Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry has been fined $50,000 for throwing his mouthpiece in the direction of an official late in the fourth quarter of his team’s loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday night, the NBA announced on Monday afternoon.

The $50,000 fine is the maximum allowed per league rules based on that action. Warriors forward Andre Iguodala was also fined $15,000 for yelling at the official.

Kevin Durant, who was also ejected near the end of the Grizzlies game, wasn’t fined after flashing his ring finger at the crowd.

Asked about the incident, which led to an ejection, after the game, Curry said he was just “frustrated.”


“I thought I got fouled and my frustration boiled over, did something stupid, deserved to get kicked out.”
