Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry fouled out late in the Cleveland Cavaliers' 115-101 win over the defending NBA champions at Quicken Loans Arena. He was then ejected from the court after throwing his mouthpiece and unintentionally hitting a fan with it.
Curry's wife, Ayesha, turned to Twitter and voiced her displeasure with the referees' decision. ESPN's Rachel Nichols provided a screenshot:
The two-time MVP finished with a team-high 30 points before getting tossed.
Ayesha later deleted the tweet after nearly 70,000 retweets and added the following explanation:
Minutes before tipoff, Ayesha tweeted that the Warriors players' families were still on the bus in the arena parking lot and weren't being let off:
The Warriors and Cavaliers are now deadlocked at three games apiece in the Finals with the pivotal Game 7 coming Sunday.
Either the Warriors will complete the greatest season in franchise history, or the Cavaliers will win their first NBA title.
