Klay Thompson 2021-2022 Regular Season Props Average Points
- Over 19.5 +150
- Under 19.5 -200
Since the 2014-2015 NBA season, Thompson has not averaged less than 20 PPG. Thompson showed he still has his scoring ability during his stint in the G League. Thompson stood out in scrimmage matches while on the Santa Cruz Warriors.

In addition, the Warriors’ current offensive scheme runs through Stephen Curry who is averaging 26.8 PPG. Andrew Wiggins is the teams’ second-leading scorer averaging 19.1 PPG.
With the return of Klay, head coach Steve Kerr would likely pull shots from Wiggins to get Klay comfortable.
Klay will also have a lot of open looks with so many shooters on the Warriors and Steph demanding such attention. Klay could finish the season averaging 20 PPG again.
Assists and rebounds are likely a harder achievement as Thompson has never been big with either.
Klay Thompson 2021-2022 Regular Season Props Average Assists
- Over 2.5 +130
- Under 2.5 -170
For his career, Thompson averages just 2.3 APG. However, coming back from injury and reacclimating to the league may see Thompson be more passive early on, leading to more assists than he normally would have.

- Over 3.8 +140
- Under 3.8 -180
In the last four NBA seasons Thompson played, he averaged 3.8 rebounds in three of them and 3.7 rebounds in the fourth. However, with the injuries being on his legs, do not expect Thompson to be diving for loose balls and boxing out consistently enough to average that many rebounds again.
Thompson makes his season debut on Sunday starting at 8:30 p.m. EST. Fans can catch the game on NBC.
