Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr was unhappy with a foul away from the ball during the second quarter of the team’s Western Conference Finals game against the Dallas Mavericks.
With 7:42 left in the second quarter, the Mavericks were taking the ball out of bounds. Mavericks forward Davis Bertans was trying to break away from Warriors guard Damion Lee and the referees called a foul. Bertans went to the line for free throws, upsetting Kerr.
The TNT broadcast panned to Kerr on the sideline who was yelling at the officials after the foul.
“You’re gonna call that? It’s the f—ing playoffs!” he said.
WARNING EXPLICIT LANGUAGE
Dallas was leading the game 48-34 at that point.
Bertans and Lee got tangled up earlier in the quarter.
Bertans was in the corner being guarded by Lee when he shot and made a three-pointer. Lee came down on top of Bertans as he shot the ball. As Bertans was trying to get back up, Lee was on top of him and the two got wrapped up in each other.
The referees stopped play and went to the replay monitor to decide whether anything nefarious occurred during the incident. The referees and players separated Bertans and Lee in the midst of the tense moment.
For whatever reason, the referees assessed a double technical foul.
Golden State came into Friday night, leading the series 1-0.
