KLAY THOMPSON HAD one of those nights when everything just dropped.

The less-heralded of Golden State’s Splash Brothers caught fire against the Indiana Pacers and scored a career high 60 points.

And he didn’t even get onto the court in the fourth quarter, racking up his incredible numbers in just 29 minutes as the Warriors won 142-106.

“That’s a feat that I’d put money on to probably never be touched ever again in the history of basketball,” the other Splash Brother, Steph Curry, said. “It’s unbelievable.”

Thompson was quick to pay tribute to the rest of his Warriors team-mates.

“(Shout out) to my squad for setting me up 2night!” he tweeted. “I don’t think I had to take more then (sic) 5 dribbles the whole game lol.”
