One of the players who can catch fire instantly and is able to beat a team almost on his own is definitely Klay Thompson. In last night’s game against the New York Knicks, Klay displayed almost a perfect shooting performance in his own style.
Klay finished the game with 43 points in 33 minutes while shooting 62 percent from the floor. It was a pure shooting exhibition on display and definitely one of Klay’s best performances this season.
Klay Thompson dropped 43 PTS tonight. He also only dribbled the ball 4 times.

It’s also important to stress out that he scored 43 points with only four dribbles which something not a lot of players can do in the league. The catch-and-shoot game is one of Klay’s biggest strengths and the Warriors system allows him to do just that.
After the game, Klay was incredibly happy about his performance and he definitely didn’t hide it when asked about it.
Klay is struggling a bit from the floor than in his previous seasons, but it seems he is slowly finding his rhythm and that is translating into wins for the Golden State Warriors. He is averaging almost 22 points per game is on pace to participate in another All-Star game.
The Warriors are currently sitting on the second spot in the western conference behind Nuggets. They are once again, back at full health and found the rhythm they were looking for.
