Klay shot 34% in the series (34/99), including 25%(!) (14/56) in the last 4 games. Just crippling momentum killers

[–][SAS] Tim Duncanrattatatouille 1404 points1405 points  (17 children)

Like I said, he's been in Cancun mentally since Game 3

[–]Suns1_quantae 232 points233 points  (0 children)

That 3 he took at the end of Game 4 was definitely an “i want to go on vacation” type of shot if I’ve ever seen one.

[–]CelticsMission_Pay_3373 285 points286 points  (1 child)

[–]RaptorsJayson1222 3026 points3027 points  (31 children)

8 points on 19 shots is legitimately insane

[–]Maverickstripledirks 1105 points1106 points  (20 children)

Game 6 Klay for ya

[–]Tampa Bay RaptorsRaptors2017champs 206 points207 points  (15 children)

We bringing back China Klay?

[–]SunsDjLionOrder 5472 points5473 points  (195 children)

AD with the most dominant 9 FGA game I’ve ever seen.

[–]NuggetsChidoriyama 2548 points2549 points  (109 children)

Guy could have 0 FGA and his paint defense would still make him essential

[–]Lakersdpete88 1356 points1357 points  (76 children)

Just wait till next round when we start hearing about even number game Davis again like he didn't dominate both game 6s

[–]RaptorsMuglah 328 points329 points  (21 children)

Some people on this sub are already saying AD had an okay game 6 vs. Memphis even though that was honestly one of his best performances ever.

[–]SpursPenisBlood 193 points194 points  (7 children)

It was quite literally one of the most dominant masterclass big man defensive God games I have seen in 25 years.

[–]justsomedude717 55 points56 points  (3 children)

It was legitimately one of the best defensive performances I’ve seen in my life

[–]Lakerssharkhuh 639 points640 points  (41 children)

He dominated all but maybe 1 game this series. The narrative should be dead. Only people who perpetuate it now are those idiots who just look at the points column

[–]LakersLeadantagonist 344 points345 points  (26 children)

and that game, wasn't even about AD not being dominant it was about the warriors scheming around his dominance to pull him out of the paint so they can finally have some open looks down there.

Instead of giving the Warriors credit for changing up their offensive scheme, we just got ppl shitting on AD. Unreal.

[–]LakersYouKilledKenny12 37 points38 points  (0 children)

And was great in Game 4 in this series

[–]Gran DestinoIWantANewBeginning 120 points121 points  (2 children)

So many shot attempts diverted. Everyone was scared to take shots near him.

[–]LakersJesusSama 216 points217 points  (6 children)

He was not going to give up on any rebounds.

[–]NBAKaptainMurica96 612 points613 points  (39 children)

It's crazy how dominant he is when he's healthy. Both him and Kawhi are the biggest what ifs in this era.

[–]HawksAchyBreaker 439 points440 points  (10 children)

Defense and rebounding off the fucking charts with the ability to score when needed is truly nuts.

Man had 20 fuckin rebounds and a couple steals and blocks, with 17 points on 9 FGA. If he sank his other 3 FTs he would've had a 20/20 game. Nuts.

[–]Lakerscaughtinthought 54 points55 points  (8 children)

He's a legit freak. His arms were deflecting balls that looked like glitches on my tv

[–]MavericksSterlingMallory 1622 points1623 points  (17 children)

I'm starting to think that corgi doesn't know a damn thing about basketball

[–]LakersFlovust 202 points203 points  (12 children)

that corgi got a bunch of predictions wrong in prior rounds too.

[–]MavericksSterlingMallory 257 points258 points  (10 children)

Probably doesn't even watch the games

[–]RaptorsJayson1222 4554 points4555 points  (124 children)

It is time to give up on Game 6 Klay

[–][MIA] Gary Paytonjc-f 2729 points2730 points  (54 children)

Klay Thompson: 3-19 (2-12 from 3), 8 points, -33 +/-

Austin Reaves: 7-12 (4-5 from 3), 23 points, +24 +/-

[–]NBAPapiiPapiiPoom 1526 points1527 points  (27 children)

Game 6 Reaves

[–]LakersJesusSama 237 points238 points  (3 children)

AustHIM Reaves is a go. Buy, buy, buy!

[–]NBAMemeMeOnce 196 points197 points  (5 children)

Klay and Jimmer Fredette will be special on primetime CCTV

[–]ColdPressedSteak 150 points151 points  (2 children)

Klay after game 2:

5/14, 3/11, 3/12, and 3/18 tonight. Epic sell

[–]slysonic7 4456 points4457 points  (187 children)

LeBron was absolutely incredible tonight. It ends looking like a blowout but there were so many times where it was around 11-14 points and Warriors looked to have a bit of momentum. He basically always followed that up by driving aggressively or setting up a shooter. Vintage performance

[–]Cavaliersitssensei 1832 points1833 points  (71 children)

The craziest part? He played almost every second until they took all the starters off at the end

[–]KingsBirdamus 1309 points1310 points  (64 children)

How tf he still doing this? It’s insane that he’s still this good at this age. Insane.

