Just before the Warriors officially lost the game in Memphis on Saturday night, their superstar point guard lost his cool.
After not getting a foul call with 43 seconds left in the game, Steph Curry chucked his mouthguard in the direction of referee Scott Wall in a fit of rage reminiscent of Game 6 of the 2016 NBA Finals.
Wall immediately ejected Curry, who continued to argue with the officials.
After the game, Curry wanted to make it clear he wasn't trying to his Wall with his mouthguard.
"If I tried to throw it at him and hit him, I've got a pretty good aim," Curry said told reporters after the game. "I've thrown my mouthpiece plenty of times and thrown it on the floor. Probably not the best thing to do, but I've done it. I own up to it.
"If I was trying to throw it at him or hit him, I would have been able to executed that."
Curry explained why he reacted the way he did.
"That last play, I thought I got fouled. My frustration boiled over, did something stupid, deserved to get kicked out and that's what happened. Obviously learn from it and try not to do it again," Curry told reporters.
Now Curry and the Warriors wait to see if the NBA will suspend or fine him. He has an expectation of what the punishment will be.
"Don't think it will be a suspension or anything. My pockets will be a lot lighter," Curry said after the game.
