After losing their season opener against the Houston Rockets, the Golden State Warriors suffered their second loss of the season against the Memphis Grizzlies last night, but a lot more damage could still be to come from that game.
Late in the game, Steph Curry was ejected from the game alongside teammate Kevin Durant. The point guard wanted a foul on him late in the game but did not receive one, resulting in him getting so frustrated that he appeared to throw his mouthpiece at the official Scott Wall, leading to his ejection.
Durant then got ejected himself after he rushed over to have words with Wall himself. As he left the court, it looked like he flipped off the crowd but it turned out he was actually pointing at his ring finger as a sign that he has a championship to his name.
After the game, Curry's teammate Draymond Green and Warriors head coach Steve Kerr provided some sarcastic reactions to what happened on the court during the team's 111-101 loss to the Grizzlies.
Green seemingly joked about the ejections, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes, as he vowed that he would have a word with both of his ejected teammates to make sure incidents like this don't happen again in the future.
The power forward said: "We had two guys get ejected, which was unacceptable. If we're going to win, have a possibility at winning another championship, guys can't be getting ejected like that.
"So, I've got to talk to those two guys and let them know that we need those guys on the floor and then maybe we can win a game. But right now, we're not that good because people are getting ejected."
Kerr jokingly disagreed with Curry's comments that he should only be fined for the incident and not suspended, as the head coach said, according to The Athletic's Anthony Slater, that the two-time MVP should be suspended for a couple of games.
He said with a smile: "Should be suspended 10 games ... endangered thousands of people."
The point guard shouldn't really receive anything more than a fine for his actions, but if he were to receive a ban, it might do more harm to what has already been a disappointing start to the season for Golden State after two losses from their opening three games of the season, with the other loss coming in the season opener against the Rockets.
