Watch Steph, Clay throw paper airplanes together after Dubs win originally appeared nbc sports birea
It’s almost guaranteed to be a good time when both Steph Curry and Klay Thompson take the podium together, and Monday was no different.
After Warriors win 123-112 On Monday night at the Chase Center for the Phoenix Suns, the Splash Brothers surprised the media with a double appearance. And on the eve of Curry’s 35th birthday, Thompson gifted the reigning NBA Finals MVP with more just a game-high 38-points Display.
As Curry answered a question at the postgame press conference, Thompson was busy helping his teammates build their highly popular paper airplanes.
“Here you go, brother,” Thompson said as he placed the masterpiece in front of Curry.
“Oh, respect,” Curry replied with a big grin on his face as the room filled with laughter.
The fun moment between the two was certainly worthy after the Splash Bros combined for 61 points in the win. Thompson shot an incredible 60.8 percent from the field and 57.1 percent from 3-point range, while Curry shot 53.8 percent from the field and 66.7 percent from deep.
To celebrate the win, the two toss their paper airplanes across the room, with Thompson giving Curry some guidance on how the pros do it.
Curry made his first and Thompson followed.
“I could have won that one,” Curry said as the two stood up and left the room.

It wasn’t the NBA playoffs, but both of them in the same press conference room at the same time sure felt like it. A few more performances like Monday and the Splash Bros could blow up the Paper Sensations in the playoffs.
