Klay Thompson invades postgame interview, asks about ‘them dunks’

The Warriors, for once this year, showed a knack for finishing.

And as well as they played in the fourth quarter, they only got more fun immediately after the game.

Klay Thompson, serving as a guest sideline reporter for the day, took Kerith Burke’s place and jumped in to interview Omari Spellman after the Warriors’ 104-90 victory over the Bulls at Chase Center on Wednesday.

There were no “talk abouts.” There were no inquiries about pick-and-roll defense. No, Thompson, while conversational, wanted to know how a player who was a team-best plus-15 felt as he quietly dominated the game.

“My man O, how did you feel out there tonight? That two-way impact was something special,” Thompson asked Spellman, who finished with 13 points, 11 rebounds, three blocks and two steals.

Spellman, comically, resorted to cliches reserved for media — “It felt great just to compete with my guys and get after it and come up with a win.”

Thompson kept pressing.

“How’d it feel to throw down about five of them dunks? How many blocks, four?”

Thompson got Spellman to crack, the big forward smiling wide and laughing.

“Klay’s hilarious,” Spellman told boring, ordinary media types afterward. “… Just to do that with him, share that moment with him was pretty cool.”
