Klay Thompson has been the third option for most of Kevin Durant’s inaugural season in Oakland. Last night, he was the first, second and third options.
Thompson scored an absurd 60 points in only 29 minutes against the Pacers on 21 of 33 from the floor, including 8 of 14 from distance. Golden State blew out Indiana,142-106.
Steve Kerr pulled Thompson from the game with just over a minute left in the third quarter and the Warriors leading by 35, much to the disappointment of the Oracle Arena crowd.
It’s not Thompson’s first prolific outburst in limited minutes. He dropped an NBA record 37-points in one quarter in 2015 against the Kings.
Check out every bucket from Thompson’s 60-point eruption last night.
