The Warriors’ superstar Klay Thompson has spent the previous ten years establishing himself as one of the all-time great shooters. He has made five All-Star appearances, two All-NBA picks, and three championships to his tally, as well as some of the most memorable performances in NBA history. The veteran’s name is all over the record books. From hitting 14 3-pointers in a single game to scoring 37 points in a single quarter, Klay has proved his worth a handful of times.
The 32-year-old said, “I’ve never been so excited to go to Boston, I’ll tell you that,”
When asked if it’s the best defensive run he’s had in the playoffs, he said, “It could be, but doesn’t mean anything if I go out there and lay an egg in a couple days, or a few days.”

Does Klay Thompson actually play better in Game 6 compared to his other games? His record would suggest so.
Thompson has appeared in a total of 12 Game 6s in his career. In those games, what were his averages? 20.7 points on 44.6 percent field goal shooting and 49.5 percent 3-point shooting. His scoring average in Game 5s is marginally greater, but his 3-point % in Game 6s is unrivaled.
