All athletes have experienced the feeling of being in the zone, but none of our readers have ever been as locked in as Golden State’s Klay Thompson was during Friday night’s game against Sacramento.

NBA fans know that the Warriors’ Steph Curry is the best shooter in the game today, but the often overlooked Thompson — the second half of Golden State’s “Splash Bros” back court — looked just about perfect while putting up an astounding 37 points in the third, an NBA all-time record for points in a single quarter.


Biden can’t believe it.

Klay finished the night with 52 points — a career high — and his 9 3-pointers in the third quarter also set an NBA record. Thanks to Thompson’s historic performance, the Warriors easily dispatched Sacramento, 126-101, and last night’s win gave the team a franchise-best 18 consecutive wins at home.
