In the 4:22 remaining in the 4th quarter with the Golden States trailing 99 – 87, season MVP Stephen Curry draw his sixth personal foul after reaching the ball from LeBron James. After the call, he argued with referee Jason Phillips and “accidentally” threw his mouthpiece at a fan sitting courtside near the Cavaliers bench.
The leagues reigning MVP cleared that the incident was not really his intention. He said. “I’ve thrown my mouthpiece before. I usually aim at the scorer’s table. I was off aim. Definitely didn’t mean to throw it at a fan,” Curry added “That was obviously not where I was trying to take my frustration out.”
Here are some popular incident in the league:
In October 2015, Clippers guard Austin Rivers was fined $25,000 for throwing a seat cushion into the stands and hitting a fan.
In December 2014, Utah’s Enes Kanter was fined $25,000 for throwing his mouthpiece into the stands.
And the most popular, Haslem, in 2006 first-round game against Chicago, threw his mouthpiece in frustration toward referee Joey Crawford.
Like all on-court incidents, the NBA will conduct a investigation with Curry and determine if a fine or suspension is warranted.

LeBron James did all the scrubs on the floor to keep the Cavaliers’ dream alive, extending the series to Game 7 with a tight 3-3 standing as they came back from a 3-1 hole against the Warriors.
The Cavaliers went to a good start with 6-0 forcing the Warriors to call for a timeout. But it did not falter the Cavaliers’ momentum as they continued to cruise on offense blowing the Warriors out on scoring until they led by 20 with a 31-11. It was the lowest scoring in an opening quarter for the Warriors since the 2015-2016 season started.
Drastic Changes were made in the second half. Richard Jefferson has turned to be an important role player for the Cavs, making most of his contributions on the floor. It was also a rare scene for Tyronn Lue to enter Mo Williams on the court, especially in the midst of playing a Finals game. Williams also contributed with 4 points in just 6 minutes of action.
The Warriors knocked on the door of the Cavs as they came back with a spark from Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. But it wasn’t enough, because LeBron James was overpowering in the fourth quarter, finishing at the end with a shy triple-double of 41 points, 8 rebounds, 11 assists and making his presence felt on the defensive end with four steals and three blocks.
Game 7 is scheduled on Sunday at Oracle Arena.

same area, but got away with it.

After the game, Green said during the interview that he have a strong belief that if he played Game 5, they’ll win. But he didn’t, because he has put himself in a situation where he wasn’t able to play.
Green moves on from the suspension looking forward on closing out the series in Game 6 at Cleveland.
