Finally, after 941 days, we got to see Klay Thompson back in action. It was a night to remember. It was nothing short of spectacular. The ambiance of the Chase Center was like Game 7 of the finals. The crowd cheered and celebrated his return.
Klay Thompson scored the first basket of the GSW. There was a question in many people’s minds that will be 100% healthy. His poster on Lavar Stevens certainly answers our question. He crossed up Jarret Allen and dunked it all over Lavar. He also got hot in 3rd quarter, scoring 3 straight buckets. Showing off his mid-range and 3 point shooting. the league is in trouble. The splash brothers are back. Klay ended the night 17 points on 3 of 8 shooting from behind the arc.
NBA stars react to the return to Klay Thompson on Twitter
Today was all about wholesome moments. No one was happier than his other splash brother Stephen Curry. Curry’s son Cannon came into the locker and gave the game ball to Klay Thompson. Klay bein Klay roasted his Steph on Instagram saying “Already better court vision than his pops!”

Now, with Klay’s return, the Dubs are back with their championship aspirations. Already a team with the best record in the NBA is going to get better both defensively and offensively. The Splash Brothers are going to take the league by storm alongside Draymond and Iguodala.
