Golden State Warriors have faced a challenging NBA season, but sports analyst Stephen A. Smith sees hope in Klay Thompson’s resurgence and Jonathan Kuminga’s emergence as a starter.

Smith praised Kuminga’s elevated performance and the team’s defensive improvements, suggesting a potential turnaround for the struggling Warriors.

“If Klay Thompson finds his shot again with Steph Curry playing the way he’s playing… It changes everything,” Smith remarked on ESPN’s First Take.

Thompson’s recent stellar performance off the bench, scoring 35 points against the Utah Jazz, highlights his potential impact in reviving the team’s fortunes.

Kuminga’s promotion to the starting lineup has also been instrumental, with the young forward averaging career-high 15.5 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 25.6 minutes per game.
