Klay Thompson delivered a masterclass off the bench, sinking seven 3-pointers and notching a season-high 35 points to guide the Golden State Warriors (27-26) to a thrilling 140-137 victory over the Utah Jazz (26-30) on Thursday night.

Thompson’s stellar performance came as he embraced a new role off the bench, marking his first stint as a reserve since his rookie season over a decade ago.

Thompson’s electrifying display was complemented by a standout performance from Draymond Green, who tallied a season-high 23 points, providing invaluable support in the Warriors’ hard-fought triumph.

Despite a spirited comeback attempt from the Jazz, led by Collin Sexton’s 35-point effort, the Warriors secured their eighth win in the last 10 games.

Utah’s rookie Keyonte George supported Sexton’s effort with 33 points of his own, but it wasn’t enough.

Despite Utah’s valiant efforts to claw their way back into contention, Golden State’s defensive resilience and clutch plays in the closing moments ensured they emerged victorious in a high-stakes showdown.
