Klay Thompson Accused of Playing for Lakers, NBA Twitter Reaction

The Golden State Warriors is on the brink of elimination, as the Los Angeles Lakers has three wins in this series. The Lakers went into Game 5 with the goal of winning the series. The defending champs have struggled with their defense so far in the series. Players like Jordan Poole, Klay Thompson and others have struggled to score. Thompson, despite criticisms for both players, has received more criticisms from fans and critics.

Thompson’s postseason isn’t the best of his career. In the 12 games that he’s played, Thompson has averaged 19.4 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.0 assists. He has not scored more than 20 in the past 12 games, except for his 30 point performance against LA in Game 2. He was also criticized by fans and critics for taking two shots from an unnecessarily awkward position in Game 4.

Klay Thompson continued to struggle in Game 5 as he scored only 10 points. He made 3-12 field shots and 2-6 three-pointers. Stephen Curry and Andrew Wiggins, who both looked to be in great form, scored 27 and 25 respectively. Golden State Warriors won Game 5 by a score of 106-211 at the end. They will, however, be worried about Thompson’s poor performance so far.

NBA Twitter reacts on Klay Thompson’s dry streak

Social media users are not tolerant of the Klay Thomson guard’s struggles. On Twitter, many are accusing Thompson of not being ‘the same old Klay’. They are frustrated that the Warriors are losing because players are not stepping forward. Thompson is also being mocked for wearing a Golden State Warriors shirt while playing for the Lakers. Some fan reactions on Twitter:

Golden State Warriors will now head to Los Angeles for the Game 6 of this series. Stephen Curry has been on top form as usual. The Warriors have a bad record on the road. They’ve only won two of their six away games in the postseason. The Lakers, despite winning both of their previous must-win road games, will be a tough opponent.

Klay Thompson will be the focus of attention as LeBron Jam, the purple and gold men and their team prepare for the next match. The Warriors are counting on their veteran shooting guard to perform better than ever before. The fans cheer for ‘Game 6 KLAY’ as the series moves to Game 6. Thompson has earned this name by consistently playing well in the Game 6 of series. Will the guard be able to redeem himself or will his struggles persist? On May 12th, we will know the answer.
