Klay Thompson apologizes to Warriors fans

Now, it's easy to understand why Thompson was frustrated.

"I expect our crowd to be little more into it", Thompson said after the loss. "I know it's not the playoffs, but it is our last go-around at Oracle".

Thompson is now only the second player in National Basketball Association history to make at least 200 3-pointers in seven consecutive seasons. We need that energy, especially this time of the year.

The Warriors (45-21) lead Denver by one game atop the Western Conference as they bid for a fifth consecutive trip to the NBA Finals and seek their fourth crown in five seasons. "It's hard to conjure up energy every single night 'cause you're looking forward to the playoffs".

Thompson and the Warriors, who move to the now under-construction Chase Center in San Francisco next season, traveled to Houston on Wednesday for a Western Conference showdown against the rising Rockets. Golden State coach Steve Kerr partially backed him up on Monday. The Warriors used to be almost unbeatable in Oakland, winning an NBA-record 54 straight regular season home games, a streak that was snapped on April 1, 2016. Their level of success has become customary - to both players on the team and their fans - and that's taken a slight toll, he said.

Regardless, Kerr said he knows it's still his job to give their fans something to be excited about. "We have the greatest fan base in sports". When you play well, when you play with a great energy and a great pace and spirit, the fans are going to be naturally more excited. It's different for everybody. "We feed greatly off their energy in Oracle and I meant no disrespect".
