Key thing to note. First field goal at 9:44. Meaning he scored 37 points in TEN fu**ing minutes.

Klay Thompson has 52 points, matching the single-season high point total in the NBA this season (Mo Williams, 1/13/15).

See it sounds bad.

I saw it and have never seen anyone dominate like that in 1 quarter.

Yall are going overboard. It was impressive, the last few minutes were damn impressive in fact... but it wasn't even top ten in terms of strongest individual performance in a quarter. He's not even creating most of his shots. And the Kings aren't even attempting to defend him (or anyone else). Half of his points came simply because both teams are trying to outrun each other and are turning the ball over left and right leading to fast-break baskets. What Carmelo did was WAY more impressive. They threw the kitchen sink at him and it didn't matter. Same as a few of Kobe's performances. For half of this quarter the person playing best on the court was Cousins (HATE his body language, coaching him must be a nightmare).

Klay breaks the all time record for points in a quarter by FOUR and its not even a top 10 performance? lol

Dray said it best after the game, you cant even go 13-13 and 9-9 from deep for 37 points in a video game

Maybe it's just me, but I'm more impressed by a player beating different types of defenses with different types of skills. A head fake from the post followed by a reverse pivot and an up and under with contact is worth less points than a wide open three pointer on a fast break, but to me it's way more impressive.

I've seen LeBron, Melo, Kobe, Jordan, Shaq, Hakeem, etc look straight unstoppable at times. This wasn't that. This was a great shooter who got red hot and a defense with zero pride. Seriously, at times I feel like I'm the only person on the planet that actually cares about defense. Hot as Klay was, how come he wasn't being double teamed every time he came off screens? At least hedge! Only ONCE did Klay beat someone off the dribble to the rim that whole quarter. And rotation was late as hell when he did so. You would think it'd be all eyes on the guy with 40 points. Ugh, I'm getting old or something. smh

I dont know if it was- I mean it wasnt "nothing"- it takes a superstar to do what klay did. But if you consider the importance of this game for the warriors (not that important- kerr sat iggy and basically treated it like a pre season game)

Also take into account the time of year. Nothing is really on the line for either team

And take into account the quality of play around klay (Ive seen more effort and urgency in my drive way playing horse with my 3 yr old)

It was a lot of fun to watch and its one of the best performances this year.. but taking over a playoff game would far and away be better

Didn't have time to contest the shot? You have no idea how silly a notion that is. When a dude is shooting like that someone is suppose to be in his hip pocket as soon as he crosses half court. When he comes off of screens the big man should leave his man contest and then recover. Every time he puts the ball on the ground a double should be coming. What Klay did was impressive, but it wasn't what people are making it out to be.

i was eating a cheeseburger, couldn't believe it. never seen a quarter like that, not even during 81. I really though Kerr was going to let him push for 70. i had klay tonight in draft kings.

amazing. the entire league is in trouble if the warriors are healthy. hawks/warriors would be a pretty amazing finals based off how these two teams are playing right now.

Umm did you watch the video ? On some of the shots he had to fade backwards or sideways to gain separation and make room to shoot. Maybe 3 of them he was wide open.

You CANNOT be serious. Do you understand what kind of a zone you have to be in to score 37 points in 12 minutes and not miss a shot??? (It was actually more like 9 1/2 minutes because his first points didn't come until 2 1/2 minutes into the quarter). The Kings may not have been playing in your face defense, but you're making it seem like he was just jogging through their team and slowly spotting up. He was in an insane rhythm, pulling up quickly, and nothing could stop it. At one point toward the end of the quarter he shot a 3 with his legs barely planted, spread shoulder length apart, with two men right on him. Just because you didn't like the manner in which he did it, does not make it any less impressive or less spectacular. This WAS the greatest scoring quarter by an individual in NBA history. He was in once in a lifetime place with his touch and we're lucky to have seen it.

You mean like this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDkZ6bXtFDY :p. Let me put it this way: If you were in an empty gym, it would be nearly impossible to hit 9 straight 3 pointers and make 13/13 shots in a row. Now, transfer that to an NBA game with some of the most talented players on earth on the court with you. Unbelievable. This is coming from one of the most insane Jordan fans of all time. I saw him do things I've never seen anyone do again, and this performance is to that level of "taking over." So, no matter how average the defense was against him tonight, this was a massive feat. Klay shooting the ball tonight was a rare thing of beauty.

Wait, what? Have you ever played basketball?

In an open gym hitting 9 threes in a row is very, very easy. I'm sure almost any guard in the NBA can do it.

Back in highschool when I practiced everyday I'd regularly hit 15+ in a row, and that's not even impressive. I've ended games of 21 before without anyone else touching the ball, that's 18 straight threes.

