MVP Stephen Curry and Co. have lost their touch, their poise and are in danger of seeing their historic season – and a second title – vanish.
Curry was ejected with 4:22 left after he was called for his sixth personal foul, cursed several times at an official and fired his mouthpiece into the front row, striking a fan. Afterward, he approached the fan and shook hands with him to make amends. Curry finished with 30 points but the Warriors lost 115-101 in Game 6 on Thursday.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr felt the officiating was biased against 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.”
