Prior to being injured for the last two seasons, Klay Thompson had made five straight All-Star games, five straight NBA Finals and won three NBA titles in that span. 

It's hard to find anyone in NBA history who has been part of a run such as the one Thomson had from 2015-19. 

That's one of the reasons the Golden State Warriors had not made the playoffs in each of the two seasons that Thompson was out. 

It appears as if Thompson is getting close to a return, because on Sunday the Warriors assigned him to their G-League team (Santa Cruz Warriors). 

On Tuesday, Thompson hit the game-winning shot in a scrimmage with the Santa Cruz Warriors, and the clip can be seen in a tweet that is embedded below from the Twitter account of Kevin Danna.

  • DEROZAN PASSES JORDAN ON A LIST FOR THE BULLS: DeMar DeRozan and the Chicago Bulls have been on a roll to start the new season as one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference. DeRozan is a four-time All-Star, and in his first season in Chicago and last week against the New York Knicks, he passed Michael Jordan on a list. CLICK HERE.
  • STEPH AND THE WARRIORS ARE ON FIRE: The Golden State Warriors have not made the playoffs in two seasons, but that appears likely to change this season. They are on fire to start the season led by superstar guard Steph Curry and have the best record in the entire NBA. . CLICK HERE.
