    I was listening to his father, former #1 overall pick Mychal Thompson, on the radio this morning. There are some interesting points about 60 point games in general and about Klay's outburst in particular:

    • only 23 players have scored 60 or more points in a game
    • of the total of 66 sixty point games, Wilt Chamberlain alone has nearly half of them, 32.
    • Kobe (6x), Jordan (5x) and Elgin Baylor (4x) are the only other guys with multiple 60 point games
    • Klay scored his 60 in just 29 minutes of floor time; he is the only person to score 60 in less than 30 minutes
    • Most amazing of all: despite scoring 60 points and taking 33 shots, Klay barely touched the ball. He had the ball in his hands for just 88 seconds total.

    Someone posted here in another thread that he dribbled a total of 11 times. That's fantastic.
