Live look at Klay Thompson...
Simple mistake. 15 assists, 40 assists. Other than 25, what's the real difference there? Yeah, I know the Warriors only scored 33 baskets in last night's game. I know that even during their 73-9 season they only averaged just over 26 assists. I know a player thinking that his team was rewriting the record books in a game in which his two best teammates couldn't buy a timely basket seems absolutely preposterous, but if you were Klay Thompson you would be frantically looking for positives too. He's basically just grasping at imaginary straws and I don't blame him. I don't even think Klay Thompson knew where he was during that postgame presser. His team hasn't lost back-to-back games in such awful fashion for as long as I - or anyone else - can remember. He's basically living in the twilight zone. Up is down, left is right, and the Oklahoma City Thunder have morphed into the Golden State Warriors. He's not used to talking to the media after a brutal loss. Especially not when he put up 19 points in a quarter. This is unfamiliar territory, and it's created a level of confusion that has turned Klay Thompson into Lloyd Christmas.
