Warriors' Klay Thompson calls loss to Suns worst of season

Klay Thompson was understandably frustrated after the Warriors lost to the Suns 115-111 on Sunday at Oracle Arena.

In fact, the Golden State guard called it the lowest point of the team’s season — keep in mind the Warriors just suffered their worst home loss in the Steve Kerr era Tuesday.

“Probably the worst loss of the season, unfortunately,” Thompson told reporters after the game.

Thompson added: “I expect our crowd to be a little more into it too. Like I know it’s not the playoffs but it is our last go around in Oracle, the least you can do is stand up when we make a good play.”

The loss didn’t paint a good picture for the home team. Even though the Warriors (45-21) still have the best record in the Western Conference, they were unable to close out against a team that was 5-29 on the road prior to Sunday’s contest. 

In fact, the Suns closed as 17-point underdogs, making Phoenix’s victory the largest upset in an NBA game since March 6, 2016 (when the Lakers upset the Warriors as 17.5-point underdogs). 

Thompson finished the game with a team-high 28 points.

He shot 10 of 22 from the field and made four of his 15 3-point attempts.
