The NBA fined Curry $50,000, saying in a release that Curry threw his mouthpiece "in the direction of a game official" before getting ejected with 43.6 seconds remaining of Saturday's loss in Memphis.

Kevin Durant was also ejected when he joined Curry in arguing with the officials, but the league didn't announce discipline for Durant.

Gasol is averaging 48.0 FanDuel points per contest through his first two games.

Obviously frustrated for multiple reasons, Curry launched his mouthpiece at a referee late in the quarter on the road, and got booted from the game for his efforts.

The Grizzlies (2-0) bench outscored the Warriors (1-1) bench 41-18. Curry was tossed for throwing his mouthpiece at a ref and Durant was thrown out for something he said to a ref.

Now, fans will have to wait and see if Curry will be punished, or even suspended, for launching the mouthguard at the referee, or if it'll be brushed off to the side like the last time the incident occurred. It turns out he was just reminding them he's finally a champion and actually pointed toward his ring finger.

According to Roser, Curry also threw his mouthpiece at one of the referees on the court, a move that has drawn similar ire from other officials in recent years in the National Basketball Association. "I hope to be out there playing tonight and help my team get a win". I thought I got fouled, and my frustration boiled over.

Curry also took to Twitter to issue a short statement.
