Klay Thompson: Bucks should’ve won with more class after breaking streak

Thursday December 17th, 2015

Warriors guard Klay Thompson said he and his teammates are “looking forward to” their rematch with the Bucks on Friday after Milwaukee snapped Golden State’s 28-game winning streak last weekend.

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.”

Thompson scored 27 of his season-high 43 points in the third quarter Wednesday in Golden State’s first game since the streak was broken. The home meeting in Milwaukee on Friday night will be the last game of the season between the two teams.
