OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Klay Thompson scored 26 of his 42 points in a sensational second quarter, and the Golden State Warriors beat the undermanned Memphis Grizzlies 111-107 on Monday night.
The All-Star guard outshined teammate and MVP candidate Stephen Curry for a change with his own streaky shooting stretch. Thompson finished 15 of 21 from the floor, including 8 of 10 from 3-point range, to help the top-seeded Warriors (66-15) tune up for the playoffs with another impressive performance.
Golden State led by 32 points in the third quarter before resting its regulars. Memphis moved within four in the final seconds to give the game a little drama.
But the rally came too late.
