Warriors guard Klay Thompson said he and his teammates are “looking forward to” their rematch with the Bucks after Milwaukee snapped Golden State’s record winning streak.
Thompson said after Wednesday’s 128–103 rout over the Suns that the Warriors were less than pleased with the Bucks’ attitude during Saturday’s game, particularly Michael Carter-Williams’s fourth-quarter dunk and subsequent stare directed at the Golden State bench.
“We're looking forward to [the rematch], man,” Thompson said, according to ESPN.com. “Obviously a team that gave us our one in the loss column, and we felt they could have won with a little more class.”
Draymond Green also spoke about the rematch on Thursday.
