Warriors G Klay Thompson scores team-high 21 vs. Hornets
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(11/16/14) Warriors guard Klay Thompson scored a team-high 21 points on 7 of 13 shooting, including 4 of 6 shooting from three-point range, in hs team's 112-87 win over the Hornets Saturday.
The Warriors' starting five dominated this game, with all five logging a plus-23 or plus-24 rating in the game. Thompson led the charge, scoring at least 20 points for the third straight game while racking up five assists, four rebounds, three steals and one block in 27 minutes. The Warriors will be looking for their third straight win Sunday against the Lakers.
Warriors SG Klay Thompson scores 25 points in win vs. Nets
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(11/14/14) Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson scored a team-high 25 points on 8 of 22 shooting, includin 4 of 9 shooting from behind the arc, in his team's 107-99 win over the Nets Thursday.
Thompson overcame a poor shooting percentage to deliver his second straight game with at least 25 points while adding four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 36 minutes. He's run hot and cold this season, shooting less than 40 percent three times and 50 percent of better four times during his seven games. He'll hope for more hot and less cold Saturday against the Hornets.
Klay Thompson not a sell-high candidate
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(11/12/14) Warriors guard Klay Thompson is off to the best start of his career, which might have Fantasy owners wondering if now is the time to cash him in via trade, before he regresses. At the Fantasy Basketball Today blog, I took a look at Thompson's play, to see if regression might be in his future:
"Thompson is showcasing skills he only ever flashed before, most notably his ability to get to the rim and draw free throws. He is taking 33.0 percent of his shots within 10 feet of the rim, up from 22.3 percent last season. He has sustained his high-volume 3-point sharpshooting while doing so, and is on pace to break his personal record for free-throw attempts in a season sometime around Christmas."
Ultimately, selling high on Thompson may not be the right call at this point. The Warriors' offense is allowing him a bit more freedom to create, and a summer spent learning with Team USA, and it seems to have paid off. He'll come back to earth a bit, but Thompson looks to have taken a big step forward.

Warriors G Klay Thompson expected to return Tuesday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(11/11/14) Warriors guard Klay Thompson is expected to play Tuesday night against the Spurs, despite dealing with a sprained right wrist injury, according to the Bay Area News Group. Thompson missed Sunday's game against the Suns because of the injury. He is averaging 23.8 points and 2.2 assists this season.
|Three point specialists have their place in Rotisserie leagues, and Klay Thompson might be the best long-range expert in the league. Still, he brings a Fantasy roster very little other than those three pointers. He finished second behind teammate Steph Curry in three pointers made, but he doesn't do anything other than score because on his team there's no need for him to expand his game. His role is pinned down, and in a crowded Warriors' lineup, there simply aren't assists, rebounds, blocks or steals to be had. The only difference between Thompson and Wes Matthews in Fantasy last season was 22 more threes for Thompson. But Matthews got drafted on average almost 70 picks after Thompson. In Roto you'll have to snag Thompson no later than the fourth round because his green light to shoot glows a bit brighter than other cheaper specialists, but in points leagues, wait until the middle rounds as to not overpay for 26 Fantasy points per game.
