Steph Curry, Warriors taunt officials, lose seconds later on controversial call

Stephen Curry Warriors Kevin Durant

The Warriors Pointed And Laughed At A Ref Then Lost On Free Throws In Overtime

His main beef with the outcome of the game comes down to the foul called against him which sent Towns to the free-throw line in the final second of overtime, thereby, giving the Timberwolves the win.

Kevin Durant drilled a three to knot the game at 130-130, but the officials called a pre-shot foul on Minnesota's Keita Bates-Diop, forcing the Warriors to run another play. They passed in to Kevin Durant, who raised for a 3-pointer and made it while being contacted. Curiously, the officials ruled that Durant was fouled before the shot and waived off the three points. Minnesota led by as many as nine in the fourth quarter before Golden State tied the game at 115 on Draymond Green's free throw with 21 seconds remaining. Curry got the ball in the far corner and launched a three that tied the game with 0.5 seconds left.

The officiating Friday night in Minnesota was infuriating for the Warriors, but they should lay the blame for the loss partially at their own feet, Golden State held a 14-point lead at halftime and led by as many as 18 points in the third quarter.

Tolliver, Bayless and Okogie each hit 3-pointers in overtime to help Minnesota build its nine-point advantage. I know Charlotte is an interesting situation, but we controlled the tempo from the jump.

En route to 37 points, Curry had his eighth game of 11 or more three-pointers - that's the same amount as the rest of the National Basketball Association combined in the league's history.

Health Care Fight Could End Up Being ‘Politically Catastrophic’ for Republicans
Mitt Romney (R-UT) is now pitching in on helping the Trump administration come up with an Affordable Care Act replacement. District Court Judge John Bates said that the move let those involved "avoid the most stringent requirements of the ACA".

"If that's the case that's indicative of the entire game", Curry said. At the end of the day it's one of 82, we're not going to get overblown that much.

Kyrie Irving also sealed victory with half a second to go as the Boston Celtics beat the Indiana Pacers 114-112. "And not officiating the game itself and letting emotions get in the way or whatever kind of agenda you had coming in". "And end of the game - nobody wants to see a game end like that with a insane pass that had no chance of being caught and a soft foul that should never have been called to decide the game like that".

After the game, numerous Warriors didn't hide their feelings regarding the officiating.

Bad call or not, it is worth noting that these aren't just meaningless games for the Warriors, though one could argue they are perfectly capable of turning on the engines when the playoffs come around. "Guys out there fighting their ass off to play and compete and win the game by playing basketball, so it's a tough way to go out".

"It was incredible", Kerr said of Curry's shot that tied the game at 130.
