Warriors coach Steve Kerr criticized officiating after the Warriors’ 115–101 Game 6 loss to the Cavaliers.

After reigning MVP Stephen Curry fouled out for the first time all season, and forward Draymond Green committed five fouls, Kerr said the game’s officials called “ticky-tack fouls.”

“Three of them were absolutely ridiculous,” Kerr said of the fouls called against Curry. “He steals the ball from Kyrie [Irving] clean at one point, LeBron flops on the last one, Jason Phillips falls for that.”

The standard fine for a coach who criticizes officials is $25,000.

Game 7 of the NBA Finals is set for Sunday night at Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif.
