Steve Kerr slams clipboard, loses mind, ejected vs Blazers

Steve Kerr ejected vs Blazers

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was ejected after completely losing his mind during the fourth quarter of Wednesday night's loss in Portland.

It happened with 3:54 remaining in the game as the Trail Blazers held a 110-103 lead over the Warriors. The referees reviewed a Draymond Green foul and changed it to a flagrant one. Kerr clearly did not like the call and slammed his clipboard down on the ground, leading to his first technical foul. Kerr then had some choice curse words to say, which caused the ref to give him his second technical. Kevin Durant had to hold back Kerr and guide him back to the Warriors bench, but it was much too late.

The Warriors went into the tank as they were outscored 19-4 after Kerr's ejection, including five points from foul shots stemming from the fouls on Green and Kerr. The Blazers beat the Warriors 129-107.

Kerr was ejected from a preseason game prior to the start of the regular season, but was a lot calmer then, actually mocking the referees for tossing him. Things played out a lot differently this time around.
