Warriors’ Klay Thompson jokes about being hurt by Stephen Curry’s 4-point play at All-Star Game
Sunday night’s All-Star Game in Charlotte was home to plenty of noteworthy moments. From old teammates rekindling their lobbing ways to current tandems going at each other on opposing ends. Well, the Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson was an example of the latter.
At the nine-minute mark of the fourth quarter, Curry received a cross-court pass from the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook, proceeding to bait Thompson into fouling him as Curry converted on a three-pointer.

Right the game, Thompson looked back on the play with “hurt” feelings in his interview.
“I’m happy. It was a fun experience and the only thing that hurt was when Steph hit that four-pointer on me. That hurt.”
Team LeBron, though, hurt Team Giannis more, 178-164, as they were led by Kevin Durant who went on to score 31 points and grab seven rebounds. Thompson, for his part, finished with 20 points, eight rebounds, and four assists.
Thompson wasn’t done with his banter on Curry. In speaking with reporters, the Warriors shooting guard further denounced his fellow Splash Brother’s act — all in good fun, per Anthony Slater of The Athletic.
“What a terrible sport…Should’ve got a T.”
Curry and Thompson will have a few days of rest and relaxation before returning to court and continue the Warriors’ quest for a three-peat.
