Klay Thompson Goes Off, Warriors Take Game 2

Klay Thompson stepped up in the absence of Stephen Curry scheduled to return from a sprained knee Saturday. With 27 points to give the Warriors a 2-0 lead in their series against Portland.

“I thought of how focused we were in that fourth,” Thompson said. “We’d been down and out before, and we weren’t playing with that good of poise in the first three-quarters. And in that fourth quarter we weren’t hunting for shots and playing stingy defense, and we were just locked in on both sides of the ball.”
