One would assume that if an NBA player scored 43 points in a game, they would have dribbled the ball quite a bit.
Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson defies that logic.
In his 43-point performance Tuesday night against the Knicks, Thompson dribbled the ball four times.
This is becoming a thing with Thompson. Whenever he has a monster night, he tends to not dribble the ball much.
In his insane 60-point performance against the Pacers on Dec. 5, 2016, Thompson dribbled the ball only 11 times.
Klay dribbled 11 times on his 21 field goals. ELEVEN. Had ball for 1.5 seconds per touch in the frontcourt. https://t.co/zznglgOEDm— Tom Haberstroh (@tomhaberstroh) December 6, 2016
Earlier this season, Thompson made an NBA record 14 3-pointers against the Bulls and finished with 52 points. He dribbled the ball five times in that game.
The Warriors Postgame show just counted the total Klay Thompson dribbles on his 14 3-pointers...— Ahmed Fareed (@FareedNBCS) October 30, 2018
Klay Thompson, the master of moving without the ball.
