Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson sits down with USA TODAY’s Sam Amick to go behind the scenes with him and the team. They begin with how he’s not as quiet as some might think and how his father Mychal – a member of the 1980’s Showtime Lakers – is a man who loves to talk (as well he should be, hosting a radio show). They talk about Thompson’s accomplishments so far in his young career and how he’s working to sustain it. Thompson talks about how tough the loss was to Cleveland on Christmas and they’re looking forward to the next game between the two. He talks a little...

Cavaliers notebook: Warriors, not Cavs, still working on continuity

OAKLAND, CALIF.: It wasn’t too long ago when the Cavaliers were preaching patience, when LeBron James kept reiterating that they didn’t have much time together as a unit and that they were still developing continuity. One Finals victory and one huge Warriors addition later, now those roles have changed. Yes, Kyle Korver is a new addition still getting worked into the system, but he is a complementary piece to the Cavs’ machine. The Warriors are still figuring out how Kevin Durant fits alongside Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.Of course, they’re hardly struggling through...

Klay Thompson’s number retired at Santa Margarita Catholic High

Thirteen of Thompson’s teammates from his 2008 CIF Division III state championship team, as well as a number of his former coaches and teachers, were on hand to see his framed No. 1 Eagles jersey hung on a wall overlooking the court. “Enjoy this time while it lasts, because I’m telling you, it goes by fast,” Thompson, wearing his state championship ring, told a student body of more than 1,600. Thompson, a two-time All-Star with the Warriors, averaged 22.1 points per game during his three years on Santa Margarita Catholic’s varsity and was the state’s Division III Player of the...

3-point barrage powers Warriors to rout of Pistons

In its 127-107 rout Thursday of Detroit, Golden State reminded a sellout Oracle Arena crowd of 19,596 just how potent it can be beyond the arc. The Warriors finished 15-of-29 (51.7 percent) from three-point range, with five players — Durant (25 points, nine assists), Curry (24 points, five steals), Klay Thompson (23 points), Clark (11 points) and Andre Iguodala (eight points) — hitting multiple treys. In the third quarter, after a first half that featured 21 lead changes, Golden State used an 8-of-12 showing from deep to outscore the Pistons 41-19 and eradicate all suspense. The...

Warriors mix it up in win over Heat

Without Thompson, Golden State uses defense and a variety of rotations to hold off a gritty Miami squad. OAKLAND, Calif. — The Warriors’ offense was not nearly as potent without the presence of Klay Thompson, whose sharpshooting prowess keeps defenses honest. But Golden State proved it can still win basketball games with depth and defense. And a dash of timely offensive execution in crunch time, of course. The usual suspects led the way for the Dubs. Stephen Curry had a well-rounded floor game, finishing with 24 points, 8 rebounds and 9 assists. Kevin Durant added 28 points, 8...

Recap: The Warriors put away the Heat

Recap: The Warriors put away the Heat

The Warriors couldn’t defend the paint and hit their threes, but like many games this season, they found a way to win in the second half. At times this season, the Warriors are a little boring. They’re winning, but they’re not relying on the theatrics or fireworks in seasons past. Against many of their lesser opponents, the Dubs seem to coast before finally turning up the heat in seemingly perfunctory wins. Against the Miami Heat today, the Warriors suffered from lethargy from the start. Without Klay Thompson, who had the game off due to rest, the Warriors struggled to hit threes...

Warriors miss Klay Thompson in win over Miami

Klay Thompson has built an NBA career on his catch-and-shoot brilliance. Miami attacked the rim at will for stretches and finished 32-of-59 (54.2 percent) on two-point attempts. Zaza Pachulia dove for the loose ball and hit Curry, who found Andre Iguodala in stride for a tomahawk dunk that sent a capacity Oracle Arena crowd to its feet. Kevin Durant (28 points, eight rebounds), Curry (24 points, eight rebounds, nine assists) and Draymond Green (13 points, nine rebounds) helped the Warriors withstand 28-point, 20-rebound clinic by Whiteside. An NBA-best record long overshadowed the...

Warriors’ Steve Kerr ‘won’t hesitate’ to rest more players

Three years ago, entering his first season as the Warriors’ head coach, Steve Kerr tried to map out which days to rest his core players. Developments like Tuesday’s, when Kerr rested Klay Thompson after watching Thompson play through illness the previous two games, are just part of the randomness that comes with the NBA grind. In the six weeks until the All-Star break, a stretch commonly deemed the “dog days” of the 82-game regular season, Kerr said he “won’t hesitate” to rest players who need it. Kerr leaves all questions about personnel moves to general manager Bob...

Warriors’ Patrick McCaw to start vs. Heat

Warriors rookie Patrick McCaw will make his first career start Tuesday night, filling in for Klay Thompson (rest) against the Heat. Starting McCaw, 21, allows head coach Steve Kerr to keep his second unit intact. A second-round pick from UNLV, McCaw’s playing time has fallen off significantly in recent weeks as Ian Clark has beaten him out for the backup shooting guard spot. McCaw was sent down to the NBA Development League for a one-game stint two weeks ago to get more experience. A master at spacing the floor, he leads the league with 10.4 points per game off catch-and-shoot...
