Klay Thompson just accomplished something for first time in three years

Klay Thompson just accomplished something for first time in three years

Last Saturday, Klay Thompson led the Warriors in scoring with 28 points against the Lakers.

On Wednesday, Klay led the Warriors in scoring with 26 points against the Spurs.

On Friday night, Klay led the Warriors in scoring with 25 points against the Suns.

You might be saying to yourself, 'So the five-time All-Star paced Golden State in three straight games -- what's the big deal?'

Well, this is the first time Klay has accomplished that during the regular season since ...

... the 2015-16 campaign when he put together a three-game stretch of:
-- 45 points against the Mavs on Jan. 27
-- 32 points at the 76ers on Jan. 30
-- 34 points at the Knicks on Jan. 31

On Feb. 3, 2016, he dropped 24 points at the Wizards, but that wasn't enough, as Steph Curry stole the show by racking up 51 points.

On Sunday against the Heat, Klay has the opportunity to make it four in a row. But a big game might not be in the works because in his career against Miami, he is averaging 17.8 points per game (sixth-fewest against any team), and shooting 36.9 percent from deep (fourth-worst against any team)

What about during the postseason? Good question.

During the 2016 playoffs -- when Curry was sidelined because of a knee sprain -- Klay scored the most points of any Warrior in four straight games:
-- Game 4 at Houston: 23 points
-- Game 5 against Houston: 27 points
-- Game 1 against Portland: 37 points
-- Game 2 against Portland: 27 points

With Kevin Durant onboard, Klay never led Golden State in scoring during the 2017 playoffs. But last season, he did so on four occasions:
-- Game 1 against the Spurs: 27 points
-- Game 1 against the Pelicans: 27 points
-- Game 3 against the Pelicans: 26 points
-- Game 6 against the Rockets: 35 points

Aren't you glad you read all of this? Have a great rest of your weekend ...

Where were you on President's Day this year?

If you're Barack Obama, you were in San Francisco seen at Ayesha Curry's restaurant, International Smoke. 

Celebrity chef Michael Mina shared a picture on Instagram of himself with Obama, plus Steph and Ayesha at the restaurant.

The 44th President of the United States and wasn't the only celebrity there on Monday night, too. Mina also posted a picture of John Legend and Chrissy Teigen as well.

Obama is in town for a three-day national convention in Oakland, hosted by his foundation, My Brother's Keeper Alliance. Curry will be joining him at a town hall as part of the conference.

Curry and the Warriors spent time with Obama in Washington, D.C., before their game against the Wizards in late January, thanks to a players-only meeting set up by Curry.

Steph Curry sneaks in odd phrases at All-Star Weekend for Jimmy Fallon

Steph Curry is a pretty good sport.

Before the Warriors star took off to NBA All-Star Weekend, Late Night host Jimmy Fallon asked Curry to sneak a few phrases into his media interviews throughout the weekend.

Fallon revealed the bit during Monday night's episode of "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon."

Curry snuck in the phrases "energizer bunny," "flippin' pancakes," and "Wham Bam Can of Ham" two times each, and nobody appeared to notice. 

Steph appeared to enjoy his experience with it all.

"Energizer bunny" and "flippin' pancakes" seemed pretty easy for the two-time MVP to mix into his interviews, but "Wham Bam Can of Ham?" What even is that?

Fallon himself had high praise for the three-time champ for agreeing to participate.
