Warriors: Three days after critiquing Warriors fans for how loudly they cheered at Oracle Arena, Klay Thompson clarified his feelings about the team’s fanbase. He tweeted Tuesday: “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” Following the Warriors’ 115-111 loss to the Phoenix Suns on Sunday at Oracle Arena, Thompson lamented the team’s play mirrored the fans’ enthusiasm during the game.
“I know it’s not the playoffs. But it is our last go around at Oracle,” Thompson said. “Stand up or something when we make a play. We need that energy, especially this time of year. It’s hard to conjure up energy every single night because you’re looking forward to the playoffs in that run. So we expect our fans to kind of bring that from the jump.”—
