Warriors’ Klay Thompson Discusses Big Night

Published

on

Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson broke out of his early season slump in a major way on Monday night, by draining 14 treys en route to 52 points in 26 minutes , breaking the NBA record set by his teammate Steph Curry.

“I just knew I was due for a big night,” Thompson said, according to ESPN’s Nick Friedell. “I just knew it.”

“It’s the best feeling,” Thompson said of his locked in shooting performance “Something I haven’t felt in the first six, seven games. To snap out of a slump with the record, I couldn’t ask for a better way to do it. And I’m just going to continue this momentum on Wednesday, and it’s one of the best feelings in basketball when you touch the ball and feel like it’s going in every time.”

Thompson credited his teammates, and the system they play in, for being able to accomplish the feat.

“I really believe, I don’t know if I would have been able to break the records I have got in my past, just like tonight, without the system I play in or the team I’m with or the guys I play with,” Thompson said. “Because they knew even before I went out for the second half. Steph looked at the box score and said, ‘Go get it.’ And that just shows you the unselfishness that is within him. Same with KD and Draymond and DJ and everyone else that was out there on the floor trying to find me and get me good looks.”

Golden State Warriors big man DeMarcus Cousins isn’t worried that his return to the court, and debut with the team, will cause the team to miss a beat due to their work ethic, and team IQ.

Cousins, who ruptured his Achilles last year, was expected to return before Christmas, but is now instead continuing to rehab with the Santa Cruz Warriors in the G League.

“Of course, it will be an adjustment period coming in midseason,” Cousins said, according to Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated. “But it is a team full of high IQs, so we will figure it out. Once the ball goes up, it will figure itself out. I trust the coaching staff. I trust my work ethic and our ability to come together. We will see what happens.”

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr says that center DeMarcus Cousins isn’t that close to making his return to the court, and essentially his debut with the team.

“We’re not really that close,” Kerr said of Cousins’ progress, according to Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

“I don’t want this to be about: ‘Hey, we’re right there.’ We’re not right there. It’s still going to be some time. We’re going to be patient and continue to give DeMarcus the space he needs to prepare. When the time is right, we’ll have some things planned for him.”

Golden State signed Cousins to the mid-level exception of $5.3 million during the offseason.

I’ve questioned myself a lot but I’ve found a way to overcome all those bad feelings so I see the light at the end of the tunnel.”

Cousins is currently practicing with the team and is inching closer to a return to the court, where he will make his official debut with Golden State.
