Klay Thompson nails game winning three for Warriors (VIDEO)

Mar 7, 2013, 8:43 AM EDT

Klay Thompson gets the glory because he hit the dagger shot, but Stephen Curry and David Lee made this possible.

Off the inbounds, the play has Curry come off a high Lee/Andrew Bogut double screen. Lee’s man goes to trap Curry and that’s where Lee makes the smart move and pops out rather than rolls (as Thompson said later the play called for) to both give Curry a target and space the floor. Curry finds Lee with the bounce pass and Lee quickly passes to Thompson in the corner.

Notice where John Salmons is — he anticipates a Lee drive and sags down into the paint almost. At least I guess that’s what he was thinking. Whatever it was he left the deadly Thompson alone in the right corner and the Warriors got the win because of it.

A win the Warriors needed, what with the Lakers winning again and the Jazz and Rockets both losing. The Warriors need to stop the little skid they are on and this is a good start.

    And the Kings passed on Thompson for ….ready …Jimmer…what a player Klay is becoming. Before the draft, I never thought Klay and Knight would be drafted after Jimmer!
