Klay Thompson knows how to get it.

The five-time All-Star and four-time NBA champion helped lead the Golden State Warriors to a 127-120 victory over the Houston Rockets on Sunday.

The future Hall of Famer was praised on social media.

Klay with the I-told-you-so performance

Klay Thompson is making me think that maybe we shouldn't judge Hall of Fame players after 10 slumping games after missing camp

Klay Thompson is having a "read your tweets before the game" game

The demise of Klay Thompson has been greatly exaggerated.

There is no demise of Klay Thompson; just a re-invention with a different ceiling. #DubNation

Thompson entered the game shooting just 36.3% from the field and 34.6% from three-point range. The marks would be the worst of his career.

Thompson missed the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons due to injuries, but is working himself back into shape. Sunday was a reminder of how dangerous he can be when he's hot, even though he won't reach the heights he did in his prime.

The Warriors have gone 5-2 in their last seven after a slow start to the season, and a few more showings like that would raise the ceiling.
