Stephen Curry Says He Didn't Mean To Throw Mouthpiece At Ref

Curry was the first to get ejected and earned his boot from the game in flamboyant and dramatic fashion, hurling his mouthpiece at an official after failing to get a call. Two of Golden State's 15 losses and one of their five home setbacks in 2016-17 came against the Grizzlies as the clubs split the four-game season series. But their poetic style of play and the effort that other teams often exert when playing them makes for an entertaining show.

After their NBA Finals win last June, the Warriors obviously had a lot of expectations for their roster heading into the 2017-18 season.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr joked about the heave after the game.

Team-mate Kevin Durant was also ejected for disputing the decision to toss Curry.

Thakore, meanwhile, said he and his supporters would formally join the Congress at a massive rally in Gandhinagar on Monday. Apart from these leaders, the Congress also hinted at forging a pre-poll alliance with Sharad Pawar's NCP.

Before Stephen Curry's ejection, foul trouble marred what could have been an incredible scoring night.

After Saturday's game, the Warriors head to Dallas to finish off their three-game road trip. Klay Thompson was the only other player to score in double digits for the Warriors, tallying 14 points on 5-of-16 shooting. The 45th overall selection from OR recorded 19 points - the most by a Canadian-born player in his first National Basketball Association game - and five rebounds, prompting teammate Mike Conley to tell reporters: "Man, somebody made a mistake not drafting (Brooks earlier)".

Jordan Bell was the first sub off the bench, coming in for Green at the six-minute mark in the first quarter.

Curry had 37 points in the contest. David West and JaVale McGee each contributed four points.
