Klay Thompson Can Make NBA History In Warriors-Kings Game
On Friday evening, Klay Thompson and the Golden State Warriors will face off against the Sacramento Kings (in Sacramento) for their second game of the season.
The Warriors are coming off a 108-104 loss to the Phoenix Suns, and the entire team shot just 35.6% from the field.
In Friday's game, Thompson has a chance to make NBA history, as he is only six three-pointers away from passing Jamal Crawford for tenth on the all-time three-pointers made list.
Thompson has made 2,216 three-pointers, while Crawford (who is retired) made 2,221 over 20 seasons in the NBA.
Thompson has proven to be among the best three-point shooters ever and has shot 41.6% from the three-point range for his career.
Last year, he made 6+ three-pointers in 18 games, so there is a real chance he could move ahead of Crawford by the end of the game.
Thompson was the 11th pick in the 2011 NBA Draft out of Washington State, and has spent his entire career with Golden State.
He has has helped them win the four NBA Championships (and make the NBA Finals six times) over the previous nine seasons.
The five-time All-Star has career averages of 19.8 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists per contest while shooting 45.5% from the field and 41.6% from the three-point range in 717 regular season games.