[–]heyimric 327 points328 points  (7 children)

Dude just knows how to use his energy. It's insane.

[–]Senior_Ad_7640 165 points166 points  (3 children)

Yeah, he knows how to time his limited game takeovers.

[–]Lakerscaughtinthought 32 points33 points  (0 children)

He actually started strategically turning it up in the 3rd Q to stop the warriors patented post-half runs. He dominated the 3rd q specifically in this game and game 3

[–]Cavaliersitssensei 552 points553 points  (4 children)

Just GOAT things

[–]KingsDemonicDimples 1238 points1239 points  (37 children)

Yeah master class game by Lebron

[–]LakersSchneeky 857 points858 points  (35 children)

Now they get 3 days off that's huge for old man Bron

[–]TMNSquirtles007 472 points473 points  (29 children)

They probably go all out to steal Game 1 in Denver. Will be such an exciting series to watch. Hoping for a bubble finals rematch!

[–]Italygentyent 176 points177 points  (4 children)

Lebron is the greatest floor general to ever play the game. No one controls the pace of a game like he does.

[–]woodropete 168 points169 points  (2 children)

Their defense,the Help and rotation is super. Then u got davis down there its tough.

[–]Lakersdeepfakefuccboi 526 points527 points  (17 children)

And he’s injured still. He’s not even as good as he was earlier in the season. He’s been saving his energy until this game to close them out.

[–]WizardsMattya929 291 points292 points  (7 children)

Two series now, every pivotal game in a series he’s shown up. Both series game 1 and 4, now this game.

Next series is going to be great.

[–]Lakersdeepfakefuccboi 103 points104 points  (4 children)

Yup the Suns defense was terrible tbh. This will definitely be a hard series, probably the hardest of the season. The East looked strong going into the playoffs but now does not look convincing at all with the terrible coaching outside of Spoelstra. If anyone can stop Denver it’s us, if they beat us they probably win the whole thing.

[–]NBAiRockaflame 7697 points7698 points  (380 children)

[–]Tampa Bay RaptorsGardinerExpressway 75 points76 points  (2 children)

Its actually amazing, they gave up their good role players for Russ and everyone knew it would be terrible. So they somehow managed to just undo it.

[–][MIA] Gary Paytonjc-f 200 points201 points  (2 children)

Klay paid homage to the Lakers’ season start with his 3pt shooting

[–][LAL] Anthony DavisSmoothBrews 453 points454 points  (14 children)

That was basically a different team. The trades to get rui, Vanderbilt, and DLo were HUGE for us

[–][LAL] Alex CarusoVermillion_Crab 1357 points1358 points  (29 children)

• Started 2-10 in the regular season

• 13th seed at the All Star Break

• Knock out the #2 seed in the first round

• Knock out the defending champs in the second round

• 4 wins away from the NBA Finals

What the hell is this timeline? I don't want to get off this ride now. Lol

[–]Lakersechtav 797 points798 points  (4 children)

Down 15 in the play-in game and had to go to OT too

Steph Carry and Klank Thompson ain’t getting it done.

[–]SaintDjordje 32 points33 points  (3 children)

I thought that the Warriors second best player was... Donte Divincenzo. No offense to Donte but that is not enough to win a game.

[–]KnicksEmergency-Double-875 3718 points3719 points  (49 children)

Why didn’t the Warriors just score? Are they stupid?

[–]Lakersienjoybasketball24 1542 points1543 points  (10 children)

they call steve kerr one of the best coaches but he did not tell his team to simply score more than the other team???

I purposely ignored all this corgi talk not wanting to know what it was about so not to allow it to come to truth. It felt positive toward the warriors so had to ingore it.

[–]PistonsMonitorStandGuy 59 points60 points  (3 children)

This one Tiktok account has a dog hitting a basketball down a set of stairs and landing into one of two baskets. Each shot represents the outcome of a game in the series. It had the Lakers blowing a 3-1 in the order of WLWWLLL

LeBron has now won 16 straight closeout games at home in the playoffs.

He is also 76-0 when his team is leading by 10+ entering the 4th quarter.


[–]Thunderhomefree122 1140 points1141 points  (34 children)

Ngl I was not confident the Lakers had the win solidified until the three minute mark. That’s how much this Warriors team had fucked with my head.

[–]LakersSupervenientLemon 672 points673 points  (10 children)

Warriors are the horror movie villain where stabbing and shooting aren't enough, need full dismemberment to take a breath.

[–][LAL] LeBron Jamesnaive-dragon 140 points141 points  (1 child)

They need a triple tap for sure.

