Basketball fans know the intensity of the game can bring out a lot of powerful emotions. And sometimes those powerful emotions manifest themselves in the form of curse words. 

Golden State Warriors player Steph Curry was feeling it during game three of the Western Conference finals on Sunday, May 20. Curry and company beat the Houston Rockets 126-85 at the Oracle Arena. 

During the game, Curry dropped a timely F-bomb heard around the world. The great three-point sniper drove up the lane and flipped in a one-hander adding to his 35 point total.  

“This is my f****** house!” Curry shouted after crushing a Rocket defender. Then, the chef broke out the shimmy.

But his celebration was shortlived. Curry's mom, Sonya Curry, saw what he said on live TV, and she wasn't pleased, ESPN reported.

“She already sent me two home videos, showing me the clip and playing it back,” Curry told ESPN. “She was telling me how I need to wash my mouth out, saying to wash it out with soap. It’s a message I’ve heard before. She’s right. I gotta do better. I can’t talk like that.”

Teammate and NBA star Kevin Durant did not feel the same way. Instead of chastising his fellow Warrior, he endorsed the behavior because it is so out of character for Curry with a simple "f*** yeah."  

Usually mama knows best, but when it comes to a little profanity in heated moments like this, it might be up for debate.
