Klay Thompson Thanks The Pacific Ocean For Performance In Game 4
There are plenty of talented players in the Golden State Warriors, so if one has a bad stretch of games, the other will be able to pick up the slack. That’s exactly what happened to the Los Angeles Clippers during games one to three of their series, as Klay Thompson only scored 42 points in those combined games. Thompson went off for 32 points in the 113-105 win of the team on Sunday in game four, giving the team a 3-1 lead in the series.
When asked what the difference was in game four for Thompson, he gave a rather interesting answer which, according to ESPN, involved a dip in the Pacific Ocean.

“I didn’t think I had bad games, but I had no big games,” explained Thompson. “I told Jonas [Jerebko on Saturday] — we went to the beach and played some volleyball — I’m like, ‘Yo, I’m just going to jump into the ocean, and I know that’s going to reset my mind.’ And it worked. I don’t know if I’m going to jump [in the water] north [in the Bay Area] because it’s freezing, but it’s something I’m definitely going to contemplate if I’m not shooting the ball that well the rest of the yea.