[–]Lower-Kangaroo6032 37 points38 points  (2 children)

Credit I will give to the lakers for realizing that and staying with what worked so relentlessly in the 4th qtr.

[–]Lakersvongoladecimo_ 179 points180 points  (1 child)

Because no lead is safe with the Warriors. Anytime they can mount a 15-0 run within a blink of an eye and you dont even know what hit you.

30/9/9, hyper efficient, 43 minutes (more than anybody else tonight)

Best game of the playoffs in the most must-win game to date. I thought his age was finally showing with him averaging low 20's all playoffs but damn if he didn't deliver tonight. This is going to be his... 12th Conference Finals? Insanity.

[–]TimberwolvesDeanEvasonPunch 278 points279 points  (12 children)

It seemed far fetched for "a year of old LeBron" but now do we need to start having real conversations about how high Bronny will be drafted if that package includes dad?

[–]Australianick170100 405 points406 points  (6 children)

The actual game changer was that reaves half court shot buzzer beater

From potentially the lead being cut to 4 or 6 instead pushes the lead out to 10 at half time

[–][SEA] Jerome JamesDG_Now 114 points115 points  (0 children)

It's kind of what Steph did in game 4; put the lead to 11 instead of 8 and it felt insurmountable after that.

troy bolton living his dreams hitting clutch shots for the lakers in the playoffs

[–]OleRockTheGoodAg 1303 points1304 points  (60 children)

Over the last 3 games, Klay Thompson shot 9-42 from the field (21.4%) and 7-27 from deep (25.9%).

In the same span, Jordan Poole shot 8-28 (28.5%) and 1-11 from deep (9%).

Never thought I'd say this, but Steph needs help. Steph scored 10 or more buckets in EACH of the last 3 games.

[–]Cavaliersianbits 560 points561 points  (23 children)

I mean he does.

It fucking sucks that Klay had so many injuries, but they really have impacted him. Poole was a non factor.

Curry played great but he's running the offense every time down and they're hunting him on defense, he was obviously gassed.

[–]FanofK 159 points160 points  (5 children)

Not just that but being double sometimes tripled every time he touches the ball on offense because no one was respected. Dray can shoot, Poole and Klay straight off, wiggins was bricking 3s, DiVincenzo was pretty forgettable, GP2 had his moments.

[–]JumpinJimRivers 170 points171 points  (1 child)

DiVincenzo was their 2nd best player tonight at least on offense. But he's not gonna be the one creating in general

[–][MIA] Dwyane Wadenot_a_bot__ 102 points103 points  (0 children)

[–]Toronto HuskiesZbz 120 points121 points  (0 children)

The corgi was a false prophet

[–]Cavaliersordervs 758 points759 points  (78 children)

Klay seems like he might be washed. Dont know that he'll ever be pre-injury Klay again on defense or with his shot. Curry had a great series overall. But when they asked him to play on-ball and orchestrate all game you could tell he didn't have the legs for it. The Lakers length and athleticism inside had him (and all the Warriors) spooked. Steph was short on a lot of shots, missed some open 3s and a lot less active off ball. Makes you realize how absurd it was watching Lebron drag those Cavs teams and do everything offensively and defensively 45 minutes per night.

The Lakers seem like they will beat anyone when they bring their A+ game defensively. I’m curious to see if they can keep this up for another 10-14 games though. Especially next series having more travel and the Denver altitude, while still only having 1 day of rest between each game. Lebron is really picking his spots on offense. He seems to know he only has 8-10 dominant minutes on offense per game. They'll likely need more from him against Denver.

[–]ThunderaPatheticBeing 183 points184 points  (3 children)

It was super obvious when AD was able to stay in the paint compared to when he wasn't. Steph missed like every shot in the paint when AD was there, and made 3-4 floaters/layups when he wasn't.

[–]Lakersmillenniumpianist 38 points39 points  (1 child)

There was that one floater where AD just being in the vicinity made Steph shoot it super short. Warriors players were seeing ghosts all series.

[–]Pornviewinguser 189 points190 points  (24 children)

I'm interested to see how they'll play against a team that actually has a center. It's going to be a fun series.

[–]LakersTheDarkSkinProphet 391 points392 points  (14 children)

I’m just appreciating greatness while I can. Love bron

[–]SpursHaksaI 1191 points1192 points  (84 children)

It’s so refreshing to watch this matchup with LeBron finally being the one with the better supporting cast. Can’t believe injuries in 2015, then Kevin Durant joining the juggernaut in 2017 really has people disrespecting LeBron James’ greatness. I can definitely respect MJ over LeBron if you think that, but some absolutely delusional people don’t even have him top two all time. Plain and simple, a horrendously ridiculous take. It’s crazy how blinding hatred can be. The combination of ELITE talent, skill, and IQ is something that I have been blessed to watch over the last twenty years. GGs to both teams. I hope Curry doesn’t receive the same legacy slander that James did when the positions were flipped.

