So the Golden State Warriors blew out the Sacramento Kings, 126-101, and it was because the Warriors outscored the Kings, 41-22, in the third quarter.
In actuality, KLAY THOMPSON OUTSCORED THE KINGS, 37-22, IN THE THIRD QUARTER:
Let’s break it down here for a minute before you watch that video again 47 times today. Klay scored 37 of his 52 points in the third. He made 13 for 13 in that stanza. NO MISSES. And out of those 13 shots? NINE OF THEM WERE THREE-POINTERS. NO MISSES. He had two other jumpers (one fading away with a defender in his face), a lay-up with Kings defenders in his way, and an alley-oop dunk.
Now if you love basketball, please watch this record-breaker again and again and again. In fact, a thousand times. Because we likely will not see this kind of performance for a long, long time.
