it’s barely the Third time in his entire career that Stephen Curry is expelled from an official NBA gamewhich shows this time the high tension that is being experienced within the Golden State Warriorswhich has not been even the shadow of what it was in the previous edition.
Despite having obtained an important victory this Wednesday against the Memphis Grizzliesit has barely been the fourth in their last ten games, and having to come from behind to solve it on the last possession with a long distance basket from Jordan Poole.
However, the most striking moment occurred a couple of minutes before the end of the clash at the “Chase Center”, while the locals in advantage on the scoreboardwhen Poole took a perhaps rushed three-pointer that missedwhich when returning to defend, Curry has been enraged to the point of taking his mouth guard and throwing it on the court.
Something that was not forgiven by the match judges and they determined his immediate expulsion; Nevertheless, the Warriors managed to overcomecuriously with a final basket from Poole himselfforgetting his previous ruling and granting him the victory 24 to his teamwhich in turn has the same number of losses.
How much will this outburst cost Curry?
Faced with such a situation, the portal “spotrac“specialized in this matter, Curry must pay a penalty equivalent to $2,000 for his expulsionbut also a additional sum for the same amount, due to a first technical foul that he had received prior to his moment of anger.
At the end of the game and already knowing the triumph of Golden Stateit was even possible to know that Jordan Poole came to joke with “Steph” about that controversial playsomething that in the same way it was not to the liking of the four-time league champion and all-time triple leader.
“It was one of those far too quick jokes. It was still hot (because of what happened)”; was what he came to answer Curry before a alleged prank in which Poole imitated him at the moment when he threw his mouth guard.
So things, the Warriors remain in the top eight in the westbut still with a inconsistency that does not allow them to breathe easy and in which it can be said that they will go far again this season; nothing close to the latter.
