Klay Thompson’s resurgence led the Golden State Warriors to a decisive victory against the Houston Rockets, positioning them closer to securing a playoff berth in a thrilling NBA showdown.

Thompson’s explosive display, amassing 29 points with a barrage of seven 3-pointers, propelled the Warriors to a triumphant 133-110 win, marking their sixth consecutive victory and completing a season sweep against the Rockets.

Crucially, this victory widened the gap between the Warriors (42-34) and the Rockets (38-38), placing Golden State four games ahead in the race for the final play-in tournament spot in the Western Conference. With the Warriors holding the tiebreaker, their magic number to clinch a playoff berth now stands at two.

Alongside Thompson’s heroics, Stephen Curry’s 29 points and six assists, coupled with rookie Trayce Jackson-Davis’ career-high 20 points, contributed to the Warriors’ offensive prowess. Despite the absence of Jonathan Kuminga due to knee tendinitis, the team showcased depth and resilience, with Andrew Wiggins chipping in 10 points.

Despite the victory, the Warriors grappled with turnovers, committing 21 which translated to 27 points for the Rockets. This recurring issue underscores the importance of refining their ball control, especially with the playoffs looming where every possession is critical.
