The Golden State Warriors’ big three of Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson combined for 78 points Wednesday night, in a 123-112 preseason victory against the Los Angeles Lakers.
Curry was the leading scorer with 32.
Thompson chipped in 19 points, and delighted his coach by also racking up eight dimes.
Per CSN Bay Area:
“It’s awesome,” coach Steve Kerr said, grinning.
“You could tell,” forward Kevin Durant said of Thompson, “that he was feeling himself on the playmaking.”
After not having a single assist in the first three games, Thompson was credited with six over the next two. Eight, which led the Warriors, is an outburst. […] “He’s evolving in understanding how teams are guarding him,” Stephen Curry said. “When he catches the ball, he obviously demands a lot of attention. And he’s been really patient reading the situation. He made some amazing passes. He had a lot of court vision, just making the simple play.”
