Klay Thompson is a player that has been quintessential to the Golden State Warriors' dynasty. While Thompson was injured for two seasons, the Warriors failed to make the playoffs. However, once he returned to the team, they won the title for the fourth time in the last decade. Overall, Thompson is just one of those players who knows what he is doing on the court. He understands his role and he plays it perfectly. He is a three-point machine, and when he gets hot, there is no stopping him.
Although he had a rough start to the season, Thompson has come into his own. Of course, this is great for the Warriors who are in the midst of a playoff bid. Klay always seems to step up his game when the playoffs roll around, and that is exactly what happened last night. The Warriors were playing against the Phoenix Suns, who are one of the best teams in the league right now. However, the Warriors popped off with an 11-point victory. Moreover, Thompson was the star of the show thanks to a 38-point performance. Thirty-three of those points came in the first half.

As you can see below, fans had nothing but good things to say about the Warriors legend. "Steph about to turn 35. Klay just turned 33. Dray just turned 33. Appreciate them while you still can," one user said. Moreover, there were plenty of memes to go around.
If you are a Warriors fan, you can't help but feel as though this team is positioned for some sort of deep playoff run. They are the sixth seed right now, although they would match up against the Memphis Grizzlies. Without Ja Morant, this would be an easy series for the Warriors, who are packed with experience. Either way, Thompson will certainly be ready for the journey. Stay tuned to HNHH for more news from the sports world.
