Warriors’ Klay Thompson doesn’t think he’s in a shooting slump

Golden State Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson doesn’t believe he’s in a shooting slump, and the All-Star guard doesn’t care what the critics are saying about him right now.

Through 35 games, Klay Thompson is shooting 44.0 percent from the field and 33.7 percent from beyond the arc:

Thompson’s current 3-point percentage is a career low, but odds are the sharpshooter will get it together sooner rather than later. He’s too good of a shooter to not find his shooting stroke as the season moves along.

The Warriors are 23-12 on the season, good for first place in the Western Conference standings. Klay Thompson is averaging 21.0 points per game on the year. Even though his 3-point shot isn’t falling like it usually is, Golden State is still winning games at a high clip and Thompson is producing like the All-Star he is.

We are just so used to Klay Thompson shooting above 40.0 percent from deep that we get shocked when he’s not shooting at that rate. It’s such a long season, though, so there really is no need to worry. If Thompson says he’s going to be fine, he has the track record to prove we can trust him.

The Warriors host the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday night. Maybe this will be the game Klay Thompson goes crazy from the 3-point line.
