This was Klay’s fifth career 40-point game.
Per the SF Chronicle:
Klay Thompson had his fifth career 40-point game, leading an offense that dished out 32 assists and shot 52.3 percent from the floor, and Draymond Green had five steals to lead a defense that forced 21 turnovers and yielded only 45.1 percent shooting.
“That was a lot of fun, because when you get a stop or get a transition opportunity, you try to find (Thompson) wherever he is,” point guard Stephen Curry said. “When he gets it clicking, there’s no better thing to watch. He made some crazy shots, was attacking the rim and getting to the basket and playing efficiently.”
The Warriors (25-1), who were coming off their first loss of the season Saturday in Milwaukee, have won a franchise-record 29 consecutive regular-season games at home. They’re 11-0 at Oracle Arena this season, one win away from the franchise’s all-time home start set in 1975-76.
