Klay Thompson scores 60 points in just 29 minutes for Golden State

The former WSU basketball star had one of the great scoring nights in NBA history. Former WSU basketball star Klay Thompson erupted for 60 points in just 29 minutes on Monday night as the Golden State Warriors routed the Pacers, 142-106.
