Warriors' Klay Thompson continues strong shooting in win Sunday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/25/2015) Warriors guard Klay Thompson scored 31 points on 11 of 19 shooting, including 3 of 7 from 3-point range, in Golden State's 114-111 win over the Celtics Sunday.

It was Thompson's sixth straight game with at least 20 points scored. In those six games, Thompson is averaging 31.8 points, well above his 22.6 points per game for the season.


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."


Warriors' Klay Thompson tallies career-high five blocks Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/17/2015) Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson shared the team scoring lead Saturday, racking up 27 points on 9 of 15 shooting in his team's 131-106 win over the Rockets.

Thompson turned in a 32-point performance Friday night and followed it up with another big scoring game one day later. He managed to set a new career high in Saturday's win by blocking five shots while also racking up five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 31 minutes.

''Klay did a great job,'' coach Steve Kerr said after the game, per the Associated Press. ''I thought Klay did a good job of avoiding fouls and then contesting late.''

The Warriors will square off with the Nuggets Monday.


Warriors' Klay Thompson scores 32 points in losing effort Friday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson scored 32 points on 12 of 22 shooting in Golden State's 127-115 loss to the Thunder Friday. It was only the third time this season Thompson has scored over 30 points in a game. In his other two, Thompson reached 40 and 41 points.

Thompson also added four rebounds and four assists in the loss. He and the Warriors will look to bounce back Saturday against the Rockets.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/10/2015) Warriors guard Klay Thompson left Friday's game against the Magic due to a forehead laceration.

Warriors' Klay Thompson goes off for 40 points on Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Warriors G Klay Thompson lights up the Kings


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Warriors' Klay Thompson extends 20-point game streak Tuesday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Warriors guard Klay Thompson was able to eclipse at least 20 points for the eighth straight game Tuesday against the Grizzlies.

Thompson scored 22 points on 8 of 16 shooting including 4 of 5 from 3-point range, but it was not enough as the Warriors lost to the Grizzlies 105-98.

While Thompson had no problem putting the ball in the basket, he did not contribute much beyond that. Thompson finished with zero assists, two rebounds, one steal and one block.

The Warriors next play Thursday against the Thunder.


Short schedule impacts Klay Thompson, Draymond Green's short-term value


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) With every team but one playing either three or four times in Week 8 (Dec. 15-21), the schedule isn't going to dictate how you set your lineup too much. However, the Warriors' two-game schedule should lead Fantasy owners to avoid some of Golden State's biggest contributors, a shame, given how well they have played, overall.  

Guard Klay Thompson and forward Draymond Green have both emerged as must-start Fantasy options in category-based leagues. Both players have thrived in Steve Kerr's revamped offense, posting improved numbers across the board. However, with just two games on the schedule for Week 8, including tough matchups against the Grizzlies and Thunder, you are probably best served steering clear.

Moving forward, Thompson should be a no-doubt starting option in all formats, but Green's value is a bit cloudier. David Lee is going to return at some point, and though Green is almost certainly going to remain in the starting lineup, there's still some questions about how much Lee will cut into his role. Selling high on Green might not be a bad idea at this point in the season. 


Warriors SG Klay Thompson scores 29 points vs. Pelicans


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson scored 29 points on 10 of 22 shooting, including 2 of 7 shooting from three-point range, in his team's 128-122 overtime win over the Pelicans Sunday.

Thompson matched his second-best scoring performance of the season in the win, the Warriors' 16th straight. He also managed to deliver three rebounds, three assists and three blocks in a season-high 42 minutes. The 21-2 Warriors are set to face the Grizzlies Tuesday.


Klay Thompson drops 25 points in Warriors' win Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2014) Warriors guard Klay Thompson went 10 for 21 from the field, including 5 for 11 from three-point range, to score 25 points in Golden State's 105-98 win over the Mavericks Saturday. 

Thompson also had five rebounds and three assists in the victory. The Warriors will look to extend their 15-game winning streak Sunday against the Pelicans. 


Klay Thompson scores 21, Warriors win 14th straight


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2014) Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson scored a team-high 21 points on 8 of 18 shooting, including 1 of 8 shooting from three-point range, in his team's 105-93 win over the Rockets Wednesday.

The Warriors' lengthy winning streak was in jeopardy in the second half, as they entered the fourth quarter with a three-point deficit. However, they were able to turn things around and pull off their 14th straight win. Thompson has scored at least 20 points in each of his five December games, and he added four rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal in 35 minutes Wednesday. The 19-2 Warriors will attempt to keep rolling Saturday against the Mavericks.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Warriors SG Klay Thompson scores 25 points in win vs. Nets

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
(11/12/2014) 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' Klay Thompson aiming to be back in lineup Tuesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Warriors forward Klay Thompson said Sunday he is confident he will be back for Tuesday's game against the Spurs, according to the San Jose Mercury News. Thompson missed his first game of the season Sunday against the Suns due to a sprained right hand.

"I wanted to (play), but at the same time, I do realize it’s Nov. 9, and I didn’t want to go risk it out there," Thompson said after the game. "I could shoot, but it wasn’t with any power. I couldn’t really do nothing with any zip on the ball. My hand was just 60 percent.
