You’d expect Klay Thompson to come in clutch from long-range, but the Warriors shooting guard had a different approach in a 2018 matchup with the Sacramento Kings.
With Golden State down 116-115, Kevin Durant missed a fadeaway jumper that would’ve gave the Dubs the lead. Andre Iguodala corralled the rebound though and the ball eventually got to Klay with the shot clock turned off. Thompson moved quick, driving left past his defender before being met by Kings big man Willie Cauley-Stein. The good defense forced a wild shot from Klay that hit all backboard and no rim. Luckily enough, the ball bounced straight back into Thompson’s hands, who used both to tip in the ball with just 5 seconds remaining. Klay backpedaled on defense afterwards, flexing his right arm in the process.
The sneaker Klay wore for this interesting moment was the ANTA KT 4. This featured a new cushioning system called A-Flashfoam with extra bounce similar to that of adidas Boost. This foam is allowed to expand on most of the midsole except for the lateral heel section, which is caged to support lateral movements. The premium knitted upper and solid fingerprint traction carried over from the KT 3.
