Mo Speights claims he almost beat Klay Thompson in shooting contest

Marreese Speights immediately became a fan favorite during his tenure with the 2013-16 Warriors, bringing a high-scoring punch from the bank and inspiring energy at Oracle Arena in a way few have in team history.

Speights was known as a stretch four in the NBA, with a consistent midrange and 3-point shot that forced the defense to expand.

But while Speights isn’t capable enough to be a Splash Brother from the outside, the veteran nearly knocked one down in a 3-point shootout.

Klay once, “said Speights Warriors Outsiders. “Those guys are way above everyone else.” data-reactid = “16”> “I almost came close to ever beating Klay,” Speights said Warriors Outsiders. “Those guys are way above everyone else.

“But after that, after those two guys, it’s the free game after that.”

Speights shot a solid 0.333 percent of the three in his time with Golden State, but he always seemed to connect when it mattered the most.

Maybe when life gets back to normal, we can get a rematch between these two beloved former teammates.
