Klay Thompson is usually the happy-go-lucky Warriors star that everyone seems to love for his laid back personality.
I love DubNation. We have the greatest fan base in sports. We feed greatly off their energy in Oracle and I meant no disrespect. #timetogotowork #roadwarriors— klay thompson (@KlayThompson) March 13, 2019
Thompson didn't hold back three days after losing to the lowly Suns.
"I expect our crowd to be a little more into it," Thompson said after the game. "Like, I know it's not the playoffs, but it is our last go-around in Oracle. The least you can do is stand up when we make a good play."
Coming into Oracle used to be a nightmare for opposing teams. The Warriors used to be nearly unbeatable in Oakland, winning an NBA-record 54 straight regular season home games, a streak that was snapped on April 1, 2016.
But the tide has turned with a rough wave in the Bay. The Warriors have now lost three of their last five home games, and 10 total at Oracle this season.
"Let's put a better effort out on the floor, and give our fans something to cheer for," Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said the day after Thompson's initial comments.
Klay has been a fan favorite for years, and that certainly isn't changing. Before they head back home, however, they must endure a daunting road trip that begins Wednesday in Houston.
