Klay Thompson was huge for the U.S. during Friday's semifinals victory, scoring a team-high 22 points on 8-of-16 shooting with four 3-pointers, four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block.
The Scoop: Thompson has struggled at times during the Olympics, but he's also been the team's savior in games vs. France and Spain. The U.S. continues to rely heavily on isolation play, which makes Klay's off-ball movement even more crucial for their offensive success. His starting gig resulted in another reserve role for Paul George, who had six points, six boards, two steals and one assist in 16 minutes.
