Klay Thompson Scores 22 In First Quarter For Warriors

It's not 37... But It's still pretty good...

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

We all remember the exact place we were when Klay Thompson dropped 37 in the 3rd quarter of an NBA game against the Kings. That was just under a year ago and today, he had a bit of a tribute to that faithful day

Klay Thompson put up 22 points in the first quarter on his way to a 36 point game on Tuesday as the Warriors take down the Lakers 109-88. He went 12 for 22 including 6 for 12 from behind the arc on the game, but started 9 for 14 from the field in the first 11 minutes of the game, as Golden State moved to 33-2 on the season.

It might not be 37, but it is the 4th time in his young career that he's scored 20 in a quarter. He's also score 30 or more points in three of his last four games.

Steph Curry might be the star of the team getting all the headlines... But Klay Thomson is having a season for the ages too.
