Watch: Steve Kerr goes nuts, gets ejected over flagrant foul call
You don’t see this very often.
Steve Kerr was ejected from Wednesday night’s Golden State Warriors-Portland Trail Blazers game after losing his mind over a call.
Draymond Green fouled Zach Collins while trying to prevent a layup with Portland leading 110-103 and under four minutes remaining in the game. The referees decided to review the call and gave Green a flagrant foul for unnecessary physical contact. That decision led Kerr to lose his mind:

Kerr slammed down his board and could be seen telling official Ken Mauer the call was “f—ing bulls—.”
He was so livid that Kevin Durant had to direct the head coach away from the court to avoid further punishment.
The sequence of events helped push the game in Portland’s favor. They got five straight free throws thanks to the tech and flagrant foul calls, making all of them. Then they retained possession and made a 3-pointer to push their lead to 15.
Kerr is normally pretty composed, but when he loses his mind — usually about once a year — it becomes a show.
