After the Golden State Warriors vaulted to an early lead, the Brooklyn Nets surged back into Saturday’s primetime contest behind Kyrie Irving. With Irving pushing the Nets into a battle, the Warriors needed a clutch bucket in the fourth quarter to seal a victory.

On Saturday, a vintage Klay Thompson jumper from beyond the arc helped close out the Nets.

With the Warriors clinging to a one-point advantage with just seconds remaining, Steph Curry flipped a pass to Thompson. After getting the ball, the 31-year-old shooting guard quickly pulled up to bury a deep triple with 12 seconds left in the contest.

Following Thompson’s jumper, the Warriors held a four-point lead over the Nets. Despite a tough 3-pointer from Irving on the following possession, it wasn’t enough to complete the comeback against the Warriors. After free throws from Thompson and Curry, the Warriors held on for a victory over the Nets, 110-106.

Thompson finished the contest with 16 points on 5-of-14 shooting from the field and 2-of-8 from deep with six boards, two assists, a steal and a block in 27 minutes against the Nets.
