Two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry and head coach Steve Kerr will be a little lighter in the pocketbook, but both will be available for Sunday’s Game 7 of the NBA Finals.
The NBA announced Friday that Curry and Kerr both have been fined $25,000 for their actions during and after the Golden State Warriors‘ 115-101 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in Thursday’s Game 6.
Curry threw his mouthpiece into the stands – hitting a fan — after fouling out of the game with just over two minutes remaining.
Following the game, Kerr was critical of the officiating, claiming three of the fouls called on Curry were “absolutely ridiculous.”
The Warriors, who once led the series 3-1 and will be at home for Game 7, are trying to win their second consecutive championship. Meanwhile, the Cavaliers are trying to deliver Cleveland its first major professional sports championship since 1964.
