Klay Thompson is getting better and better as the season progresses. And while the NBA snubbed him for All-Star weekend, Mark Jackson and Larry Riley have high hopes for the rookie out of Washington State.
The Warriors play the Thunder for the third time in 22 days Friday. In the last two meetings, the W's hung tough for much of the game, but didn't execute well in the final minutes. To top OKC, Golden State will need to finish.
Mark Jackson has made it clear this year that he stands behind his guys, but he was ready to say Thursday that he's ready for more aggression from his "home-run hitters."
Monta Ellis came out of the game with 1:02 remaining in the third quarter and Mark Jackson never went back to him.
