36 points in 34 minutes is impressive. 22 in 11 minutes is a lot more impressive.  On Tuesday against the Kobe-less Lakers, Klay Thompson went off for 22 of his 36 points in the opening quarter which included 4 3-pointers.

Since the Warriors blowout loss to the Mavs last week, Klay has scored 30+ in 3 of those 4 victorious games. The Warriors now have a 33-2 record.

“It’s unbelievable,” Thompson said of the start. “It’s honestly surreal. 33-2 is tough to do in high school, let alone the NBA.”
