Klay Thompson sets NBA record with 37-point quarter: (Video) Re-live the magic from Warriors-Kings game.
Thompson made headlines last month as he broke the NBA record for points in a quarter after sinking 37 against the Sacramento Kings in 12 minutes.
The 25-year-old was perfect from the field and his third quarter performance included nine made threes as he seemingly couldn’t miss even if he tried.
However, ESPN thought they would really push the deadly shooter by running a test as part of their Sport Science series. While the technical aspect of it looked at how quickly Thompson can find his target with his vision, ultimately it tested if he could still make a three in the dark.
The video below offers a fascinating insight into how he is so accurate and how quick he is to find his range, but the Warriors will still probably want the lights on when it comes to the playoffs.
