Steph Curry and Klay Thompson have been the backbone of the Warriors for quite a while now. Together they remain a force to be reckoned with. They also played a major role in the team’s success this season. It is safe to say that the Warriors reserved the place in the semi-finals solely because of this fearsome duo. Moreover, even during Game 2 vs. the Lakers, the duo broke the barriers and scripted history.
Steph Curry, Klay Thompson Scripts NBA History Against the Lakers
Game 2 between the LA Lakers and Golden State Warriors was dominated by the mighty Warriors. They held a commanding lead for the majority of the game and secured a much-needed win. Meanwhile, Klay Thompson scripted NBA history with his 30-point game. With over 2,981 career playoff points, Thompson has moved to 28th place in the all-time high playoff scoring list. He surpassed Phoenix Suns’ Chris Paul to achieve this feat.
On the other hand, Steph Curry scripted an unusual record. Curry, who remains popular for his excellent point-scoring skills, for a change, recorded as many as 12 assists during Game 2 against the Lakers. Those assists helped the guard surpass Dwyane Wade to claim the 24th spot on the all-time playoff assists list. Curry is not too known for his playmaking skills. However, during Game 2, he changed his tactics and made plays for his pal, Klay Thompson, who capitalized on it perfectly. Overall, the powerful duo helped the Warriors gain back their command over the series, as they will now fly back to LA for Game 3.
The Lakers Got Out Performed With Steph Curry’s Average Game Play
The Golden State Warriors dominated the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 2 of their second-round playoff series, winning 127-100 on Thursday night.

Curry finished with just 20 points and 12 assists, but he still made his presence felt with his passing and defense.
Instead, it was Klay Thompson who carried the load for the Warriors on offense. Thompson poured in a game-high 30 points. He also added three rebounds and one assist. Thompson’s shooting was complemented by a strong all-around performance from JaMychal Green, who finished with 15 points, one rebound, and two assists. Now, the Warriors will look to keep their momentum going as they head back to LA for Game 3. With Thompson looking like his old self and Curry always a threat to explode for a big game, the Warriors possess a serious threat to the Lakers finals’ dreams.
