Warriors Players React to Steph Curry Hitting Referee With a Technical

Steph Curry is not usually one to complain about calls, but he was livid with the officials while playing the Clippers on Sunday thanks to several questionable calls and no-calls.

When Curry received a technical for getting in the referee’s face, a switch flipped inside him as he proceeded to take his frustrations out on the Clippers and absolutely torch them from beyond the arc.

After making a series of quickfire threes, Curry celebrated by handing the referees a technical of his own, much to the amusement of his teammates.

“That was great,” Draymond Green said of Curry exacting his revenge against the officials. “And it was deserved. You saw the play?”

“They were missing a lot of calls,” added Jordan Poole. “A lot of no-calls.”

Warriors coach Steve Kerr also addressed Curry’s memorable reaction.

“Well, I mean, he clearly got fouled,” Kerr said. “Every once in a while, he’s going to snap. He doesn’t do it often, but when he knows he’s right, the competitor in him comes out and he’ll kind of lose his mind a little bit. But it often spurs him.”

Curry was asked whether his celebration was a mock technical for the referees or a signal that Clippers coach Ty Lue might want to call a timeout.

“You can decide,” Curry said. “It’s open for interpretation.”

Curry finished the night with 33 points, five rebounds, six assists, and six steals as the Warriors beat the Clippers 105-90 and improved to a league-best 18-2
