The Internet & Players React To Klay Thompson Scoring 60 Points In 29 Minutes
On December 5th 2016, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green combined to score 62 points in three quarters in a 142-106 blowout win over the Pacers; Green played two less minutes and had two of the 62 points. I’m just playing around Draymond and happy to see 10 in your assists column and 0 in the kicks one. But not as happy as most people, myself included, to see the hard-to-comprehend numbers in Klay’s stat sheet: 60 points in 29 minutes, 21 of 33 from the field, 8 of 14 from 3 and 10 of 11 from the charity stripe!
Unfortunately, because it was a blowout, Klay had to sit out the 4th quarter, just like his previous career-high, and didn’t get a shot at going for Kobe’s record of 81.
“Maybe. I think I could have, maybe one day I’ll have the opportunity,” Thompson said, “But 60 in 29 minutes is not too bad.”
Not bad at all no matter how you look at it…even if 60-29=31 and you probably know where I’m going with this.
Here’s what his teammates, a bunch of others players in the league and the internet thought about Klay’s historic night.
