Trae Young Sends Warning to Celtics About ‘Game 6 Klay’

You’ve been warned.

Golden State Warriors splash brother Klay Thompson has built a reputation for his epic performances in big games. “Game 6 Klay” has become a name feared by his opponents in the NBA playoffs, as the NBA champion has torched opposing teams for the past decade of Game 6 matchups. Klay’s sixth Finals appearance in eight years, the Warriors star faces another opportunity for an iconic “Game 6 Klay” performance as his team looks to put a finish to the Celtics in a potential series clinching game. At least, that’s how Atlanta Hawks point guard Trae Young sees it.

See Trae’s tweet below:

Klay scored 21 points as the Golden State Warriors took a 3-2 lead in the series, Young took to Twitter, predicting another historic “Game 6 Klay” appearance.

The legend of “Game 6 Klay” started in 2016, when Thompson and the Warriors faced off against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference Finals.

Klay dropped 41 points in that game, by nailing 11 3-pointers, a then playoff record.

In his last Game 6 outing, Klay scored 30 points to help the Warriors beat the Grizzlies in the second round of this year’s playoffs.

We’ll see what Game 6 Klay brings tonight.
