Klay Thompson has had some major highs and lows from beyond the arc this season. The sharpshooter set the record for most three-pointers made in a single game. He also spent much of the beginning of the season battling doubters as he couldn’t find his shooting touch in many games.
Here are his shooting percentages by the month so far:
- October: .313
- November: .366
- December: .337
- January: .475
- February: .508
Klay Thompson: “What is somebody going to tell me about my jump shot that I can’t fix? Unless it’s Reggie Miller or Ray Allen, I don’t know who I’m supposed to listen to. Larry Bird? Steve Kerr. I’ll listen to Steve. Steve shot 45 percent.” pic.twitter.com/GCfSmymz96— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) December 27, 2018
Basketball Reference shows Thompson is raising his deep shooting accuracy back to his nominal career average.
I think this is a good reminder that shooters shoot and the flammable Thompson is one of the greatest to ever do it. Any “slump” he’s in can be corrected by his usual hot streaks. The most important thing is that Thompson saves his hot shooting for the postseason when the Warriors will need it the most.
Long live the Splash Bros, may they dominate the arc forever!
