Clay Thompson is training with Golden State ahead of returning to the pitches (from YouTube)

Golden State fans fantasized about these moments for two and a half years, and tonight (Tuesday through Wednesday) were a few minutes in which their fantasies came true: Clay Thompson's fiery hand returned to sniping, and Warriors fans bounced home the hall. Thompson finished with 21 points in just 22 minutes, and along with Steph Kerry led his team to an 86-102 victory over Detroit.



"I really enjoyed the evening, I wish I had a few more shots, but I just enjoyed it, it was fun," said Thompson, who admits he was trying to get into the rhythm, after more than two seasons he was absent from the pitches due to injuries, "surgeries, absences, injuries ... no "I don't care if I miss 100 shots in a row, I will never stop throwing in the basket. I like it too much, and I work too hard to stop."



It was again an encouraging game with for the Warriors, who have faded a bit recently, coming back from a round of away games that included three losses in four games, a total of five losses in the last seven games and allowed Phoenix to open a 2.5-game gap at the West Summit. Due to injury and Steph Kerry also missed one game due to wrist pain - but tonight were a few minutes where everything went again, the team was fiery, opened a gap of 30 points already in the first half, and especially the crowd again saw the deadliest weapon in the league, the Splash Brothers, provide minutes Of magic with slashes across the arc, which dismantle any opponent.

Tonight Kerry scored 18 points with 6 of 11 from the field and 4 threes and 8 assists, and teammate Andrew Wiggins knows: "It happens fast, when the Splas Brothers heat up, heck, it's almost impossible to stop it."

Clay came into the game with 35.7 percent from the field and 35.7 percent from the three in his first four games since returning, and looked a little rusty quite predictably, but made it clear that even the fouls would not deter him from trying to get back to himself, and today improved the percentage slightly by 6 of 13 from the field.

He finished the first half with 17 points in 11 minutes, including a typical move and a three on the buzzer that jumped the crowd.

"It was great. It was probably his best piece in some games he's played so far," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

"It was good to see him warm up and hear the crowd behind him."

The Pistons also know that this is a dangerous weapon.

"Once they started seeing their threes come in, they started to light up," said Isaiah Stuart of Detroit.



Even before the game, Steph Kerry made it clear that there is no pressure on Thompson, and the team understands that his integration will take time.

"He knows April, May, June, that's the real thing, and I'm already dying to see it," Kerry said, "but I told him, no pressure." Thompson admitted it was his best game since returning. "No doubt," he said, "Some shots came in, some hard shots while on the move ... I was just happy to see them dive in."
