The series is currently tied 1-1 with Game 3 in Boston on Wednesday night.
Obviously, every game matters at this point – and that means that every single player matters as well.
That includes Thompson, who is regularly one of the biggest and brightest stars on the Warriors’ roster.

One of his best weapons is his three-point ability.
He’s been getting good use of it lately: during this playoffs, he’s been shooting 42% from three when he doesn’t dribble and 30% when he does.
In other words, Thompson remains a god of catch-and-shoot points.
It’s a thing of beauty to see in action – unless you’re rooting for the opposing team.
Thompson has long been a three-point threat.
You’ve seen his catch-and-shoot skills again and again throughout his NBA career.
The team will move quickly in transition, Thompson will find his spot beyond the arc, then he waits for the ball to be passed to him takes his shot, and lands an easy three points.
It all happens so fast and looks so easy.
This is just one of the many, many ways the Warriors are dangerous.
And the bad news for their competition is that Thompson isn’t the only one able to land these sorts of shots.
Everyone knows just how talented Stephen Curry is when making fast and furious threes.
If the Warriors want to win the Finals again, you can expect many more catch-and-shoot attempts from Thompson.
