“That was a pretty amazing performance,” Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said. “We know he’s capable of that. Everybody around here remembers his 37-point quarter, so it always feels like it’s a possibility [he can go off].”

Thompson’s 37-point quarter happened against the Sacramento Kings in a January 2015 game when he scored the significant mark in the 3rd quarter to post a then career-high 52 points.
