OAKLAND, Calif. -- Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr was ejected early in the third quarter of Monday night's preseason game against the Phoenix Suns.

The incident came just 9 seconds into the period after Warriors guard Stephen Curry was called for his second offensive foul of the game and the Warriors' sixth. After exchanging words with referee Ben Taylor, Curry was given a technical foul.

Kerr came to the defense of his star guard, coming onto the floor to protest Taylor's whistle. Kerr was promptly ejected, and replays showed the coach telling the referees, "I don't want to be here anyway," as he continued to protest the calls.

Kerr waved at the referees on his way off the floor and then high-fived some of his players on his way back to the locker room.

Warriors forward Kevin Durant also received a technical foul in the first half.
