    Matt Barnes ignores pain, pushes Kings to first win at Golden 1 Center. He attributes the shots he’s taken to his torso to random misfortune, not breaking down physically as the oldest player on the roster. “I don’t even think it’s getting old,” Barnes said of the blows that left him grimacing on the court. “It’s just bad luck. I keep catching elbows for some reason but I’m all right.”
