Warriors' Klay Thompson quietly gets the job done

OAKLAND -- Klay Thompson can shoot the daylights out with a basketball. "He doesn't need anything else."Thompson said he doesn't put too much pressure on himself to make shots so long as they're high-percentage ones. In it, with his mouth agape, a cartoon version of Thompson said, "Wait, what are we talking about? I zoned out.""We've got to make sure that Klay's always locked in because he's away with the fairies sometimes," Bogut said, smiling.

Thompson: Klay Thompson picks up slack with Curry sidelined

Eventually Thompson (with the help of the Warriors' bench) figured out how to get cleaner looks. That means Curry will have a full week of rest before the Warriors play another game.More than anything, Game 5 was a reminder of how good Thompson can be when he's on his game. The Rockets' veteran wing gave Thompson problems in Game 3 and parts of Game 4. Over the last six quarters in the series, Thompson totaled 39 points on 14 of 20 shooting.
