Bench Units Podcast – Lockdown Specials Vol. 14: Bench Reacts to “The Klay Game”

The world still hasn’t started turning again, and it looks like that will be the case until basketball starts again on July 31st.

To occupy our minds, we take a step back to one of the biggest “what-if” NBA games in recent memory: Game 6 of the 2016 Western Conference Finals, a.k.a. The Klay Game.

Having already upset the San Antonio Spurs in the previous round of the playoffs, the Oklahoma City Thunder continued to dismantle all predictions as they took a 3-1 series lead over the Golden State Warriors (proud owners of the NBA’s best-ever record at 73-9).

Game 6 sees Golden State fight back to tie the series at 3-3 behind an implausible performance from Klay Thompson, in a game from which the ripple effects may still be emanating throughout the NBA.

Listen in for an autopsy on what can only be described as the coming together of an individual masterpiece and a historic choke-job, courtesy of two hosts who have never accomplished either.

Thanks for listening, and keep an eye out for when real basketball is actually happening in the present day!
