“We’re Capable Of A Run Like That” Klay Thompson, Warriors Inspired By 2023 Heat

Klay Thompson from the Golden State Warriors mentioned how they’re inspired by the 2022-23 Miami Heat, who made it to the NBA Finals starting from the No. 8 seed.

Miami faced tough challenges in the playoffs. They beat the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks in five games, led by Jimmy Butler’s outstanding performance, averaging 37.6 points per game.

Although the Heat struggled against the New York Knicks and the Boston Celtics, they managed to win those series. However, their playoff journey ended in the Finals against the Denver Nuggets.

However, Miami fell short in the NBA Finals, losing to the Denver Nuggets in five games.

“We take a lot of motivation from the Heat last year who had to play two play-in games and made it all the way to the Finals, I think we’re capable of a run like that. We obviously can’t look ahead, but whatever happens, we will be ready. We know that it can be done. There is no task too tall for us,” Thompson said.

Golden State’s Playoff Outlook

The Warriors, like the Heat last year, might have to go through the play-in tournament. The Western Conference is competitive, with several teams already having 50-plus wins.

While the Warriors have playoff experience, it’ll be tough for them to reach the Finals with so many strong teams in the West.
