Thompson scored 23 points (9-15 FG, 5-8 3Pt) to go along with three rebounds, three assists and three steals during Tuesday's 112-87 win over the Mavericks. Thompson didn't see his usual complement of minutes because of a sizable lead on the scoreboard, but he still exceeded his season average in scoring thanks to another lethal night shooting from beyond the arc. He is on a stellar run lately, averaging 27 points (55 percent from the field, 53 percent from three) and five treys per game over his last five.
Thompson scored 34 points (12-21 FG, 7-15 3Pt, 3-3 FT) to go along with six rebounds, two assists and two steals across 32 minutes during Monday's 111-95 win over the Thunder. Thompson's 14 points in the second quarter were instrumental in helping build a 20-point lead at halftime, and his 14 in the third helped put the game away. He possesses the ability to get as hot as anyone in the NBA when he is in a rhythm, and that has certainly been the case over his last six starts, with averages of 27.8 points (on 53.2 percent shooting) and 4.2 treys per game over that stretch.
Thompson posted 21 points (9-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one block over 34 minutes in Saturday's 117-92 win over the Bucks. It's been like old times for the vaunted Splash Bros. over the last three games, as both Thompson and Stephen Curry have made major contributions to the offense and have each eclipsed the 20-point mark in each contest. Thompson's shot attempts were down a tick after he'd put up 22 and 20 tries, respectively, over the last two games. However, he kept the same hot hand he'd flashed against the Magic on Thursday and has now shot 31-for-58 over his last three games, including 13-for-24 from long distance over that span.
Thompson scored a team-high 29 points (12-20 FG, 5-9 3Pt) with four rebounds, five assists and one blocked shot over 29 minutes in Thursday's 122-92 win over the Magic. Thompson set a tone early, making 8-of-9 from the field, including 5-of-5 from long distance, to score 21 first-quarter points. By then, the Warriors were in cruise control. He's been deadly the last four games, shooting 45-for-87 (51.7%) from the field and averaging 28 points. While we thought Stephen Curry would take on a bigger scoring load without Kevin Durant (knee), it's been Thompson stepping up his production. His hot streak comes at a good time as Curry rolled his ankle in Thursday's win, making his availability Saturday night's game against Milwaukee uncertain. If Curry is limited or worse Saturday, that would mean more shots for Thompson.
Thompson will sit out of Saturday's game against the Spurs in order to rest. After their fourth loss in six games coach Steve Kerr announced that Thompson will sit out Saturday along with Steph Curry, Andre Iguodala, and Draymond Green. Clearly, Kerr believes his team is a little warn down at the moment. As a result, Patrick McCaw figures to handle a majority of the shooting guard duties against the Spurs, while several other bench players become intriguing DFS options. Thompson will presumably return to the court Tuesday against the 76ers.
