Klay Thompson does “Splash”! | NBA
The “Splash Brothers” are back! A big week after the highly publicized return of Klay Thompson, Stephen Curry and him took advantage of the arrival of the Pistons to find their good habits. These famous hot shots that have delighted fans for years.
» It happens quickly and they catch fire quickly. When they do, it’s virtually unstoppable observes Andrew Wiggins, still very good this night in his role of “two-way player”.
At the start, Klay Thompson missed his first two shots, but then we found the Thompson of his best years. A shot in the corner to gain confidence, and then he unrolls, accompanied by an equally skilful Stephen Curry. Just before the siren of the first half, Klay Thompson plants the 3-pointer which gives a 28-point lead. A look at his stat line: 17 points on 5-for-9 shooting, and 3-for-5 from 3-point range.
» I had a great evening! I would have liked to put a few more shots, but I just had a great evening, and it was pleasant commented the All-Star guard. » I don’t care if I miss 100 shots in a row because I won’t stop shooting. I like it too much, and I’ve worked too hard not to take it. »
« It’s already exciting to have an impact on the game »
In rhythm and relaxed, Klay Thompson reassured his fans, his teammates, but also his coach. When he and Stephen Curry took the break in the second quarter, inevitably, it brought back some good memories… “ I’m so happy to play with Steph again admits Klay Thompson. » But Draymond and Andre are still missing, and I can’t wait to find them. To be able to run and shoot with them, to defend… »
“It was great, and it was probably the best series since they played together again” notes Steve Kerr. “It was good to see him with a warm hand, and to hear the public supporting him. »
As the Warriors are on a series of seven games in a row at home, Klay Thompson will be able to work calmly, and find his bearings.
» I’m human, and when I don’t put my shots it can affect me… but I was so happy to see the ball go into the circle tonight. I’m still not completely satisfied because I’ve had some very good positions where I haven’t put in. But I will improve from the next game, and it’s already exciting to have an impact on the game. »
