Shooting guard Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors set a new career high in points scored. His 60 point performance came off of 21 made shots and 10 made free throws. Out of the 21 made shots, 8 of them were from beyond the 3 point line.
The Warriors fast paced offense allowed Thompson to fill the lanes in transition, resulting in layups and 3 point shots. Throughout the game, Thompson only dribbled the ball a total of 11 times. Golden State’s ball movement and down screens helped give Klay Thompson open looks. Thompson did not play in the 4th quarter because the Warriors had a large lead entering the final quarter. Thompson displayed that he is one of the best shooters in the NBA with yet another outstanding shooting performance.
