Klay Thompson‘s disappointing performance in last night’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder is putting fans through a rollercoaster. Nicknamed one of the “Splash Brothers,” the league knows him well for his shooting prowess, especially from beyond the arc. However, tonight might be changing some people’s minds.

Klay Thompson’s disappointing Performance Is Causing A Commotion

With Stephen Curry‘s absence due to a knee injury, much of the spotlight is shining on his fellow Splash Brother. However, he’s not giving the nickname justice.

In last night’s game, he put up a lackluster performance. He only made one of his ten shots. Moreover, he only made one out of his six three-point attempts. That’s respectively 10 percent of his field goals made and 17 percent of his three-point field goals.

It isn’t only tonight, though. The shooter has been below average from the field goal for the last three games since the latest Minnesota Timberwolves game won’t count due to an ejection.

In the Golden State Warriors‘ loss against the Denver Nuggets, he shot decently overall with 42 percent shooting but only made 25 percent from beyond the arc—that’s two of eight three-point attempts. He had two turnovers that night, too.

Against the Cleveland Cavaliers, he made 31 percent of his field goals while making 40 percent of his three-point shots. Furthermore, he clocked in three turnovers.

In the first game against the Timberwolves, his shots went in 31 percent of the time, with three of 10 three-pointers going in for a 30 percent three-point field goal percentage.

Fans Are Clowning Him

As always, when a player is underperforming, it doesn’t take long for NBA fans to gloat about it.

Even before the game ended, people were already posting his disappointing performance for the night.

The performance was so underwhelming that he’s trending on X (formerly Twitter) with 6,200 posts made in the last few hours.

This isn’t looking good for his contract extension with the team. Could Chris Paul’s praises be misplaced?

While their new point guard is impressing their coach, which might help them get another ring, the team’s performance without Curry is worrying.

Do you think this is just an unlucky cold streak for the four-time NBA champ?
