Klay Thompson scored 54 points to lead the Golden State Warriors to a 143-141 double-overtime victory over the Atlanta Hawks. Klay made 10 3-pointers during his season-high 54-point effort vs. Atlanta on Monday, his second highest scoring game of his career. With Steph Curry out with his shoulder injury the Dubs have needed every bit of his scoring punch to help keep this long home stretch so competitive and so successful.
The Warriors are riding a season-best 5 game winning streak defending their home court at Chase Center and Klay is a big reason why. Can all the haters stop bagging on him already and move on? Yes, it has taken some time for Klay to get his sea legs back him, but he is getting better and stronger each and every week. Klay has plenty of gas left in his tank and he’ll be ready to help the Warriors when the postseason comes.
