The Golden State Warriors have won 14 of their last 15 games. They’re 18-3 on the season and it appears they skipped that awkward “getting to know you” phase. While they didn’t match the 24-0 start of 2015-2016, they are scoring more than last season, up to 120.2 points per game compared to 114.9. (For perspective, the ’81-’82 Denver Nuggets hold the record for scoring average with 126.48 points per game.)
Klay Thompson had an absolutely insane game on Monday night, scoring 60 points in 29 minutes, and he barely even touched the ball. The ability of the quick strike is what makes Klay and the rest of the Warriors so dangerous. Just look at the video above. Off a jump ball on their own defensive end it takes less than 4-seconds for Kevin Durant to get a dunk.
Zaza Pachulia, whose job it is to simply be on the court a few minutes a night to give the illusion that the Warriors have the traditional makeup of a basketball team, beats Paul George to win the tip. Draymond Green catches the ball and immediately throws a deep football pass to Stephen Curry. Steph catches the ball in the air and throws it back over his head to a trailing Kevin Durant. KD dunks. All Klay Thompson did was make a bunch of baskets. These guys made a highlight.
