4 three-pointers and seven assists, he is not a pure shooter this is the most horrible place Warriors
Golden State Warriors on the road to 118-105 victory over the Denver Nuggets, and achieved 15 wins and 0 losses start. Warriors main point guard Craig - Thompson played his most complete game of the season, played 31 minutes, 7 of 16 shots, 4-7 three-pointers, had a team-high 21 points and added seven assists ( and Curry tied a team-high).
Before the start of last season, Thompson and the Warriors re-signed a big contract. He then returns with a career-best performance of the team's confidence. Last season, Thompson has truly become the league in a number two position overall offensive and defensive players, he averaged 21.7 points, plus 2.9 assists, shooting percentage and three-point shooting rate of 46.3% and 43.9% respectively. Thompson and Curry composed by the "spray Brothers" has become today's NBA offensive firepower strongest backcourt.
However, since the beginning of the season, with the outbreak of the library is in stark contrast to Thompson's data decline. As of now, he averaged 16.2 points, the lowest in nearly three seasons since, but compared to last season, his shooting percentage (44.9 percent) and three-point shooting (38.7 percent) have different degrees of decline.
It should be said, Thompson data decline caused by a variety of factors, it is important that the Warriors array with too many scoring points, there are a lot of players can shoot threes, coupled with the outbreak of Curry, Thompson scored decline is forgiven. Moreover, Thompson flank defense to bear the heavy task, and this is an important value of his warriors.
The games against the Nuggets, Thompson played a very comprehensive performance, his outside shot is still robust, 7 of 16 shots, 4 of 7 three-pointers, led all scorers with 21 points. For once single scored over 37 points in Thompson, this is obviously nothing. Rare, today Thompson sent out seven assists, and Curry tied a team-high, but this is Thompson highest single-game assists this season. In addition, he appeared in the audience only one turnover.
Although Thompson's numbers look mediocre this season, but if the Warriors want to successfully defend soup God is still very important part.
