Now-a-days everybody wanna talk like they got somethin’ to say
But nothin’ comes out when they move their lips
Just a bunch of gibberish
And motherfuckers act like they forgot about Klay
Sorry, I had to do that. With Steph Curry and Draymond getting so much love and credit for the Warriors record start, Klay doesn’t get named dropped as much as he should. After scoring 20+ in the past 4 games, Klay reminded people how good he his when he exploded for 39 points with 10 3-pointers during Tuesday’s shootout with the Pacers.
“It was one of those nights where I got a lot of great looks. Going in, I felt great,” Thompson said. “I felt like I was due for a game like that.”
He also had 7 rebounds and 6 assists in 34 minutes but got a big scare when he rolled his ankle during a monster 4th quarter by the Pacers: Indiana outscored the Warriors 40-20 in the final session.
“We’ve got to handle the end of the game better. We had a double-digit lead,” said Curry who had 29 points and 10 assists. “You don’t ever want to have to win the game twice or even three times. You want to make things as easy as possible when you have a night like we did for 36 minutes.”
The Warriors are now 23-0 and Thompson joined Curry and JR Smith as the only players in NBA history with multiple games with 10+ 3-pointers.
