Beyond the game's immediate outcome, Klay Thompson achieved a historic feat by surpassing Jason Richardson and Jamaal Wilkes, securing the 159th spot on the all-time scoring list with a total of 14,645 points. 

The next milestone in his sights is Dan Issel's record of 14,659 points.


Despite a slow start to the season, Thompson's recent performances have been stellar, consistently scoring 20+ points in the last six games.

The Warriors have mirrored this improvement, currently enjoying a five-game winning streak, elevating their overall record to 15-14 and securing the tenth seed in the Western Conference.


As the Warriors gear up to face the Denver Nuggets on Monday, Thompson's contribution remains pivotal to their success.