Completely different story in a game.

Congratulations. Of course I've played, but nowhere near to the level of these players. Also, if you really could shoot that consistently I'm surprised you didn't play in college. So many everyday people who play basketball can't bury 9 threes in a row without a miss alone on a basketball court (maybe 7 out of 9 if you're really in rhythm). I've hit 6 in a row during a 3 on 3 league game while I was in high school but that's it. If you're a regular individual and you're hitting 9 out of 9 "very easily" when shooting around, you should be playing in the NBA as a specialist lol. If you also add 4 more random shots from the elbow and driving to the rack with some obstacles without missing, I would say that would be very tough to do for the average person. You my friend, are not the typical person who watches the NBA if what you claim is true. Lastly, and I quote you: "Completely different story in a game."

Let's be honest. The Kings defense wasn't great. And Klay did get some open looks. But he also made some VERY tough shots.

And it doesn't matter who you are playing
If it was that easy people would do this every night.

This is by far the best individual scoring performance I've seen in a single quarter. And it is NOT close. Not even remotely. I mean he literally did not miss. And he did all of this in about 10 minutes, it wasn't even a full quarter.

Goose17
01-24-2015, 10:41 AM
The scoreboard was 60-60 with just under 10 minutes left in the third.

At the end of the third the Kings were down by 31. Crazy.

Yeah, it was definitely something special. I just dont know if it was the best quarter ever (given the circumstances around the game)

also making 13 of 13 shots in an empty gym is very attainable. Go to a game and watch steph and klay in warm ups.... they are screwing around and drill like 33 of 35 shots from all over

:cheers: Cheers brother! Couldn't agree more. These Warriors are something else this year. I can't believe they've gone from the Cohan owned team who made the playoffs once in 16 years, to this beastly team under Lacob who have gone to the playoffs twice in 3 years, and are favorites to come out of the West during his 4th year of ownership. Things are looking extremely bright in the Bay! Go Dubs!

I see what you're saying. I guess a little confusion may lay in the way I said my example. When I said "you" I was referencing the everyday person in general, definitely not most NBA players. They can go on some pretty insane shooting streaks while warming up or even just messing around, so they're very capable in a non-game situation. I truly feel that a majority of the population can't just show up at some lone hoop and bury that many shots in a row, 9 of which being 3's. That's my opinion though. What Klay did in-game was pretty damn astonishing. I remember watching him on the replay having only 18 points with 5 1/2 minutes left or something, and I was wondering how the other 19 points were going to come lol

One of the greatest performances ever in a single quarter.

The Kings played minimal Defense, I mean come on give klay at least one double team to try to put out the fire..

Putting myself in the Kings shoes, I think it's more outta respect to steph then pure stupidity.. If you double klay you leave MVP candidate steph , but still klay didn't miss all quarter..

The Warriors backcourt is the real deal, easily the best in the NBA.. How do you stop these guys?

I had only above average athleticism in high school that was made below average when I ****ed up my knee... then ****ed it up again. I could barely jump after that. In game unless I was wide open I wouldn't realistically be able to get a shot off.

Albeit lately my athleticism has somewhat come back, I can nick the bottom of the rim again at 5'11 and I've gotten a lot of my speed back.

But I mean at the NBA level I can't fathom a guard not being able to hit at least 9 3s in a row. Even rondo who is a known horrid shot hit what, 6 or so in a row when he was playing horse with Durant?

I remember when Brandon Roy on his gimpy knee went off against the Mavs in the playoffs and that wasn't even close to how amazing this was. ****, had they let him play the 4th Qiarter he could have made a run at Kobe's 82 the way he was playing... And after what, 13 points first half?

Unbelievable

yup, that's why we almost never see it happen during the 3 point contest where the better 3 shooters in the league are competing right?

Dude, I can upload a video of me hitting 10 plus threes in a row easily this week if you're struggling to believe it.

Any guard in the NBA could hit 10 or so threes in a row regularly when not being guarded.

I mean **** - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yuH5mqHKIUk

Might not be regulation range, but IN THE RAIN he hits 46 ****ing shots in a row, and 70/76.

Seriously...

And just to show from regulation http://www.slamonline.com/media/slam-tv/nik-stauskas-15-straight-threes-46-seconds-video/

15/15 in 42 seconds..

Just as well Klay wasn't in an open gym with no defenders. Your comparison is pointless, it makes no sense.

I'm sure he can drop more than 37 in 12 minutes of just shooting with nobody on him in an open gym. I fail to see what point you're trying to make with this.

No, again, read before commenting, really saves you trouble.

