Klay Thompson was On Fire with 37 Points in One Quarter

It’s Klay Thompson‘s world, and we’re all just living in it. The ‪#‎Warriors‬ recorded their 18th consecutive home victory tonight with a 126-101 defeat of the Sacramento Kings, and Klay Thompson made it a night we will never forget. He scored 37 points in the third quarter alone, including a perfect 9-of-9 from three-point range, both now NBA records.

37 is the record for points in a single quarter, destroying the record of 33 held by George Gervin and Carmelo Anthony. And Klay didn’t start firing until after the ten-minute mark. Didn’t even REALLY get going until mid-way through the quarter.

– NINE three-pointers is the record for threes in a quarter, breaking the mark of 8 set by Michael Redd and Joe Johnson.

– Klay went 13-for-13 in the quarter, tying the record for field goals in a quarter set by David Thompson.

– All Stephen Curry could do is laugh:

And in closing, here’s Klay checking out his stat sheet:

wtf

“Oh, sweet, I blacked out for 10 minutes and wrote the Bible.”

Thompson finished with 52 points. It’s his own fault he didn’t get more, since he put Golden State so far ahead that he made the game a blowout and got pulled to a standing ovation early in the fourth.

 

Congratulations Klay. That was awesome.
