Steve Kerr: I didn't realise travelling was now allowed in the NBA

In what might well be a rehearsal for the Western Conference finals, the San Antonio Spurs came out on top against the Golden State Warriors last night. 

The Warriors had arguably their worst performance of the season, managing just 79 points all game - their lowest total of the campaign to date.

However, it wasn't Golden State's poor shooting or inability to get rebounds that angered Steve Kerr in the wake of the loss. Rather, the Warriors head coach seemed incredibly frustrated with the refereeing from Saturday's encounter.

With less than four minutes left on the clock and with Golden State trailing by one, Danny Green drove to the basket but looked like he clearly took an extra step as he made a left-handed layup.

No whistle was blown on the play and it left Kerr incensed, screaming for a call to be made. After the game, the second-year head coach joked that he didn't realise travelling had been made legal.

"I need to write down that travelling is now allowed in the NBA," Kerr said. "Silly me, I forgot that they got rid of that rule, so we'll have to adjust."

It wasn't the only moment in the game that made Kerr blow his top, as he was assessed a technical after having to be held back by Leandro Barbosa as he screamed at refs following a foul call in the first quarter.

We'll have to wait and see if Kerr receives any punishment from Adam Silver and the NBA for his comments.
