Steph Curry Gets Ejected From Warriors vs Grizzlies Game After Throwing Away His Mouthpiece In Frustration

Steph Curry, the star point guard for the Golden State Warriors, was dismissed from the game against Memphis on Wednesday night for just the third time in his career.

Curry threw his mouthpiece in anger after becoming irritated with teammate Jordan Poole for making a poor shot choice with the game on the line.

Officials immediately removed the star guard from the contest as a result of this.

Given what was at stake at that point in the game, Curry was clearly baffled and frustrated by the call.

It's possible that the referee was only following the letter of the law.

However, most fans would concur that officials should try to avoid making any game-changing decisions in the closing minutes of close games.

Curry's ejection was made all the more puzzling by the fact that the game was a highly anticipated national television matchup between two teams with a developing rivalry.

Curry finished the game with a game-high 34 points, two rebounds, three assists, two steals, and four made 3-pointers on 52.6% shooting despite being ejected.

All-Star point guard Ja Morant led Memphis with 29 points, four rebounds, 12 assists, two steals, and 50.0% shooting.
