Klay Has a Day
Klay Thompson scored a game-high 42 points with 12 3-pointers made as the Golden State Warriors routed the Oklahoma City Thunder 141-114. Thompson is one of only five players in NBA history to make 12 or more 3-pointers in a game, and one of only two to do so twice:
14 — Klay Thompson (Oct. 29, 2018)
13 — Stephen Curry (Nov. 7, 2016)
13 — Zach LaVine (Nov. 23, 2019)
12 — Kobe Bryant (Jan. 7, 2003)
12 — Donyell Marshall (March 13, 2005)
12 — Curry (Feb. 27, 2016)
12 — Thompson (Feb. 6, 2023)
Thompson shot 15-22 from the field (including his 12 3-pointers made), an effective field goal percentage of 95.5%. He’s the first player in NBA history to record three 40-point games with an effective field goal percentage of at least 95%:
3 — Klay Thompson
2 — Stephen Curry
2 — Kyrie Irving
Thompson did not attempt a free throw. It’s Thompson’s third career game in which he’s scored at least 40 points with zero free throw attempts. He’s the only player in NBA history to record multiple such games.
Backcourt mate Jordan Poole scored 21 points and dished out a career-high 12 assists, shooting 8-14 from the field with five 3-pointers made. It was Poole’s first double-double of the season and just the third of his career.
Warriors starting center Draymond Green had 10 rebounds, three steals, and two blocks, picking up the 1,000th steal of his career with 6:08 remaining in the third quarter.
The Warriors made 26 out of 50 3-point field goal attempts, the second-most makes in a game in franchise history. It’s the sixth time they’ve made 25 or more 3-pointers in a game, the second-most such games recorded by a franchise (Houston Rockets, 9).
