Klay Thompson’s streak of 95 games with a 3-pointer scored comes to an end
Some good things just have to come to an end. In this case, it was Golden State Warriors star guard Klay Thompson’s 95 consecutive games in which he made a 3-point basket.
According to a tweet from Anthony Slater and confirmed by Basketball-Reference, Thompson’s 95-game streak came to an end on Friday night during the Warriors’ 108-94 road victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.
This 3-pointer streak, which trailed only Warriors teammate Stephen Curry (157 consecutive games) and Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyle Korver (127 consecutive games), puts Thompson in third place all-time for most games in a row with at least one 3-pointer made.
Yep: Klay Thompson fails to hit a 3 (0-of-2), breaking his streak at 95 straight games, the third longest streak of all-time https://t.co/5BpxcQuw9H

That’s okay, though. At least Thomspon can say that he has the record for most 3-point baskets made in one quarter with nine, which occurred almost three years ago during the 2014-15 season at the third quarter of a game against the Sacramento Kings.
Thompson, who finished with 12 points on just 4-of-11 shots from the floor, also made news during the fourth quarter of Friday night’s game at BMO Harris Bradley Center for a confrontation he got into with a Bucks fan who heckled him.
After the game, Thompson opened up to Warriors beat reporter Mark Medina of The Mercury News regarding the incident with the fan, who was escorted from his seat out of the arena.

The Warriors, who began their tough five-game road trip tonight against the Bucks, are right back at it on Saturday night when they travel to take on the surging Toronto Raptors (29-11) at Air Canada Center.
