Matt Barnes scores 20 points and helps hold Kevin Durant to 17 second half points as the Drew League avenged a previous loss to the Goodman League, winning the rematch, 151-144.

Among star-studded lineups, the Lakers' Matt Barnes was able to put his own stamp on a 151-144 win for the Los Angeles-based Drew League in its much anticipated rematch with the Washington DC-based Goodman League.

John Wall stole the show with 55 points for the Goodman League, followed by Kevin Durant's 50, while James Harden led the Drew League with 48. But the Drew League doesn't win without Barnes' contributions. And in classic Barnes fashion, he did more than score.

Six of his 20 points came in a late fourth quarter run where Barnes scored in the lane, got a steal, delivered an assist to teammate Marcus Banks and added another jumper to give the Drew League a 144-136 lead. He also held Durant to only 17 points in the second half.

The game marked Barnes' first competitive basketball game in more than three months.
