NBA players around the league are trying to find ways to spend their time away from the hardwood. It appears Steph Curry is enjoying his time off by watching classic Golden State Warriors games.
On Wednesday night, Curry tweeted out that he watched a rerun of Klay Thompson dropping 60 points on the Indiana Pacers back in 2016. What made this performance so incredible was that Thompson only played 29 minutes.
Thompson went 21-for-33 from the field and 8-for-14 from 3-point range. He didn’t even suit up for the fourth quarter of that game, but still managed to finish with 60 points.
Curry shared his experience of watching Thompson decimate the Pacers on social media, saying “I legit was watching it like it was live. For 48 min my soul smiled! That boy good.”

This wasn’t the only time that Thompson left the fans at Oracle Arena in awe.
Back in 2015, Thompson set an NBA record by scoring 37 points in one quarter against the Sacramento Kings.
Thompson hasn’t played at the Warrior’s new arena yet due to his ACL injury. He’ll have the chance to do that next season though.
As for when the NBA could possibly return in 2020, the current hope is that the regular season can resume before July.
