Steve Kerr rips refs over Steph Curry fouls, is 'happy he threw his mouthpiece'

Steph Curry likely won't be the only one to get fined after Game 6.

The Golden State Warriors star was ejected after fouling out and hit a fan with his mouthpiece. That probably will cost him $25,000, and his coach can expect a fine, too, after ripping the refs' calls on Curry.

"He gets six fouls called on him, three of them were absolutely ridiculous," Kerr said. "As the MVP of the league, we're talking about these touch fouls in the NBA Finals. I'm happy he threw his mouthpiece."

Curry, who'd never been ejected before, said the meltdown isn't a sign he's crumbling under pressure heading into Game 7.

"I didn't think I fouled either Kyrie (Irving) or LeBron (James)," Curry said, recounting fouls No. 5 and 6. "It was obviously frustrating fouling out in the fourth quarter of a clinching game and not being out there with my teammates. So it got the best of me, but I'll be all right for the next game. I had some stuff I wanted to get off my chest tonight after the way the game went."
