The Golden State Warriors picked an inopportune time to have their worst night of the season.

The defending champs had a complete meltdown Thursday in a 115-101 Game 6 loss in Cleveland, and both Stephen Curry and Steve Kerr were each fined $25,000 by the NBA for their actions.

Curry lost it when called for his sixth foul, angrily tossing his mouthpiece and hitting a Cavs fan with it.

Kerr criticized the refs with an eye towards Sunday’s Game 7—Ayesha Curry was not disciplined for her written tirades, as far as we know.

From the press release:

Curry has been fined $25,000 for throwing his mouthpiece into the spectator stands.

 

The incident, which resulted in a technical foul and subsequent ejection for Curry, occurred with 4:22 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Warriors’ 115-101 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers during Game 6 of The Finals on June 16 at Quicken Loans Arena.

 

Kerr has been fined $25,000 for public criticism of the officiating during his press conference following the same game.
