VIDEO: Klay Thompson scores 29 in the first half of Game 2

By Royce Young | NBA writer

Mark Jackson called Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry the "best shooting backcourt in NBA history" recently. A lot of people scoffed at that.

But Curry and Thompson are making everyone believers now. We all know about Curry's scoring exploits, but Thompson was the one putting on a shooting show in the first half of Game 2. Thompson went 11-18 from the floor for 29 points, and hit 7-8 from 3.

Check out Thompson's shot chart too:

Apparently, he needs to stay 25 feet from the basket. Because point blank range is no good for him.

And here's something to watch: The playoff record for 3s in a game is nine. As he is whenever he steps on the court, Thompson is in range.
