Klay Thompson scores 60 points in 29 minutes
Golden State Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson became the first player in the NBA shot clock era to score 60 points in under 30 minutes of play.
Klay hit a career-high 54 points with 4:38 to go in the third quarter:

His skills were on full display Sunday, when he helped force two turnovers from Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor in a wild come-from-behind Raiders win:
