On Monday night, the Golden State Warriors took down the Detroit Pistons 104-96.

Stephen Curry fell just short of a triple double, finishing with 19 points, nine assists and eight rebounds while his back court mate, Klay Thompson, also scored 19 points.

Thompson had an efficient night, going eight-of-12 from the field, but only played 29 minutes, so by looking at the box score, it was a relatively quiet game.

However, if you watched the game or caught any of the highlights, you’d see that Thompson’s game was anything but quiet.

In the first quarter, with Warriors trailing 11-8, the Warriors got out on a fast break. Thompson got the ball inside the three-point line and charged into the lane. Pistons’ forward Kyle Singler decided to try to make a play on Thompson, perhaps originally considering taking a charge as former Duke Blue Devils are known to do.

However, Singler couldn’t get there in time and instead went for the block.

Obviously, it didn’t work out for Singler.
