Klay Thompson reveals Golden State morale after tough loss

0

The Golden State Warriors dropped Game 1 of the NBA Finals in heartbreaking fashion, blasting a lead in the late 4th quarter on a Boston Celtics team that caught fire at the right time. Despite Jayson Tatum scoring just 12 points on 3/17 shooting, Boston prevailed behind dominant performances from several key role players.

Al Horford led Boston by 26 points on 6/8 from deep, and his performance was pegged to 21 points from Derrick White and 24 points from Jaylen Brown. With Tatum’s supporting cast playing like this, his poor night of filming was overshadowed by a furious comeback that gave Boston a Game 1 win.

Warriors guard Klay Thompson was asked specifically about the team’s mindset after such a game, saying: “It’s never fun and it hurts. On the big stage, of course. But like Draymond said, there’s no need to panic. I still like our chances. We’re going home, digesting what happened and I know we’ll be better in Game 2.

With their well-documented ability to win on the road, the Warriors remain confident they can overcome this heavy defeat. It will require more consistent focus throughout the game, but the team believe they have the ability to do just that.

While this loss hurts, there are some positives for Golden State that will look to build on as they head towards a vital Game 2.
