He’s one of the best shooters in the world and can land some out-of-this-world threes.
But during these Finals, Thompson has been inconsistent at times.
That wasn’t the case on Monday night, as he went for 21 points in a massive 104-94 victory over the Boston Celtics.
Golden State is now just one win away from another championship trophy.
If Thompson continues to play as he did Monday, that win could be there very soon.

Thompson went 5-of-11 from the three-point line and achieved a big milestone while doing so.
He now joins Steph Curry and LeBron James as the only players in the history of the NBA Finals to reach 100 career three-pointers.
His hand was very hot on Monday night.
How will it be on Thursday for Game 6?
The big question now is if Thompson can keep it up as the series moves over to Boston for Game 6.
Golden State is looking for just one more win, they want to put this series and season to bed at TD Garden.
If that’s going to happen, the team will need Thompson to keep shooting as he was on Monday evening.
While it’s true that the Warriors are so much more than simply a team that puts up many threes in a game, it’s no secret that Thompson being a threat from downtown is a key to a W.
When Thompson gets going, he is nearly impossible to slow down or defend.
That’s because he is a master of the catch-and-shoot three-pointer.
He gets the ball, sets up his shot in a half-second, and sinks it in the blink of an eye.
That’s how he was on Monday night – and it continually caught Boston off guard.
