WATCH: Steph Curry ejected after throwing mouthpiece at ref in loss to Grizzlies
It was an ugly finish as the Warriors fell to 1-2 on the season -- both Curry and Kevin Durant were ejected
As time wound down in the fourth quarter, Stephen Curry was irate after he thought the referee missed a foul as he drove to the basket for a layup. Curry let his frustrations be known by throwing his mouthpiece toward the official and was promptly tossed.
Kevin Durant was also ejected after Curry's outburst, putting an ugly ribbon on a substandard performance from the world champs. Here's a look at the entire sequence.
Curry insisted after the game that he was not throwing the mouthpiece at the official, but rather just tossed it in frustration.
If Curry's reaction looks familiar, it's because he did something similar in Game 6 of the 2016 NBA Finals. In that game he fired his mouthpiece into the stands, striking a fan.
He was not suspended for his actions in that game, likely because the NBA wasn't eager to suspend Curry for Game 7 of the NBA Finals. But this time, since the toss was directed toward the official and we're just three games into the season, Curry could face a fine and/or suspension from the league.
