Bucks' strategy backfires as Warriors' scoring power shines

SAN FRANCISCO -- This wasn't the first time the Milwaukee Bucks saw Klay Thompson this season. It was, however, the first time they saw this version of Klay in a long time.

Antetokounmpo said Saturday night after the Warriors beat his Bucks, 122-109 at Chase Center. "It's almost like we kind of forgot who he is, you know."

The five-time NBA All-Star gave the Bucks and everybody else around the league a strong reminder of just how great he is, and how hot he can get in a hurry.

Thompson scored only four points in the first quarter and missed both his 3-point attempts. The second quarter was a whole new ballgame.

Vintage Klay showed up for a Saturday night in San Francisco, giving the home fans every reason to get louder and louder with each 3-pointer that splashed through the home nets.

Thompson totaled 17 points in the second quarter. He made five straight shots to open the quarter, including four straight 3-pointers, went 5-for-6 from deep and the only shot he missed was a running jumper.

That gave him 21 points for the half. The Warriors came into the night a perfect 6-0 when Thompson scored at least 20 points this season.
