The NBA announced Friday that Golden State Warriors Coach Steve Kerr and league-MVP Stephen Curry would be fined $25,000 apiece for their roles in separate incidents involving league referees in Thursday's Game 6 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Although Curry scored 30 points, he fouled out for the first time since 2013.
The father of his wife, Ayesha, was detained by security at Quicken Loans Arena Thursday night while Curry himself was ejected in the fourth quarter of the game for arguing a call and throwing his mouthpiece, hitting someone court side. The mouthpiece struck a fan, and Curry was ejected from the game.
Lue questioned the lack of calls LeBron James was drawing after Game 4, and Kerr was not thrilled with Stephen Curry fouling out of Game 6.
NBA officials mistook Curry's father-in-law for con artist David Aminzadeh, who has become infamous for illegally sneaking his way into major sporting events, most recently when he was arrested at the 2015 NBA All-Star Game Dunk Contest at the Barclays Center.
Following her husband Stephen Curry’s ejection in the Golden State Warriors’ Game 6 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday night, Ayesha Curry tweeted the NBA had rigged the Finals for ratings.
"He never gets calls", Lue said after the game.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr backed Curry after the game before slamming officiating that he said allowed some players to be more physical than the league MVP.
