Steph Curry and Steve Kerr both fined $25,000

Curry was fined for throwing his mouthpiece into the stands after fouling out of the game late in the fourth quarter. The mouthpiece inadvertently hit a fan who was sitting courtside, and Curry was ejected from the game.

Kerr, who wasn’t too fond of some of the calls that ultimately resulted in Curry’s ejection, was fined for public criticism of officiating for comments made in the postgame press conference.

“(Curry is) the MVP of the league,” Kerr said. “He gets six fouls called on him, three of them were absolutely ridiculous. He steals the ball from Kyrie (Irving) clean at one point. LeBron (James) flops on the last one. (Referee) Jason Phillips falls for that, for a flop. As the MVP of the league, we’re talking about these touch fouls in the NBA Finals.”

He also said that although he disagreed with numerous calls made throughout the game, the Warriors — who lost the game 115-101 — were outplayed, plain and simple.

“Let me be clear, we did not lose because of the officiating,” Kerr said. “They totally outplayed us and Cleveland deserved to win. But those three of the six fouls were incredibly inappropriate calls for anybody, much less the MVP of the league.”