[–]CavaliersTheSmokedSalmon420 656 points657 points  (26 children)

Bron had to deal with both the prime Spurs dynasty and Warriors dynasty and each one started and ended like 30 years from each other lol

[–]LakersThaRealSunGod 367 points368 points  (13 children)

Not to mention those 2 dynasties are responsible for 8/10 Bron finals opponents and 5/6 of his losses.

How trash. Living in the NBA Finals and only losing to one of the best teams, or best coaches and teams, of all time

[–]spydormunkay 131 points132 points  (5 children)

10x Finals appearances is just absurd. Idk how anyone can credibly call another player besides Jordan better than him with that Chamberlain level stat line in the modern NBA.

[–]Kingsrunthepoint1 50 points51 points  (4 children)

More absurd that it was 9 in a row

I stand corrected, 8 in a row, part of a 9/10.

[–]madism 52 points53 points  (1 child)

Thank you LeBron and Steph Curry for some of the best basketball I've ever watched go down between two great players over the years.

Props. We may never see them go at it again but it's been a pleasure.

[–]Lakerstrevorturtle 46 points47 points  (0 children)

Cranjis McBasketball called Lakers in 6 as well.

[–]LakersSchwelby 58 points59 points  (3 children)

Skip Bayless - surprisingly Lakers in 5

[–][CLE] LeBron Jamesjohnguz 36 points37 points  (1 child)

He’s been more tame toward LeBron in his older years but Skip has historically had a tendency to pick LeBron teams.

It’s a trick he’s used so that if they win he can act like they were supposed to, and if they lose it was some collapse.

Game 6 Klay shit on by Lonnie Walker the fucking IV. LMFAO.

[–]Bulls_Did_ 294 points295 points  (6 children)

[–]Lakersahr3410 528 points529 points  (10 children)

2-10 to ending a dynasty

[–][SAC] Jason Williamstransizzle 68 points69 points  (0 children)

Game 6 Klay can be retired from the basketball lexicon permanently

[–]SupersonicsGuyMaxwell 1452 points1453 points  (82 children)

Oh how I love watching the Warriors lose. Thank you, Lakers.

[–]Thunderhomefree122 631 points632 points  (30 children)

This entire sub is like Frodo from Lord of the Rings.


[–]LakersTetsuoS2 430 points431 points  (27 children)

It's time to get hated again on Tuesday.

[–]Thunderhomefree122 267 points268 points  (9 children)

Lmfao I’m sorry but yes this is so true.

[–]Heattriosway 106 points107 points  (2 children)

Absolutely. Thank you guys and fuck you guys

[–]KingsOptimusGrime707 127 points128 points  (3 children)

Thanks Lakers

Now I can go back to hating you lmao

[–]cynicalspindle 183 points184 points  (28 children)

People really hate the warriors that much that they root for Lebron/Lakers lol.

[–]CavaliersScrogger19 86 points87 points  (3 children)

Absolutely yes here, but that’s because I’m a Cavs fan. But every Cavs fan I know was low key rooting for the Lakers just for LeBron, and high key against the Warriors because yeah we hate them lol.

[–]LakersKingDavid920 31 points32 points  (5 children)

I’m still amazed that for 2 straight series, r/nba wanted Lakers to win.

[–]NuggetsAndoArugula 65 points66 points  (0 children)

Klay holding up 4 fingers but it's actually to indicate his field goal percentage

[–]SpursGGezpzMuppy 398 points399 points  (31 children)

Jordan realised he needed white centres to win rings and now Lebron finally realising he needs white guards.

[–]Minneapolis Lakersrawchess 127 points128 points  (22 children)

Undrafted 6'5 white boy from the deep South earns Bron's trust and elevates the team to contention


[–]JordanBoth_Funny4896 1448 points1449 points  (135 children)

The END of the Warriors Dynasty.

[–]RaptorsmMounirM 124 points125 points  (9 children)

Klay and Poole congrats on letting Curry down!

[–]HeatNumber333 36 points37 points  (0 children)

Y'all said this after they lost to Memphis in the play-in. I'mma need to see Draymond's body this offseason on another team to confirm it.

[–]Lakerssfsalad 72 points73 points  (7 children)

Still too early to tell. People thought the dynasty was over when KD and Klay were injured in the 2019 finals against the Raptors. And then they won 3 years later

[–]OleRockTheGoodAg 265 points266 points  (28 children)

Over the last 3 games, Klay Thompson shot 9-42 from the field (21.4%) and 7-27 from deep (25.9%).

In the same span, Jordan Poole shot 8-28 (28.5%) and 1-11 from deep (9%).

Never thought I'd say this, but Steph needs help.
