PBT Extra: Klay Thompson’s done well, but Warriors should throw other defenders at James Harden, too

6 Comments

Klay Thompson has done an admirable job defending James Harden in the Western Conference Finals — the Rockets’ cornerstone has had a near triple-double in both games in the series, but he’s doing it hitting difficult, contested shots.

On the other end of the court, Thompson has seen his offense drop off due to his huge defensive assignment.

In this latest PBT Extra with Jenna Corrado, I suggest the Warriors throw some other defenders at Harden — Harrison Barnes comes to mind… just not Leandro Barbosa again — to change up the looks.

Plus Thompson will get some rest, maybe helping spark more offense from him.
