NBA players react to Klay Thompson’s 60-point game
Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson dropped a career-high 60 points on the Pacers in just 29 minutes on Monday night, igniting a raucous crowd at Oracle Arena and those watching at home.
Among those taking notice from a distance were players around the league, who were in disbelief of Thompson’s scoring outburst.
It was just the third time an active player had hit 60 and the first time any player this season had scored that many points, passing Russell Westbrook’s mark of 51 set on Oct. 28.
Here is how the aforementioned players around the NBA—including some Warriors—reacted to the performance.
