After shootaround Monday, the two-time MVP was optimistic he would not be suspended and be allowed to play against the Dallas Mavericks. "I've thrown my mouthpiece plenty of times and thrown it on the floor". "I was frustrated because I was fouling, I thought I got fouled on the last play and the reaction was definitely a little over the top".

Curry has been apologetic about the incident. "Don't think a suspension is necessary", Curry said following shootaround on Monday. "In the grand scheme of things, it's game three, we were playing awful, I was frustrated because I was fouling and I thought I got fouled on the last play". I deserved to get kicked out, and that's what happened.

After the game, Curry took responsibility for throwing the mouthpiece but denied that he was throwing it at the referee intentionally. "Obviously, I'll learn from it and try not to do it again". Curry was the first to get ejected and earned his boot from the game in flamboyant and dramatic fashion, hurling his mouthpiece at an official after failing to get a call. "Like I said, if I was trying to throw it at him or hit him, I would have been able to execute that".
