The Golden State Warriors have the best record in the Western Conference and the third-best record in the NBA heading into the All-Star break.

But that didn’t stop their head coach, Steve Kerr, from relaxing in the final moments of their game against the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night.

Because the coach went absolutely crazy on a ref with just over three minutes left in what was then a seven-point game after Draymond Green was called for a very questionable flagrant foul.

Kerr held nothing back, first with an incredible spike of his clipboard and then with a number of bad words directed at the official.

“I was just shocked it was called a flagrant foul… That was head-scratching. I told (the ref) that I ‘beg to differ,”http://www.usatoday.com/” Kerr told reporters after the game.

“I just thought it was a good, hard foul. I guess I was wrong,” Kerr added. 

The Trail Blazers ended up with many free throws out of the deal and went on to beat the Warriors 129-107.
