The Golden State Warriors have been having a tough season this year right after winning the NBA title. The defending champs were expected to be one of the best teams at the start of the season as many believed that the dynasty period was back. However, injuries have swamped the Warriors’ locker room, especially for their key players. Stephen Curry is the latest superstar to suffer a serious injury.
The 4x NBA champ is still on the sidelines after a left leg injury. With that said, Klay Thompson and the other players have been expected to step up for the Warriors. And they have done extremely well with that too. Klay recently made NBA history with a phenomenal performance for The Dubs in their last game.
NBA fans react to Klay Thompson’s sensational performance against the Oklahoma City Thunder
The Golden State Warriors faced the Oklahoma City Thunder in their last game. Klay and Jordan Poole were the standout players for GSW on the night. Big Smokey put up 42 points, 3 assists, and 1 rebound that day. However, what was astonishing was how he managed to achieve this extraordinary feat. Thompson made 12 three-pointers against OKC in that game. That was only his second-most in his entire NBA career as well.

Another impressive feat that Klay achieved is that he became only the second player in NBA history to have multiple games with at least 12 three-pointers. The other player? Klay’s Splash brother; Stephen Curry. It was certainly a sight to behold for Warriors fans, who took to Twitter to express their opinions on Klay’s performance. Among those was a tweet from a fan, who wrote, “[That’s] vintage Klay right there.”

Might be the 2nd best pure shooter ever. Right behind Steph. It’s a shame he had to deal with the injuries.

There were a group of fans who mentioned the injuries that Klay had to deal with along the way. For those who don’t know, Thompson has had it pretty tough with the injuries, despite winning 4 NBA titles with the Warriors. One of the major injuries Klay suffered was a ruptured Achilles. A while ago, he even mentioned that it was hard to play the game after dealing with so many obstacles. However, it sure looks like Thompson might be slowly getting to his very best, and Warriors fans can only be excited to see how it plays out when Steph returns from injury.
