Video: Klay Thompson 37 points in one quarter
Here are video highlights of Warriors guard Klay Thompson going crazy and scoring 37 points in one quarter (the third quarter) Friday night at home in Golden State against the Sacramento Kings. He set an NBA record for the most points in a single quarter:
Thompson finished with 52 points for the game. The Warriors won big, 126-101.
According to the Associated Press, “Thompson surpassed the 33-point mark set by George Gervin in 1978 and matched by Carmelo Anthony in 2008 for the most points in a quarter. Michael Redd and Joe Johnson shared the previous mark for most 3s in a quarter with eight. Thompson, who signed a four-year, near-maximum contract extension worth about $70 million this summer, couldn’t remember ever dominating a game like that. ”Maybe elementary school,” he joked.
