Clay finds his groove
After scoring a combined 26 points in games 1 and 2, Klay Thompson scored 25 points Wednesday night in Game Three. The goalkeeper made five three-pointers on Wednesday, the fifth time he’s made five or more in an NBA Finals game, and the second most such game in NBA history.
But after the match, Thompson did not want to talk about his performance, but the team’s performance entered the fourth game on Friday.
“It didn’t go well enough because we lost,” Thompson said. “I would much rather have the score of Game 2 and my performance, no matter how many shots you take, how good you are. The only thing that really matters is the score of the match. Even though we let someone slip away, on Friday we have a nice opportunity to get out from the series and doing what we’re supposed to do, and that was getting one on the way.”
