Two missed free throws in the first overtime followed by poor shot selection and failure to foul when the Warriors had one to give at a critical point in the contest all point to the kind of mistakes that drive coaches crazy. The most notable error Thompson made was a 3-point shot he took from the corner with 1:33 left in the second overtime that resulted in a quick change of possession as the Warriors held a four-point lead at the time. There were 15 second left on the shot clock when he took the shot.
He finished the game 9-of-26 from the field and and was 5 for 15 from the three-point line in a career-high 55 minutes. Incredibly, his two missed free-throws were his only two attempts in the game.
He'll have a chance to rebound when the Warriors face the Atlanta Hawks at the Oracle on Wednesday.
