Frustrated after a no-call with 43 seconds left in the fourth quarter, Steph Curry threw his mouthpiece along the baseline in the direction of official Scott Wall and was promptly ejected in the Warriors' 110-101 loss to the Grizzlies.
Kevin Durant was also tossed after barking at an official. On his way to the locker room, Durant flashed his ring finger to the crowd amid a chorus of boos.
After the game, Curry denied throwing his mouthpiece at the referee intentionally.
"If I tried to throw it at him and hit him, I've got a pretty good aim," Curry said, adding he "would have been able to execute that."
Hours later, Curry acknowledged his actions reflected poorly on the Warriors.
No excuse for that! Gotta remember who I am playing for...— Stephen Curry (@StephenCurry30) October 22, 2017
Golden State dropped to 1-2 on the young season. The Warriors only lost 15 games last season and two of them came against Memphis.
