“I Can Be Better,” Klay Thompson Vows Of Comeback Amid Golden State Warriors’ Brutal Slump

Klay Thompson has been an essential member of the Golden State Warriors and their modern-day dynasty. He is a four-time champion, along with Draymond Green and Stephen Curry. This tripod needs to perform equally well if the Dubs need to win their 5th title in ten years. However, Draymond Green has been disappointing in the current season, with two suspensions already in the first half of the season.

On the other hand, the seven-time champions look heavily dependent on Stephen Curry. Until Green returns from his second suspension, the Dub Nation has to do away with the Curry-Thompson duo. Currently, the Dubs are on a two-game winning streak. To increase the chances of making the postseason, the Dubs must maintain a winning streak. Recently, Thompson got back some much-needed momentum.

Recently, Thompson said he could do better. On December 17, 2023, the Warriors beat the Portland Trail Blazers 118-114. Klay Thompson displayed a much-improved performance in that win. Moreover, in the last few games, the Warriors guard has been shooting better than before. In the game against the Trail Blazers, Thompson scored 28 points. He shot 68.8% from the field as well as 50% from beyond the arc. Anyhow, in the post-game press conference, Klay Thompson mentioned he is still not at his best. But the guard is sure about keep getting better and is looking forward to the big test coming up against the Boston Celtics tonight.

Adding to that, Klay Thompson mentioned that consistency is something that he must build on. Moreover, he will try to replicate his Sunday performance against a championship-caliber team like the Celtics. On top of that, Klay feels positive about the momentum he has got in the last three games and a home-court advantage against the Celtics tonight. Moreover, Thompson mentioned that it is always fun when a strong team like the Celtics visits the Chase Center. Anyhow, Klay Thompson feels the team has got what it takes to protect their home court.

Warriors Look To Bounce Back Stronger

Currently, the Golden State Warriors are 12-14. Even after winning back-to-back games, the Dubs are the 11th seed in the Western Conference. Moreover, the fans worried because Klay Thompson was not at his best either at the beginning of the season. On top of that, there were rumors around the Dubs wondering if they should trade Thompson before the trade deadline. The GSW fans chanted, “Get Some Help For Curry” on X and other social media platforms. However, against the Los Angeles Clippers, Steph Curry had an off day.

On the other hand, Klay Thompson decided to bounce back in that very game. After the game, the Dub Nation started to chant, “Get this man (Klay) some help.” However, the absence of Draymond Green is not doing the team any good. Moreover, the Golden State Warriors have been pretty inconsistent so far this regular season. But with Thompson getting back to form, Steph Curry might get enough help to lead the team to bounce back.
