Golden State Warriors fans received a shock last night when both Steph Curry and Kevin Durant were ejected late in their game against the Memphis Grizzlies for their actions towards the officials of the contest.
Both Curry and Durant were angry with the referee's after they didn't give a foul on the Warriors' point guard late in the game, with the two-time MVP getting so frustrated that he appeared to throw his mouthpiece at the official Scott Wall, resulting in him being ejected from the game.
Durant then rushed over to have a couple of words at Wall as well before being ejected himself. It then appeared he flipped off the crowd as he was leaving the court but it turned out he was actually pointing at his ring finger as a sign that he has a championship ring.
The Golden State Warriors would end up suffering a 111-101 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, but these ejections happened late in the game so it didn't really affect the outcome of the contest. Still, Curry has said he fully deserved his ejection.
The Warriors star said: "That last play, I thought I got fouled, and my frustrations boiled over. I did something stupid, deserved to get kicked out, and that's what happened. Obviously, I'll learn from it and try not to do it again."
The point guard also said he didn't mean to throw his mouthpiece at the official, and he believes he should only receive a fine for his actions and not a suspension.
"If I tried to throw it at him, or hit him, then that's pretty good aim," he said sarcastically. "I've thrown my mouthpiece plenty of times and thrown it on the floor. It's probably not the best thing to do but I done it.
"I own up to it, and don't think it's a suspension or anything (but) my pockets will be a lot lighter, for sure."
Curry shouldn't really receive anything more than a fine for his actions, but if he were to receive a suspension, it could do more damage to what has already been a disappointing start to the season for the Warriors after two losses from their opening three games of the season, with the other loss coming in the season opener against the Houston Rockets.
