Why Klay Thompson Is On A Cold Streak
Thompson is on a woeful run at the moment. He went 4-of-18 for 10 points from the field in the last game played by the Golden State Warriors. This was an 117-97 defeat at the hands of the Lakers. Thompson’s shooting percentage stands at just 19.6% in the first six games played by his team.
Surprisingly, however, he did finish second in 3 pointers after teammate Stephen Curry over the last three seasons. However, Thompson did clarify that it is “just like any other season”. He also talked about how he is “still getting the shots I always got”. He also stated how “it’s not on Kevin at all” and wished to look ahead.
Thompson has also revealed that he examines videos of his better shooting performances at times like these. He also watches highlights of rival teams before matches. He also talked about his non-performance as no “big deal”. Thompson will get a chance to return to form against the New Orleans Pelicans in the next game for the Warriors.
