Heres What Klay Thompson Said After Doing Something For The WarriorsHeres What Klay Thompson Said After Performing Some Kind Of Good Deed
Klay Thompson says he's a fan of Will Ferrell's droll/ridiculous humorSteve Kerr wanted to stoke the Warriors' team spirit by teaming up with Will Ferrell to dress up in ridiculous costumes. Klay Thompson wore a Moon costume from Semi-Pro‚ and admitted that he loves Ferrell's droll/ridiculous humor. Klay Thompson says he also likes the Downton Abbey actor's droll/ridiculous humor.
He believes his team can win another titleAlthough the Warriors are still a long way away from winning another title‚ Klay Thompson is optimistic about their chances of capturing the crown. Despite a lack of depth‚ the team has been extremely successful without him the past two seasons. The guard is also a solid defender and has been practicing with the team at full strength. But Thompson hasn't played since suffering Achilles and ACL injuries. It will take time for him to get back into NBA shape‚ and the medical staff will probably limit his playing minutes for a few games. While the Warriors' core is aging‚ the team is ready for the challenges that come with that‚ according to Klay Thompson. In a recent appearance on ESPN's How Hungry Are You?‚ Thompson discussed how the Warriors can win another title even with an aging core. Even though the team has lost star Kevin Durant‚ the Warriors have remained a championship contender and have added several young players with promising futures. In addition‚ the team also has a strong role-player in Klay Thompson. With Klay Thompson back‚ the Warriors have a better chance of winning another championship. After two tough seasons‚ the Warriors are 15-2 and have added three MVP-caliber players. Thompson believes the team will be even better with these additions. And while he isn't back yet‚ the addition of Wiggins and Jordan Poole will help them win another title. In addition‚ Kevin Durant is excited to have Thompson back on the court.
He is a catalystThe Warriors have been searching for a point guard to replace Stephen Curry after a disappointing season. While Thompson has the talent and size to be a starting point guard‚ he also brings the ruthlessness that will force the Warriors to play simple and apply pressure to every opponent. The Warriors need someone like Thompson to lead them to the Western Conference Finals. Here are some reasons why. 1. He has the ability to change a game. During Game 6‚ Klay Thompson led Golden State to victory. He scored 41 points on 11 3-pointers and broke the NBA playoff record for 3-pointers made in a game. That lead to Golden State sweeping the Thunder. He also helped the Warriors end their two-game losing streak. Moreover‚ the Warriors will face Denver in the first round of the playoffs on Saturday. Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry are a powerful duo that can give the Warriors a victory. Despite the fact that his absence in the last game shook the Warriors' offense‚ he showed his ability to take control and get open looks. The Warriors were able to beat the Knicks‚ Bulls‚ and Sixers despite losing by double digits. It was also Thompson's first game back in two years‚ and he helped the Warriors break out of their offensive rut. In fact‚ the Warriors were so good last night that they could have won by six points.
He has been inconsistent since returningThe Warriors' second-leading scorer Klay Thompson has been inconsistent since returning to action. He scored a season-high 34 points in a game against the Brooklyn Nets last December‚ but that was only the second time he'd hit the 30-point mark this season. He's now averaging 24.5 points per game‚ shooting 47.7 percent from the field. Despite his inconsistency‚ Thompson continues to be one of the most consistent players in the league. While his overall scoring average has been disappointing this season‚ his shooting efficiency has also been a big problem. While he's averaging 18.7 points per game‚ he's shooting only 41.3 percent overall and 36.5 percent from 3-point range. His tendency to take bad shots is hurting his numbers‚ and he may find himself benched once Steph Curry returns. With the Warriors' recent success‚ Klay Thompson could be a candidate to fill in for Curry when Steph returns to the lineup. Despite a solid performance against the Sacramento Kings in the NBA Finals‚ Klay Thompson hasn't been consistent in his overall production. In fact‚ his scoring average dropped to just under 17 points in a single quarter. Before returning to the NBA‚ Thompson averaged just 15.5 points per game‚ shooting 31.9 percent from the field and 32.9% from three last season. While this might seem like a small sample‚ it's important to keep in mind that this is a very early season. Klay Thompson will most likely struggle in a few weeks.
He's a catalystIt's not clear if Klay Thompson will be the main catalyst for the Warriors' title run next season. However‚ if he is‚ he will be a key part of their success. He is a ruthless point guard who keeps the game simple. He also makes sure that every opponent feels pressure. Whether or not he plays more minutes next season remains to be seen. Thompson's emergence could lead the Warriors to a Western Conference Finals. The Warriors had their toughest test yet. The team trailed by as many as six points at halftime‚ but Thompson's performance ignited the Warriors. They ended up scoring 68 points in the second half and Thompson had an incredible night. He finished with 31 points and 11 3-pointers‚ breaking the previous single-game record of nine made 3-pointers. Russell Westbrook added 28 points for the Thunder. With Thompson leading the way‚ they are a threat to win the NBA Finals. Despite missing nearly two months of action‚ Thompson is now expected to play against the Utah Jazz this Sunday. The Warriors have been without a star point guard for a few months‚ and their fans are ready to welcome him back. Thompson will be a key piece of the Warriors' offense when the team needs it the most. However‚ there are still a few questions to answer about whether Thompson's presence is necessary. The question is‚ will Klay Thompson be able to help his teammates?
He's been inconsistent since returningKlay Thompson's season is in limbo after tearing his right Achilles tendon in a pick-up game. Although his absence has been felt‚ the Warriors have been a strong force in the Western Conference. Stephen Curry has been two-time MVP and broke the all-time 3-point mark last month. He's the betting favorite to win his third MVP award. The Los Angeles Lakers and Milwaukee Bucks‚ who won the 2019-20 NBA title‚ and Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic were two teams that won titles without Klay Thompson. Golden State is desperate for Klay Thompson's consistency. After two seasons sidelined by injury and an Achilles injury‚ the Warriors have a great chance of catching up to the Phoenix Suns. Klay Thompson's return would bolster the Warriors' chances of closing the gap with the Suns. The Warriors' chances of catching up with the Phoenix Suns have improved since Chris Paul went down‚ but Thompson's inconsistency has hindered their chances of a playoff run. While Klay Thompson has shown glimpses of his old self since returning‚ his overall performance has been inconsistent. After scoring 33 points against the LA Lakers‚ he scored seven points on 3-of-14 shooting against the LA Clippers on Feb. 14. A week later‚ he shot only 3-of-15 and went 0-of-11 from beyond the arc. If that's not indicative of his performance‚ Thompson's return is premature.
