The Warriors have found their groove after a difficult start to the 2022-23 NBA season. Golden State is 11-10 and finally above .500 following their 137-114 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday at Target Center.

It's easier to show the team's personality when wins are stacking up. That's exactly what Klay Thompson did following the win over the Timberwolves by having some fun with reporters.

"We're so great in transition, and that flow really benefits us, I think, the most," Thompson said postgame. "So the not fouling and the ball movement were really the two components that propelled us to this victory, I think.

"Man, I just used some great words."

Thompson was one of the players who were heavily criticized during the Warriors' early season slump. TNT NBA analyst Charles Barkley went as far as to say that the 32-year-old isn't the same player anymore.
