Kerr: Warriors now in 'the real NBA' after dream
1:43 AM ET
SAN ANTONIO — After a third straight loss and fourth in five games, Steve Kerr admitted the Golden State Warriors are going through their toughest regular-season stretch in his four-plus years as coach.
“Oh, yeah,” Kerr said after the Warriors fell 104-92 to the San Antonio Spurs. “But I’ve had a dream run for four and a half years. We’ve had such a charmed existence the last four seasons. This is the toughest stretch we’ve been in.
“This is the real NBA. We haven’t been in the real NBA the last few years. We’ve been in this dream. And so now we’re faced real adversity and we got to get out of it ourselves.”
The Warriors have lost four of their past five games, but they see this as an opportunity to come together.
LaMarcus Aldridge had 24 points and 18 rebounds as the San Antonio Spurs fended off a late rally to beat short-handed Golden State 104-92 on Sunday night, extending the Warriors’ skid to three games.
