Klay Thompson Scores a Record 37 Points In 3rd Quarter

Golden State Warriors guard and other half of the Splash Brothers combo Klay Thompson went off like never before last night. Dropping a career-high 52 points, and 37 of those game in the freakin’ third quarter. If you’re wondering, the answer is no. Nobody has ever done that before.

“It was kind of a blur,” Thompson said. “I wish I could go back and enjoy it some more, but moments like that go by really fast. It’s something I’ll never forget and something I’ll tell my grandkids about one day. My teammates kept saying they wanted to see the show,” Thompson said, “and when your teammates have confidence like that, you can do extraordinary things.”

“I was one of the luckiest NBA players ever to play with Michael Jordan, Tim Duncan and David Robinson — some of the greatest players ever. As many spectacular things that Michael did, which he did nightly, I never saw him do that,” Kerr said. “It was reminiscent of Michael, because it was sort of otherworldly. That’s what made Michael special: He would do things that seemed impossible, things that human beings can’t do.”
