VIDEO: Warriors' Klay Thompson hits the winner over the Pacers

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

Maybe it's that new goatee Klay Thompson is sporting? The Golden State Warriors' shooting guard was given the chance to cap off a nice game against the best defense in the league Tuesday night. With Paul George blanketing Stephen Curry at the end of the game, that left the Indiana Pacers using the smaller George Hill against Thompson.

Mark Jackson had his team go to Thompson on the mid-block. Thompson spun to the baseline in the post and put up a baseline jumper that ripped through the net with 0.6 seconds left. George missed a desperation 3-point attempt that would have won the game and the Warriors escaped with a 98-96 road victory. Thompson finished with 25 points on 10-of-20 shooting.
