Warriors vs. Wizards: Stop worrying about Klay Thompson

The Warriors will face the Washington Wizards tonight with Klay Thompson looking to find his shooting touch while trying to rebound from a mild ankle injury.

If you type “Klay Thompson shooting slump” into Google, you’ll find articles about the Golden State Warriors’ all-star guard’s shooting slumps from 2015, 2016, 2017, and now 2018.

In other words, if this year’s already-tired discussion about Klay Thompson’s shooting slump gives you a deja vu feeling, it’s because we have had this conversation every single year while Thompson has been selected for the NBA All-Star game and the Warriors have made the NBA finals, winning three times.

So why on earth do people continue to worry about his slumps, even when he’s just 3-for-22 as he is this season?

Who knows ...

Thankfully, we have a coach with common sense running the team.

Warriors PR has announced that Thompson will start tonight against the Washington Wizards after suffering a mild ankle sprain during Monday night’s blowout win against the Phoenix Suns.

Based on Thompson’s track record, he could very well bust out of that slump tonight.
