The Golden State Warriors just narrowly managed to come away from their game against the Toronto Raptors last night with a win, and while Steph Curry and Kevin Durant might take most of the credit, Klay Thompson had a good game too, pulling out some nasty moves on the court at the expensive of his opponents.
After scoring 81 points in the first half and being ahead by 27 points at half time, the Warriors only just managed to squeeze out a 127-125 win at the Air Canada Center in Toronto on Saturday following a second-half comeback by the Raptors.
The Golden State trio of Curry, Durant, and Thompson all scored 20+ points on the night against Toronto, and it was the shooting guard scored the most points on the night for the Warriors. Thompson finished with the stat line of 26 points, three rebounds, two steals, and was 11-of-16 from the field after 38 minutes of action.
Curry returned from a two-game absence by scoring 24 points with six rebounds, nine assists, one steal, and was 6-of-12 from the field after 34 minutes. Durant scored 25 points with six rebounds, five assists, one block, and was 10-of-18 from the field after 36 minutes.
Despite having two former MVPs in their lineup, it was Thompson that had one of the best moves on the court on the night, and as you can see in the video below, the entire Warriors bench enjoyed it.
During the play, Thompson drove his way to the basket, hitting the jumper for two, but he also made Raptors' Serge Ibaka fall over in the process after the power forward misplaced his footing and lost his balance.
On the video, you can see most of the Warriors bench, including Curry and Durant, fall to the ground in laughter while copying Ibaka's fall to the court.
However, Toronto almost had the last laugh on the night, as with the help of DeMar DeRozan who scored 42 points, they decreased the lead which Golden State had at half time from 27, to just two points by the end of the game.
The Warriors will play next on Monday in Cleveland against the Cavaliers in a rematch of the past three NBA Finals.
