In the final minute of Golden State’s loss in Memphis, things became unhinged after a no-call that angered Curry enough to throw his mouthpiece at a referee.
Frustrated after a no-call late in the fourth quarter, Steph Curry fired his mouthpiece at official Scott Wall and was promptly ejected in the Warriors’ 110-101 loss to the Grizzlies.
After the game, Curry denied throwing it at the referee intentionally. “I didn’t throw my mouthpiece at the ref. I got better aim than that. I threw it out of frustration,” he told ESPN’s Chris Haynes.
Kevin Durant was also tossed after barking at an official. On his way to the locker room, Durant flashed his ring finger to the crowd amid a chorus of boos.
Golden State dropped to 1-2 on the young season. The Warriors only lost 15 games last season and two of them came against Memphis.
