Klay Thompson had 31 points and was 5-of-8 from three Tuesday night in Golden State’s thrashing of Denver to take over the top spot in the West.
Thompson’s destruction of the Nuggets’ defense was so complete he had the very rare four dunk night.
Last season, Thompson had a bet with former Warriors center Zaza Pachulia about which of them would dunk first on the season (and which one would have the most dunks). That came up again Tuesday — and Thompson texted Pachulia during the middle of his media scrum to say he is now up 11-1 in the dunk race this season.
The Warriors were back to having fun Tuesday night, and when they play with that joy they are unstoppable.
