Klay Thompson’s barrage on the Bulls gets the Warriors Wonder

Thompson absolutely owns Chicago this season.

NBA: Chicago Bulls at Golden State Warriors Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bulls used to have an Olympian shooting guard who could go off for 30 on any given night. That was Michael Jordan, over two decades ago. It must be bittersweet for their longtime fans to watch Jordan’s former teammate Steve Kerr grooming another red-hot 2-guard, a man named Klay Thompson, now known as “Hunter of Bulls.”

Thompson lit the Bulls up for 30 points in three quarters last night in Oracle, flying around the court and drilling catch-and-shoot jumpers with gold-blooded accuracy. Thompson finished the bloodbath 10-of-18 from the field, 7-of-11 from beyond the arc.

Honorable Mention: Kevin Durant led all players with a whopping +42 plus/minus, fueled by 22 points and 5 assists on 7-of-11 shooting from the field. He also made the second half entertaining by jaw-jacking with Bobby Portis and then lighting up random Bulls in early garbage time.

Honorable Mention: Stephen Curry. 28 points and 8 assists is a pretty stellar night, but he had some ATROCIOUS passes that either resulted in turnovers or mucked up possessions. The Dubs may have scored 160 if Curry wasn’t so loose with his passing, but I guess 146 worked out alright. He finished with four head scratching turnovers for the evening, but definitely had enough highlights to make up for it.

Like passing Jason Terry to become third all-time in three-pointers splashed.
