SACRAMENTO — Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was ejected after berating a referee during Monday night’s game against the Kings at Golden 1 Center.
With 1:14 left in the the second quarter, Kerr appeared to scream “Wake your [expletive] up” toward official Jason Goldenberg. On the previous possession, Kings point guard De’Aaron Fox was awarded an And-1 after making a layup despite seemingly being fouled before his shot attempt.
Kerr was assessed consecutive technicals, resulting in his ejection. It is the third career ejection in Kerr’s five-year coaching career, and his second in Sacramento.
