What Had Happened Was: 12/6/16
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson wasn’t having a particularly memorable season heading into Monday night’s game against the Indiana Pacers, but then he dropped 60 points … in three quarters.
Most points w/ <30 mins played:
60 – Klay, tonight
43 – Larry Bird 3/18/86

The trial against ex-South Carolina police officer Michael Slager, who killed Walter Scott by shooting him in the back multiple times as he ran away, and then planted a Taser next to his body, was officially deemed a mistrial. The judge asked jurors to reconsider their decision this past Friday, after it was reported that one juror would not give a guilty verdict.

The prosecutor said they would retry the case, but even she blamed Scott partially for his own death.
