It was a good night for Klay Thompson and the Golden State Warriors, who were a class above the Dallas Mavericks.
They call it “The Golden Hour.” Each day after their film session, an hour goes up on the scoreboard clock and the Golden State Warriors break into small groups to begin working at three separate, 20-minute stations: on the court, in the weight room or with the training staff. Coach Steve Kerr and his assistants met during the summer along with Stephen Curry and Draymond Green to review how they might practice more efficiently and with greater focus, and the resulting “Golden Hour” has meant so much to Golden State’s success so far.
Klay Thompson is playing a few more minutes now, making pretty passes and knocking down shots from all spots on the floor. “I really pride myself on my efficiency, so it felt good to be myself again,” Thompson said. Golden State's shooting star returned and scored 15 points to go with six assists after he sat out two games, Stephen Curry had 18 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, and the Warriors pounded Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks 130-92 on Tuesday night.
