Stephen Curry and Steve Kerr are likely to each face fines after protesting officiating in the Golden State Warriors’ 115-101 Game 6 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday night. Curry was automatically ejected for throwing his mouthpiece into the crowd with 4:22 left in the fourth quarter after being called for his disqualifying sixth foul. The mouthpiece hit the son of one of the Cavs’ minority owners, who was sitting in the front row.
Curry is likely to face a fine, as is NBA precedent in these situations, and not a suspension, league sources told ESPN. “I’ve thrown my mouthpiece before. I usually aim at the scorer’s table. I was off aim. Definitely didn’t mean to throw it at a fan,” Curry said. “That was obviously not where I was trying to take my frustration out.”
