Ayesha Curry is not at all happy with the National Basketball Association.

After Game 5 of the NBA finals, the wife of Golden State Warriors’ star Steph Curry questioned the officiating at the game.

Can refs get fined?” she asked on Twitter.

On Thursday night, in the midst of Game 6, Curry lashed out in frustration again -- this time with a strong-worded statement about the league. 

Curry’s tweet, which was later deleted, was posted just after her husband was fouled out and ejected for arguing the call and throwing his mouthpiece at a fan (Steph Curry later said it was an accident and apologized to the man).

According to Yahoo! Sports, this was the first time in the back-to-back MVP's career that he'd been ejected from a game. It was also the first ejection in a Finals game in 20 years.

After deleting her tweet, Curry explained that she’d reacted “in the heat of the moment.” She said that an earlier incident with her dad had further fueled her frustration. 

According to ESPN, NBA security confused Curry's father with another man -- a con artist who had previously snuck into major sporting events. Curry's dad was reportedly threatened with arrest before officials realized their mistake.

Curry also complained about being prevented from entering the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland until 9 p.m., when the game was scheduled to start. Per ESPN, the delay may have been caused by traffic congestion.

Reacting to his wife's Twitter comments, Steph Curry said it had been "an emotional and tough night all the way around."

"When it comes to Twitter and all that, everybody says stuff where you get caught in the moment," Steph Curry told The Undefeated. "After a while, you kind of stand and calm down. Things might not be as you thought. ... I don't fault her from showing some emotion on Twitter."

The Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Warriors 115-101. The Warriors will host the Cavs for Game 7 on Sunday.
