The heat check of the night goes to Cavs’ Kyle Korver and the Warriors’ Klay Thompson.
Korver’s heat check came on special night that saw him knock down 6 of 8 from downtown and become just the 7th player in NBA history with 2,000 3-pointers.
Thompson’s heat check came during a ridiculous 3rd quarter that saw the Warriors outscore the Kings 42-15 and Thompson outscore the Kings 17-15. I’m not sure what it is about the Kings and 3rd quarters but Klay seems to love playing in them – remember in 2015 when he dropped 37 in a quarter against the Kings?
