Steph finished the game at 36 points while shooting 7-of-12 from beyond the three-point arc. While Curry had an insane game, it was the other half of the splash brothers who won fans’ hearts. Klay Thompson, who is ruled out for the season due to an unfortunate injury, was present at the stadium tonight.

Although Klay can’t play basketball right now, he still displayed his skills during a timeout. Klay scored a bucket while wearing a boot to protect his leg, and it left the fans in awe.

As of now, the Warriors are still struggling to find their form. So far, the Dubs are 9-8 this season, and they are definitely missing Klay’s presence on the court. Without Klay, they are testing out many rosters and looking to find the perfect combination.

Can the Golden State Warriors make a deep playoff run without Klay Thompson?

After a poor last season, fans expected the Dubs to make a roaring comeback. However, due to another unfortunate injury to Klay Thompson, they might have to wait for another season to win a championship.
