Klay Thompson brought a familiar sight to home fans at Oracle Arena, hitting an unconscious 8-of-9 from the floor for 21 first points to start the first quarter against the Orlando Magic in scorching fashion.
The Golden State Warriors sharpshooter drained shot after shot with the greatest of ease, “getting all he can eat” within the flow of the game. Take a look.

The 6-foot-7 swingman missed a couple of heat checks later in the quarter before departing for his usual late-quarter rest, finishing 8-of-11, including 4-of-6 from beyond the arc.
Thompson outscored the Magic 21-20 in the period all on his own — his third 20-point quarter of the season — finishing with 27 at the half.
Needless to say, we could be in for yet another treat from a red-hot deadeye shooter enjoying the kindness of the home rims.