Let me show you what I was arguing -


If you were in an empty gym, it would be nearly impossible to hit 9 straight 3 pointers and make 13/13 shots in a row

I wasn't taking anything away from Thompson, I was arguing this quote.

I think the beautiful part of his performance was the look on Curry's face. Curry was ecstatic for Klay. Genuinely, you could see it on his face. That's just great teammates. This duo will rock the NBA for many years. Legendary performance by Klay. Every time Harden does something, Klay puts him down. Harden makes a game winner? Okay. I'll just score 37 in the third quarter and I can do it without missing a shot.

9 for 9 from 3 is astounding even if he was wide open on every one.. and he wasnt. 3 or 4 were open shots. some of them were really difficult.. this was the most impressive individual effort ive ever seen. This and T-Macs 13 in 35 are the two craziest things ive seen. cant even be done in 2k.. big ups to Klay.

Yeah, it was definitely something special. I just dont know if it was the best quarter ever (given the circumstances around the game)

also making 13 of 13 shots in an empty gym is very attainable. Go to a game and watch steph and klay in warm ups.... they are screwing around and drill like 33 of 35 shots from all over

This is all that I've been saying. I just think people are so ADDish that every time they see something awesome, instead of simply calling it awesome, they say "it was the best quarter ever". And that's what I objected to. Maybe it's in some people's top ten instead of my top 15. Maybe it's in some people's top 5 instead of top 10. But if you're saying that this was more impressive than Lebron going off on the Pistons, or when he went back and forth with Pierce I'm calling BS. It's like when people argue that Wilt's 100 game was the best performance ever. That's nonsense coming from people who only look at the number, and not how the number was achieved.

With all that said... yes, Klay made some incredible shots. A few of them in a row. Maybe I watch more basketball then some of the other people here, but I've seen that before. You take away shots where the defense was just abysmal and that's a 25 point quarter at best.

Your top 15? Name the other 14 single quarter scoring performances that surpass it. In order. I'm interested to hear this B.S

Sure you could argue Lebron against the Pistons or whatever. But Klay put up 37 points in less than 10 minutes. 13 of those in two minutes. And he didn't miss a single shot.

He's in the history books.

Quit being a hater, if that isn't one of the best shooting quarters you've seen from an individual then you must be watching some alternate dimension version of the NBA.

It is hands down the best I've seen personally. And I take it over the Lebron performance. Even when Klay was moving off the ball the way he was getting open was very clever. People don't get enough credit for being elite off the ball players (say hello to Korver).

Nobody else in the entire league has EVER done what Klay did. You're acting as if anyone could do it and it was easy. If that's the case howcome nobody ever has? Not Kobe. Not Lebron. Not Jordan. Not Wilt. Not anyone.

And did Sacramento play weak defense? Yep. For a lot of it, not all, but most. Does that take away from it? No. Melo, KD, Lebron, Kobe and all the superstars throughout the entire history of the league have played against WORSE defense than that and they didn't do what Klay did.

Sit down.

Agreed. You can't nick pick at instances when he was open. Its the same for every player who has ever had a good quarter. Your gonna get some open looks, your gonna have some guarded looks. What Klay did...couldnt be done. It was a beast mode, it surpassed the best quarters of Jordan, Kobe, etc. The best quarter I have ever seen, was Bron's 4th quarter and overtime against Detroit in the playoffs. Given that it was a playoff game against a good defensive team, do people think it was as good as Klay's 3rd quarter? Or does Klay's take the cake?

So the Ice Man apparently commented on this:


The texts started lighting up George Gervin's phone last Friday night, a buzzing stream of exclamations and wonderment. Some kid had just broken an unbreakable scoring record. A nearly four-decade-old record. Gervin's record.

Thirty-seven points in one quarter! That's what Klay Thompson, the Golden State Warriors' young shooting ace, had just done, the texts said. Thirty-seven points. Four more than Gervin scored in a quarter back in 1978.

The 62-year-old Gervin had two immediate reactions when he learned of Thompson's incredible feat.

First: "I said, 'Wowwwww, that's pretty impressive.'"

Then: "But I'd like to see him try to get 33 or 37 in a quarter when there wasn't no three-point line."

Difference is that Klay wouldn't have seen a lot of these looks if not for Curry being so respected. Don't get me wrong I absolutely love Klay and have for a while, never expected him to be this good.

But if Curry goes down for a 10 game stretch, we'd see what he's capable of. Curry can create his own shot and shoot over people like no one else in the league. The offense would be pretty stagnant without him. The disparity between their performances in these past few games certainly hurts on paper, but truthfully it is amazing how much better the things that curry does can make his teammates, Klay included.
