Klay hilariously whines on Instagram about Steph's ASG taunting

Barring exclusive access to a Warriors practice scrimmage, the only chance to watch Steph Curry and Klay Thompson in a competitive setting against one another occurred Sunday night at the annual NBA All-Star Game. The two were clearly aware of this fact, and at one fun moment during last night’s exhibition, they made sure the fans were left with a good bit of entertainment.

In a tight game in the fourth quarter, Steph caught the ball on the wing and immediately rose up to shoot. Klay was late rotating over, and was a little wild as he contested Steph’s three-point attempt. As the ball went up, Klay knocked Steph to the floor, and the two watched as Steph’s shot hit nothing but net. Steph hit the ensuing free throw to complete the 4-point play.

After the shot went in, Steph playfully taunted Klay, which Klay later “took issue with” on Instagram.

Speaking with media after the game, All-Star Game MVP Kevin Durant noted the moment.

“It was good to see Steph knock down that shot over Klay,” Durant said. “Because Klay’s always talking trash to him.”

“The only thing that hurt was when Steph hit that 4-pointer on me, that hurt,” Klay said. “That’s what the opposition feels like, that didn’t feel good. That hurt.”

Klay got the last laugh, however: his 20 points helped elevate Team LeBron over Team Giannis, 178 – 164.
