Klay Discusses His Historic Night
“Back in the day, playing with Kevin and Steph, I mean, you had to scout for them, and luckily PG wasn’t on me that night. He had his check KD. It was just one of those days where everything felt great. I had 40 in the first half. That’s hard to do, but I was getting good looks the whole night playing within the offense.
The Unforgettable Display
In December of 2016, Thompson delivered an astonishing performance that shook the NBA world, scoring 60 points against the Indiana Pacers in a mere three quarters. The five-time All-Star made 21 of his 33 field goal attempts, sank eight of 14 shots from beyond the arc, and converted 10 of 11 free throws, ultimately leading the team to a 142-106 victory.
Acknowledging his Teammates’ Contributions
Furthermore, the presence of superstar teammates Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant cannot be understated. Thompson recognized the impact of their shooting abilities, making the 2017-2018 Warriors a formidable force on the court. Klay frequently benefited from the gravitational pull created by Steph and KD, thriving in a fast-paced, spacing-focused offensive system.
