UPDATE: Ron Artest has been suspended for Game 3 against the Dallas Mavericks.

Ron Artest took out his frustration on Dallas' J.J. Barea in the final minute of the Los Angeles Lakers' Game 2 loss to the Mavericks on Wednesday night. Lamar Odom went over to defend Barea as the Mavericks reserve guard dribbled the ball up the court. That is when Artest rushed over and inexplicably clotheslined Barea and was immediately ejected. Charles Barkley said during the TNT postgame show that Artest will get suspended for the hit. Scroll down to watch the video.
