The best match of Klay Thompson’s second life
Donovan Mitchell’s historic performance trumps all others. But Clay Thompson this new lunatic was one of the biggest men of the NBA evening. Against the Falcons, the Warriors back had his best game on Jan. 9, 2022, almost a year after returning from serious injuries that sidelined him for more than two seasons.
” He turned shot after shot, move after move. He was amazing “, his coach Steve Kerr can qualify. His player started very strong in the first quarter, making four award-winning baskets. In the second, he decided to close to the circle before sending a 3-pointer in the third move for 2.
But as the game went into not one, but two overtime periods, the Splash Brother continued to shoot and add to his tally. ” It’s more than positive, it’s incredible. The moments when you have the ball, the line of scrimmage, and your teammates trust you, are what you really live for as a competitor, a basketball player. During rehabilitation, it was sometimes difficult to see them “, convinces the back, who is determined to grab the first stretch, then the second.
After talking with American football player Damar Hamlin at the press conference, he also says that he had the opportunity to discuss with Dominique Wilkins before the match. ” I told him how much of an inspiration he was to me “Klay Thompson talks former Falcons star who remains a reference when it comes to coming back from Achilles tendon rupture.
First 50-point game since 2018 record
Last night, his personal injuries seemed far away, as he finished with 54 points (21-of-39 shooting, including 10-of-21 from 3-point range), 7 rebounds and 3 assists for 44 points. That’s 6 points shy of his career high of 60 in 2016. But it’s his first 50-point game since October 2018, the night he grabbed the Bulls’ 3-pointer record (14) .
” Even after a great first round, you don’t go into the locker room and say, “Damn, I’m going to try to put up 40 or 50.” You let things happen naturally. I think I did tonight. I had good shots, good 2-point and 3-point percentages. I took a lot of hits, but luckily I scored more than 50% and we’re going with the win, that’s the most important thing. But at halftime I don’t tell myself that I have to score 50 points, I played my game “, the shooter gives.
This last match” a huge achievement, absolutely huge “. He is also sure that a few months ago he would not have been able to put in such an effort, putting such energy on both sides of the field. Today he feels good, better and better physically, and he feels good in his head.
” I am more relaxed than before (of the season). This kind of match proves that I’m still good. It’s going so fast that we’re almost halfway through the season. I only have one year left on my contract after this season. That’s why I enjoy every day with this Warriors jersey behind me. It’s an incredible position to be the ultimate champion with the brand we’ve built here. I have to remind myself every day that I’m living a dream, the most important thing is to have fun and play hard. Numbers and big games to come “the hero of the evening finishes.
