Some shots were fired yesterday in the ESPN studios. Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Pat Beverley was a guest on the show 'Get Up', which is co-hosted by former NBA player J.J. Redick. 

During the show, Pat Beverley heavily criticized Chris Paul for his lack of performance in the series that the Suns lost to the Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference semifinals. 

Those comments, though, didn't sit well with Matt Barnes, another former NBA player and now an analyst for ESPN.

Barnes, during ESPN Today, called Beverley a clown for his comments regarding Chris Paul, saying that the Minnesota Timberwolves guard was way out of the line. 

"I feel like what Pat Beverley did today to Chris Paul was completely disrespectful and out of the line", Barnes said during the show. 

"Beverley is talking like he's that guy, well, you're not that guy, plain and simple", Barnes continued. "Chris Paul played terrible in this series and his numbers are still better than your career numbers have ever been". 

"All he needed was the red clown nose cause he was out there talking like a clown today", Barnes said of Beverley. "CP3 is a legend of this game, we were role players in this game, so have some respect for the guy. He played terribly but he'd be the first to tell you that, Bev's comments were out of the line".
