Jerry West expresses concern about Warriors G Klay Thompson


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2015) Warriors executive board member Jerry West, who knows something about scoring, has claimed that his team needs a consistent third one beyond Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

Thompson hit just 6-of-15 from the field, missed five of six from distance and committed five turnovers. He looked lost, according to West.

"I've never seen him that off in a game," West told the San Jose Mercury News. "All year long, he never played like that.

"I think Klay is someone who takes everything personal - he wants to succeed so much, he tries so hard ... and (Tuesday) he just did not have it. ... Give Memphis credit, they are not going to let those two guys beat them ... It really comes down to someone else on the team making shots. Someone has to."


Warriors' Klay Thompson makes history with MVP Stephen Curry


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

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."
