Klay Thompson was nothing short of brilliant in Golden State’s Game 6 win over Oklahoma City. The Warriors’ “other” star marksman went for 41 points, mostly because he was on fire from three, hitting 11 of his 18 attempts from behind the arc. He was especially great during the fourth quarter, as Thompson hit five of his six attempts from deep including one from about 10 feet behind the three-point line.
If you missed any of Thompson’s made threes, don’t worry. Someone decided to compile all of them right after the game and throw them onto YouTube. It really does show how incredible Thomson was on Saturday night, as he hit threes in a variety of ways (off the dribble, catch and shoot, etc.). Some of these are totally absurd, like the aforementioned one that he hit from another zip code and the one around the 1:20 mark, which is a few feet behind the three-point line, but is crazy because he gets the ball from Andrew Bogut and turns to shoot before even looking at the rim.
After a game like this, people will try to assign blame or credit for the way the final score shook out. So far, a lot of people have been blaming the Thunder for letting this one get away, which kind of takes away from how outstanding Thompson was all game. If he’s able to repeat this performance on Monday night, it’s hard to imagine a scenario in which the Warriors don’t move on to the NBA Finals.
