    At the risk of jinxing him, it looks like Klay Thompson has his 3 point shot back.

    He had 43 points last night, and dribbled exactly 4 times the whole game.

    20 for his last 39 from 3 including 7 of 16 last night, still only at .356, he's never shot below 40% from 3 in an NBA season, worst ever was .401, but he appears to have his mojo back.

    Giannis with a bad pass or a perfectly timed throw, you be the judge.

    How is that not a foul?

    There is no one there but Harden. This should minimally be a flagrant foul and a fine.

    It can't get much worse than that.

    He was trying to get the ball to #13 (Brogdon, I think) in the corner. He was in line behind Harden, behind the three point line. You can see him in the lower right-hand corner. I didn't catch it until I played it the second time.

    Good catch. It tempers my reaction to it.

    I have a hard time believing he was purposefully trying to hit Harden. There was a player in the corner he was trying to pass to, but a one-handed overhead pass like that is hard to control.

    Yep and he probably put some extra heat on it to try and get it by Harden before he could react. Just didn't have enough control on it and missed his mark into Harden's face.

    After @SirStefan32 pointed out Brogdon was in the corner it changed my initial reaction. I missed it the first time around.

    What are you talking about? There was a Buck standing at the three point line in the corner. Harden was between that guy and Giannis.

    I’ll say this, if Giannis was trying to hit harden that’s an amazing throw. I mean a sweeping one armed throw that distance right into a dudes noggin?

    Harden seems to get the worst of em. I remember a long time ago when was with OKC, Ron Artest him with a brutal elbow to the head.

    Harden’s durability is impressive though because he doesn’t miss any games despite it all.
