Klay Thompson has finally returned to the court 941 days later and after two serious injuries. The Golden State Warriors recover one of their most valuable players and strengthen themselves to compete for the first spot in the Western Conference.
Good feeling against the Cleveland Cavaliers:
The destiny wanted Klay Thompson to come back against the Cleveland Cavaliers, the team that the Golden State Warriors faced off on those epic finals in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018. Warriors won the game 96-82 and Klay Thompson scored 17 points in less than 20 minutes. The shooting guard left some pretty nice plays such as the dunk that impressed the entire crowd at Chase Center.
Furthermore, klay Thompson made history on his return. He has become the second fastest player to score 1.800 triples. He has needed 616 games to reach that stat. He is only passed by Stephen Curry, who achieved that quantity in 545 games.
A very awaited return:
Klay Thompson announced his return on the social media a few days before the game: “Dub Nation, I’m back”. Four words were enough for the Golden State’s shooting guard to bring back the excitement ahead of the game against the Cavs.
All the Warriors’ players wore Klay Thompson’s jersey before the game and Draymond Green starred one of the moments of the night: despite not being optimal to play, he did not want to miss out the return of his teammate and so he started the game, made a foul and went straight to the bench, just so he could say that he actually played the game.
Beyond the details, the team from San Francisco finally get back a key piece. The ‘Splash Brothers’ are back despite Curry has decreased his level after passing the triples’ record. The Golden State Warriors are second in a very tight Western Conference with the Phoenix Suns and the Utah Jazz.
Now the Warriors have more chances to reach the top of the table and establish their opportunities to battle for the ring after the return of Klay Thompson.
