Is there anything Klay Thompson cannot do? On a team that boasts lots of offensive talent, Thompson has made the most out of his lethal shooting stroke. On a team that still struggles with consistency, Thompson has remained as steady as ever. On a team still trying to establish a defensive identity, Thompson remains reliable in the backcourt and even for a block on Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge in the Warriors’ victory on Thursday. “Klay is at his absolute peak for us now,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. Kerr said those words already in training camp. At that point, Kerr was talking about Warriors guard Stephen Curry, though. And as expected, Curry leads the Warriors in scoring (27.2 points per game), while Kevin Durant is not too far behind (25.2). As the the Warriors (6-3) have opened up the season with minor issues involving securing leads, slow starts turnovers and fouling, however, Kerr has considered Thompson the team’s most consistent player. Thompson has averaged 21.7 points per game on 52.7 percent shooting, a mark that would become a career-high if he sustains it in his seventh NBA season.
