A sight for sore eyes, Klay Thompson appears to have found his groove after years of not being able to suit up for the Golden State Warriors.
Since returning in January, heat checks have come few and far between for the Splash Brother. It was obvious to anyone watching that the itch to get back into form was holding Thompson back from playing his usual game.
Over his first 21 games, Thompson was shooting just 35.6% from the 3-point line and 40.5% overall.
As all great shooters do, it seems Thompson has worked his way out of this rut. He scored 30+ points in back-to-back games for the first time since 2019 and is starting to look much more like the Klay of old.
Klay Thompson appears to have found his groove and this could mean big things are on the horizon for the Golden State Warriors.
Since scoring 38 points in a dominant showing over the Milwaukee Bucks, Thompson is averaging 25.9 points while shooting 41% on over 12 3-point attempts per game. To put it simply, Klay has been on fire.
If you subtract two outlier games against Phoneix and Boston in which Klay shot 2-of-21 from deep, Thompson has nailed 48-of-101 (47%) attempts over his last 10 games
This is good news for anyone who is picking the Warriors to be a dark horse title contender. Thompson is without a doubt one of their biggest x-factors and his ability to raise their ceiling is unmatched.
The Warriors have been without Stephen Curry or Draymond Green for pretty much every game since Thompson’s return. However, Curry is slated to return for the postseason and Green is already back in the lineup.
It feels safe to assume no one in the NBA is looking forward to tackling the big three once the playoffs start. Especially, with Thompson trending in the right direction after a bumpy return to the floor.
