Klay Thompson’s 37 Point Quarter


Klay Thompson’s 37 Point Quarter


January 23, 2015, Klay Thompson scored an NBA record 37 points in one quarter (3rd quarter) against the Sacramento Kings! Even though I’ve seen it numerous times, it still seems unreal.

After the Kings opened the half on a 7-0 run to take a 58-56 lead, Thompson redefined “on fire” by hitting all 13 of his field-goal attempts, including nine three-pointers. Perhaps most remarkably, Thompson set the mark by shooting only two free throws to finish off his scoring with four seconds remaining in the period. Everyone knew he was getting the ball and they just couldn’t stop him.

Thompson finished the night Gongfu Tea Cup 52 points (16-of-25 FG, 11-of-15 3FG, 9-of-10 FT), five assists, four steals, and two blocks.

If this were “NBA Jam,” Klay Thompson would have been on fire, forever — no heat check ridiculous enough to stop him.
