Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
Stephen Curry: “We always talk about breaking this into three seasons. Getting off to a good start, and waiting for Klay and Wise to get back. In this period we’re in right now, we have to make those adjustments, and continue to try to get better…Then make a playoff push.” – 11:32 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
I know player comps with Desmond Bane have been a big thing this season, but the correct one is a crossover between Klay Thompson and Derrick Henry – 10:28 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Warriors get blown out in Milwaukee. Fourth straight road loss with a difficult back-to-back in Chicago tomorrow night without Draymond/Klay/maybe more. First real stretch of adversity for the still 30-11 Warriors. Offense has gone quiet, Curry in a slump. – 9:46 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Perhaps the only positive tonight: With the outcome rid of doubt, Kerr got Klay 10 consecutive minutes in the third quarter. Still, been a rough night for him. – 9:31 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
The broadcast just showed Klay Thompson walking to the locker room. He, Steph Curry and Andrew Wiggins were subbed out at the last #Warriors timeout. – 9:13 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Rough shooting night for Klay Thompson in his third game back: 3-of-11 FG, 11 points. Blowout L did free Steve Kerr to give Klay a 10-minute run to open the third quarter, double his longest court time consecutively since return. Notable as he ramps it up. – 9:11 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Warriors opening the second half with a Curry, Klay, Poole, Wiggins, Looney lineup. If anything, at least gives the Curry/Klay/Poole lineup combo some needed reps together. – 8:49 PM
Brad Botkin @bradbotkincbs
Curry just does not control games the way he used to, he is not a cheat code answer, and Klay’s return isn’t going to save the Warriors under these new Curry circumstances. We need to fire that “Warriors need a trade” narrative all the way back up – 8:25 PM
Marc J. Spears @MarcJSpears
Should the Warriors sit Klay Thompson the rest of this potential Milwaukee blowout and play him in Chicago? He has played five minutes so far. – 8:14 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Klay Thompson has started 0-for-3 and Steph Curry has yet to take a shot for Golden State.
#Bucks up 16-4 in the early going. – 7:43 PM
Steve Aschburner @AschNBA
Five of the 10 guys on the floor at tip-off of Golden State vs. Milwaukee had dads who played in the league: Steph (Dell) Curry, Klay (Mychal) Thompson, Andrew (Mitchell) Wiggins, Gary Payton II and Wesley (Wes) Matthews. Wonder if there’s ever been more… – 7:37 PM
Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
The Warriors are starting Stephen Curry, Gary Payton II, Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins, and Kevon Looney against the Milwaukee Bucks. – 6:12 PM
Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
Gary Payton II gets the starting nod in Draymond’s place against the Bucks. Klay Thompson is active tonight, meaning he’ll rest tomorrow v. Chicago. – 6:06 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Warriors starters tonight in
Milwaukee
Steph Curry
Klay Thompson
Andrew Wiggins
Gary Payton II
Kevon Looney – 6:05 PM
Jamal Collier @JamalCollier
Klay Thompson will play tonight in Milwaukee, Steve Kerr says. He’ll sit out tomorrow’s game against the Bulls on the second night of a back-to-back – 6:05 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
#Warriors head coach Steve Kerr says Klay Thompson is feeling good, so he will play tonight vs. the #Bucks. He will not play tomorrow in Chicago. – 6:04 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Klay Thompson will play tonight in Milwaukee and rest tomorrow in Chicago, as expected. “He wants to play tonight,” Kerr said. – 6:02 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Klay Thompson will play tonight and sit tomorrow in Chicago. – 6:02 PM

Second returns for fan All-Star voting. Steph Curry still leads all guards (and players) in the West, Klay is in fourth. Wiggins is third in front-court voting, Draymond is sixth. pic.twitter.com/0nnyXahnNx1:12 PM

Ryan McDonough @McDNBA
I’m glad the fan vote doesn’t solely decide the All Star starters anymore
In the West, AD and Melo are ahead of Gobert and Ayton while Klay is ahead of Booker, Paul and Mitchell
In the East, Kyrie and D Rose lead VanVleet, Garland and Jaylen

I wrote on the bond between Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, and what it means to have the Splash Brothers back together: sfchronicle.com/sports/warrior…10:42 AM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
Billy Donovan’s other point he’s made – Bulls have beaten a lot of teams missing key pieces … lots of fugazi wins. Another one could happen Friday if Warriors sit Klay and DGreen. – 12:18 AM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
