Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry was ejected from game 6 of the NBA Finals after he lost his temper and threw his mouthpiece at a fan at court side.
The Warriors lost back-to-back games to the red hot Cleveland Cavaliers who tied the series at 3-3 with a 115-101 win in Cleveland Thursday night.
The Warriors were trailing by 12 points with 4:22 left in the 4th quarter when Curry was hit with a technical for throwing his mouthpiece at a fan after fouling out of the game.
Curry quickly apologized to the fan who had a coveted court side seat near the Cavaliers' bench.
During the post-game interviews Warriors head coach Steve Kerr shrugged off the possibility of a game 7 suspension for his star player.
"I'm happy he threw his mouth piece, he should be upset," said the smug coach.
But the league has zero tolerance for players hitting fans or the refs. Throwing objects at fans or refs is grounds for automatic suspension for at least one game.
In the past the league has handed down one game suspensions to at least 2 players (Udonis Haslem and Amir Johnson) for throwing their mouthguards at refs.
According to sports analysts there is precedence for an automatic suspension. They say Curry will likely be suspended for game 7.
The star guard picked up a quick 2 fouls early in the 1st quarter and watched most of the 1st quarter from the bench.
He finished the game with 30 points, 1 assist and 4 turnovers.
After losing his temper and throwing his mouthpiece at a fan, Curry quickly apologized.
Cavaliers star LeBron James, who finished the game with 41 points, gave Curry fits in the 4th quarter.
Game 7 is Sunday in Oakland at 8 p.m. EST.
