The Golden State Warriors have recovered from their 29-point blowout loss to the San Antonio Spurs in game one to currently hold a 6-2 record and sit second the western conference. 

Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant have been in great from, the two-time MVP broke the record for threes in a game during the Warriors' win over the Pelicans and KD has continued his run of scoring 20 points in a game. 

However, Klay Thompson has been experiencing troubles from behind the three-point line. Despite still averaging 17.4 points a night as his midrange shooting and improved driving to the basket have kept him relevant, the shooting guard has shot just 25% from deep. 

Thompson is a notoriously slow starter, but his issues from behind the arc have been worse than ever before, so it was good for Warriors fans to see him catch fire in the opening quarter during their latest win over the Dallas Mavericks. 

The former Washington State Cougar insisted the only way out of his slump was to continue doing the things that got him to the level of a two-time All-Star and NBA champion, and that's exactly what he did. 

Klay flew out the blocks at Oracle Arena, dropping 18 points in the first quarter - including four three-pointers - as Golden State sprinted to a 34-15 lead after the first 12 minutes. 

Thompson went on to finish with 20 points and had his best night of the season from deep, scoring on four of his seven attempts. Hopefully, that's the end of his cold streak.
