Klay trolls Steph with new nickname after Game 4 TO blunder

Share

The Warriors' Game 4 win over the Sacramento Kings on Sunday ended with more excitement than anticipated thanks to a fourth-quarter timeout blunder by Steph Curry.

And based on Klay Thompson's quip after the game, he might not let his fellow Splash Bro forget it any time soon.

"Steph 'C-Webb' Curry," Thompson announced as he headed to the locker room after Golden State's 126-125 victory at Chase Center.

Chris Webber immediately came to mind as Curry called a nonexistent Warriors timeout with just over 40 seconds left in the pivotal playoff game. Curry's gaffe came with Golden State leading by just five points and the technical foul the Warriors star received nearly allowed the Kings to storm back and take a 3-1 series lead.

Webber infamously did the same during the 1993 NCAA Division I men's basketball championship, allowing North Carolina to secure the win over Michigan -- hence Thompson's "C-Webb" joke.

Instead of a loss Sunday, however, the Warriors still managed to even the opening-round NBA playoff series at two games apiece, and coach Steve Kerr took full responsibility for the flub after the win.

Still, Curry told reporters after the game he views the mistake as a "learning lesson," even though Kerr took the fall.

But learning lesson or not, the four-time NBA champion might not ever hear the end of it from Thompson, his fellow Splash Bro.
