Stephen Curry lost his cool after picking up his sixth foul during Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.
The Warriors played from behind all game, with Curry shouldering the load offensively despite playing in foul trouble. Despite getting 30 points from Curry, Golden State was unable to seriously cut into its deficit. Frustration boiled over late in the fourth quarter when Curry was whistled for his sixth foul after making contact with LeBron James.
Furious with the call, Curry hurled his mouthpiece into the stands and unintentionally hit a fan. He was given a technical foul and ejected. He immediately apologized to the fan before heading to the locker room.
The Cavaliers held on for a 115–101 victory in Game 6. LeBron James finished with 41 points, 11 eight rebounds and eight assists to power the Cavaliers and turn in one of his greatest playoff performances.
