OAKLAND, Calif. – Stephen Curry stopped chewing his mouthpiece, hurled it to the floor and barked at a referee in disgust after what he viewed as another non-call in Game 2 against the Los Angeles Clippers. The normally mild-mannered Curry was given a technical for his surprising tantrum.
It was Curry's first technical in his 80th total game of this season. In order to knock off the Clippers in the first round of the playoffs, Curry might need to keep the same attitude for the rest of the series.
"I was frustrated with where the score was," Curry said before Tuesday's practice at Oracle Arena. "I got hit a couple of times and didn't get a call. I'm just letting them know how I felt. We are not going to quit. We're not going to lie down and allow a team to do what they want.
"We are going to be physical. It's about that competitive fire for Game 3 that we are going to get it done and protect our home court."
