And yes, I’m going to be on the lookout for some high quality images of the Splash Brothers reactions right when the shot fell.
There were tons of contributions up and down the roster, Jonathan Kuminga looked amazing as a starter, there was definitely some chemistry between Andrew Wiggins and Thompson, and Kevon Looney set a new career high for rebounds in a quarter (8 in the 1st).
