Curry Gets a T
Curry got a technical in the match’s final seconds, supposedly for taunting the referees. It all came down after Green celebrated Poole’s shot, becoming his 7th technical foul this season.
To protest the absurd call, Steph taunted the refs by celebrating a DiVincenzo three with 27.6 remaining in the fourth quarter. It was his third technical for the 2022-23 season.
The Warriors faced off the Dallas Mavericks last November 29, losing the match. They will face the Chicago Bulls next on December 2.
