Warriors' Klay Thompson makes history with MVP Stephen Curry


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2015) Warriors guard Stephen Curry was named this year's MVP of the NBA. However, he had some serious help in the backcourt. 

Making history was guard Klay Thompson, who averaged 21.7 points per game this season. This marks the highest scoring average for any player sharing the backcourt with an NBA MVP, according to the Contra Costa Times

"I think we all do just because we all work hard with Steph every day," Thompson said. "He pushes us to be a great team so I think we've all got a hand in it."

Warriors coach Steve Kerr credited Thompson's presence on the court in allowing Curry to further excel as a basketball player. 

"Klay being an All-Star, being his backcourt mate, and the incredible shooting range and prowess is one of the reasons Steph has as much room to roam and attack as he does because defenses have to worry about Klay, too," Kerr said. "Klay should absolutely understand he's a big part of this."

Durant's contract with the Thunder expires in 2016 and he'll be a free agent.

"The cap is gonna go up," Thompson said. "David Lee is gonna be off the books. So they are gonna have some salary cap room."

Warriors' Klay Thompson enters record books with 37-point quarter


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2015) Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson set a new NBA record Friday by scoring 37 points in a single quarter against the Kings.

Thompson went 13 of 13 from the field in the third quarter, including 9 of 9 from three-point range, to give him 50 points in the first three quarters of the game alone. The nine three-pointers also represent a new NBA high for a single quarter. Prior to Thompson's huge quarter, Wilt Chamberlain held the franchise record for points in a quarter, scoring 31 in a game in 1962.

Thompson scored his team's last 18 points in the massive quarter, in which the team managed to put up 41 points as a unit. Though he was given a breather at the start of the fourth quarter, the shooting guard eventually came back into the game.

After a two-point fourth quarter, Thompson finished the game with 52 points, matching Minnesota's Mo Wiliams for the highest scoring output in a single game this season. The Warriors guard shot 16 of 25 from the field, including 11 of 15 from three-point range, falling just one shy of matching the NBA record for three-pointers in a game. He also chipped in five assists, four steals, two rebounds and two blocks in the team's 126-101 win over the Kings. The Warriors next square off with the Celtics Sunday.


Warriors planning rest days for Andre Iguodala, Andrew Bogut


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/18/2015) Warriors coach Steve Kerr told reporters he is planning on resting small forward Andre Iguodala and could rest center Andrew Bogut for some time, according to mercurynews.com

"Andre's not real happy," Kerr said smiling after Iguodala reluctantly agreed to miss his first game of the season. "He wants to play every second of every game, so I have to protect him from himself a little bit."

Iguodala is coming off of a season where knee tendinitis kept him limited for some time. Bogut is still recovering from knee inflammation, which kept him out of action for a month.

"Thankfully we're in a position where we can do that," Bogut said of getting rest. "If we're 20-15 at this point, we don't do that. There are some luxuries and rewards in performing well early."

Kerr also hinted that point guard Stephen Curry and shooting guard Klay Thompson may get some time off, as the two are playing less minutes this season than in previous years.

"Whether it's Pop or anybody else, to me, it's common sense," Kerr said. "And when you get into a long stretch, and you're fortunate enough to be able to mix and manage, then you just do it. It makes sense in the long run."
