Klay Thompson’s return to the Golden State Warriors is very imminent, but the All-Star shooting guard has loved what he’s seen from his teammates so far this season.

The Warriors currently sit atop the Western Conference and have the NBA’s best record at 16-2. A few days ago, Thompson was asked if he thinks the team has enough to make a deep playoff run like some of the previous Warriors teams he’s played with, and Thompson responded with the affirmative.

“Oh, yeah. We’re 15-2. That’s a great indicator. Our defense is in the top three in the league with our offense. And I’m not even there yet,” he said. “Think about it. Really think about it. “

Golden State is currently ranked first in the league’s defensive standings and has the highest points differential per game this season at 13.5.

Thompson hasn’t played a competitive NBA game since Game 6 of the NBA Finals when he tore his left ACL. He did not play at all during the 2019-20 season interrupted by COVID-19, but then ruptured his Achilles tendon in November 2020. On Tuesday, he attended his first full training for the Warriors since then.

“It’s so exciting,” said Thompson. “Just to run on the court and play basketball is really a blessing and it makes the job so easy. The boring stuff is behind me, and now it’s just coming back in form of play – I have to stay patient because I may be a person too eager to go out and play, but I’m just so incredibly grateful to be there. “

The Warriors have a one-game lead over the scorching Suns in the Western Conference and will play five of their next 10 road games. They have a tough game series, hosting the Blazers after Thanksgiving, the Clippers, and then a home / away series against the Phoenix.
