The Golden State Warriors were disappointed earlier this week when they were defeated by the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday.
It was yet another disappointing road loss for the team, who now have an 11-11 record and are 8th in the West.
The game was a close one, with the Mavericks excelling with a final 116-113 score.
If Stephen Curry wasn’t called out by the referees for traveling in the closing moments of the game, the outcome might have been very different.
Steve Kerr on the traveling violations in Tuesday's game vs. Mavs:
"All 7 of ours were definitely travels… but there were 5 or 6 other plays in the game that were definitely travels… I’m all for enforcing traveling but it has to be done all the time. It can’t be selective.”

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was a bit peeved about that call and let his opinion be known following the game.
“All 7 of ours were definitely travels,” Kerr said in the post-game press conference.
He went on: “But there were five or six other plays in the game that were definitely travels. I’m all for enforcing traveling but it has to be done all the time. It can’t be selective.”
This isn’t the first time that Kerr has ranted about the refs.
It’s totally fair for him to air his thoughts but is he just upset because his team isn’t doing as well as it should be?
Under Kerr’s Skin
Kerr’s frustration is totally understandable.
The simple truth is that refs in the NBA don’t always get it right, they are humans who make mistakes and can’t be 100% accurate all of the time.
It’s hard to see your team called out when the opponents get away with the same thing.
But that’s the nature of the game and if Kerr’s Warriors were able to build a lead over the Mavericks, then the traveling call wouldn’t have even mattered.
The problems that have been affecting the Warriors all season are much bigger than bad officiating.NEXT: 2 Players The Warriors Should Look To Acquire
