Steph Curry and his signature mouthguard have landed in hot water recently after the Warriors game against the Memphis Grizzlies on Staurday night.

The Grizzlies were surprisingly in the lead 107-99 with a minute left in the game, when Curry drove into the key and dropped in a layup. Curry felt as though he may have been hit on the way up, and during his complaints to the ref -- Curry was also hit on the previous possession that also resulted in a no-call -- threw his patented mouthguard at the official.

Curry has been known to throw his mouthguard in the past when frustrated, including in the 2016 NBA Finals, where he also ghot ejected.

After the game, the two-time MVP suspects he'll avoid a suspension for the incident, but knows he'll definitely be getting a fine.

Steph was also adamant he wasn't throwing the mouthguard at the referee instead throwing it in frustration, because, let's face it, he's a much better shot than that.

Curry was at odds with officials all night in Memphis, as he racked up four fouls in the first half alone, and was severely limited in terms of minutes on the court, which partly explains the loss they faced at the hands of the Grizzlies, not to mention Kevin Durant was also ejected after getting up into the ref's face during Curry's tirade.

Curry being Curry though, he did apologize after the game for his actions.

Even if Curry is one of the most likable players in the league today, every NBA player has bad days. Steph just needs to learn how to stop throwing his mouthguard at officials is all.
