Klay Thompson missed the last two games with a sore right knee. The Warriors had lost 4-of-6, they have been falling behind by double digits nearly every game, leading to a lot of “are they really that good?” speculation among fans.
Yes, they are that good.
Motivated because they faced a Denver team that would tie them with a win, the Warriors pulled away late in the first half and never looked back in dominating a 122-105 win.
Thompson was back and he was feeling it.
Thompson dropped 39, hitting 9-of-11 from three, to spark the win. He had 27 points in the first half on 9-of-13 shooting.
The Warriors flipped the switch Friday night, and it feels like they can do that any time they want.
