With four minutes left in the fourth quarter, Stephen Curry got in front of LeBron James after a rebound. For Curry and his team, he got called for his final foul. That was not all for Curry because he then threw his mouthpiece and it hit a fan. Curry was really upset at that point and got ejected. Before running threw the tunnel, he calmed himself down then went back to the locker room.
Throwing his mouthpiece should not result in a suspension. Golden State head coach Steve Kerr made some really critical comments about the refs and did not care. He was really upset about 3 of the fouls that the refs called on Curry. Kerr discussed that in his post game press conference and also about Curry throwing his mouthpiece
“I’m happy he threw his mouthpiece,” Kerr said, half-joking. “He should be upset. Look, it’s The Finals. Everybody is competing out there and there’s fouls on every play. It’s a physical game. I just think that Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, you know the way we run our offense, we’re cutting through the lane, we’re a rhythm offense — if they are going to let Cleveland grab and hold these guys constantly on their cuts, and then you’re going to call these ticky-tack fouls on the MVP of the league to foul him out? I don’t agree with that.”
Kerr was really happy that Curry threw the mouthpiece because everybody is playing hard and his MVP gets called for some bad fouls. Well Kerr and Curry will be writing a check to the league today or tomorrow. Lets just hope the NBA does not do anything ridiculous to mess up an Game 7 and suspend the league MVP. Here is the full link to watch what Kerr had to say about the refs and Curry ejection.
