Tweet of the Night: Trevor Ariza not happy about $2,500 fine after getting into it with Stephen Curry

Don’t heat up the Curry because it can cost you if you do. Well, if your name is Trevor Ariza, that is. Literally. During a not-so-competitive game between the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets on Wednesday in which the Warriors were up by as many as 30 points, things got rather tense between Stephen Curry and Ariza in the third quarter.
