looking to focus on contests in which his minutes remained relatively low, because it’s likely that he will stay around or below the PT he averaged in Orlando.

Like fellow new Laker Steve Blake, one of Barnes’ better all-around games came against L.A., No. 8 on our list:

1) 11/4 vs. Phoenix: 13 pts, 11 rebs, 5 asts, 2 stls, 32 min
3) 11/13 vs. New Jersey: 13 pts, 13 rebs, 5 asts, 1 stl, 1blk, 37 min
4) 12/10 @ Utah: 17 pts, 5 rebs, 2 asts, 25 min
5) 12/16 vs TOR: 20 pts, 6 rebs, 3 asts, 1 blk, 30 min
6) 1/2 @ Chi: 23 pts, 5 3-pointers, 4 rebs, 3 asts, 30 min
7) 1/13 @ Den: 28 pts, 9 rebs, 3 stls, 37 min
8) 1/18 @ LA: 13 pts, 8 rebs, 7 asts, 2 blks, 37 min
9) 1/20 vs Ind: 10 pts, 16 rebs, 6 asts, 3 stls, 38 min
10) Mar 1 – Mar 5*: 14.6 pts, 72% FGs, 5.3 rebs, 1.0 stls, 1.0 TOs, 24 min
*Three-game stretch equaled ideal production for the Lakers in an average of 24 minutes.
