Warriors' future draft pick breakdown

The Golden State Warriors found themselves in a precarious position in 2011-12 with their first-round draft pick. Because of a prior trade, the Warriors would have had to convey their first-round pick this past summer to the Utah Jazz had the pick been the No. 8 pick or worse.

Fortunately for the Warriors, they wound up with the No. 7 pick and got to keep it taking North Carolina small forward Harrison Barnes.

But the Warriors arent out of the woods with that pick yet. Heres a look at where the Warriors stand in terms of their upcoming draft picks:

Year 1st round
2013 Own or to Utah via Brooklyn (top-six protected)
2014 Own or to Utah via Brooklyn (top-six protected)
2015 Own
2016 Own
2017 Own
2018 Own
2019 Own

Year 2nd round
2013 To Orlando via New York and Denver
2014 Own or to Utah via Brooklyn (If Warriors do not satisfy their obligation to send Utah via Brooklyn a first-round pick by 2014)
2015 To Indiana
2016 Own or to Utah via Brooklyn (If Warriors do not satisfy their obligation to send Utah via Brooklyn a first-round pick by 2014)
2017 Own
2018 Own
2019 Own

After Klay scored 60 points, Warriors owner Joe Lacob had one question

After he dropped 60 points on the Pacers, Klay Thompson took the podium to speak to reporters.

At the end of his session, Warriors owner Joe Lacob took the microphone and the following exchange ensued:

Lacob: "Klay I just have one question: 'Do you accept this rose?'"

Klay: "Wow. Ha. Appreciate that. This man missed the 37-point quarter, so hopefully this makes up for it."

Lacob: "That's right. Great job man."

Lacob -- who sits courtside for almost every home game -- was not in attendance on Jan. 23, 2015 when Klay dropped 37 points in the third quarter against the Kings.

Klay Thompson scored 60 points on Monday night against the Pacers.

He played just 29 minutes.

Following the game, the two-time All-Star jointed Warriors Postgame Live on CSN Bay Area and was asked if he had received any messages from his family and friends.

"My dad said, 'You should have had 70. You missed four wide-open 3s,'" Klay revealed. "I'm like, 'that's more than you made your entire career ... I'm just kidding.'"

Mychal played 12 seasons from 1979 to 1991 and went 1-for-12 from deep over the course of his career.

On Jan. 23, 2015, Klay scored 37 points in the third quarter against the Kings -- setting the NBA record for most points in a quarter.

How does that night compare to what he did on Monday?

"They're both unique in their own right," Klay told the Postgame Live crew. "It's hard to pick which one was more fun. But tonight reminded me of it because the crowd -- every time you touch the ball and the crowd gets up to their feet, chanting your name, there's nothing like it ... I never take it for granted because these nights are far and few between.

"But man, it was a lot of fun. I'll tell my grandkids about this one day and I'll be that old man bragging about it. It was a fun night to say the least."

Klay scored 40 points in the first half. Was there a specific number he was hoping to get to?

"No, just play hard and play every possession the right way and that's why I think I was successful," he said. "I think I took all good shots and I was in a great rhythm. For me it was huge to get to the cup early. When I do that it opens up the whole floor for me -- using my teammates to get open and I thought my off-ball activity was great tonight.

"It was a huge breakout game for me. I'm not gonna lie -- I never really thought I would be able to do this growing up, so when I surprise myself like this it motivates me to keep on getting better."
