Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry and head coach Steve Kerr have each been fined $25,000 for separate incidents stemming from Thursday's Game Six of the NBA Finals, the league announced on Friday.

Curry, the National Basketball Association's most valuable player, was fined for hurling his mouthpiece into the Quicken Loans Arena stands after fouling out in the fourth quarter of a 115-101 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers that set up a climactic Game Seven.
