Former Raptor upset at Stephen Curry running on court to celebrate during play
One ex-Toronto Raptor was not pleased with Stephen Curry’s antics during Game 2 of the NBA Finals.
In the fourth quarter of the Golden State Warriors’ 109-104 win on Sunday, Curry, who was not in the game at the time, came all the way from the Dubs’ bench to celebrate a Quinn Cook three-pointer while play was still going.

In response, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Patrick Patterson, who formerly played for the Raptors, tweeted his displeasure with the sequence. He also tagged the official NBA and NBA Referees accounts calling for action.

Patterson was with Toronto for four seasons from 2013 to 2017, overlapping with current Raptors players Kyle Lowry, Fred VanVleet, Norman Powell, Serge Ibaka, and Pascal Siakam.
Curry, meanwhile, later got T’d up at a crucial moment in the game, so he probably needs to do a better job of toning down his behavior going forward.
