Programming note: Clippers-Warriors coverage starts Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. with Warriors Pregame Live on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.
Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson have been teammates since the 2011-12 season.
The Warriors selected Curry seventh overall in 2009, and Thompson 11th overall in 2011.
They are commonly referred to as the "Splash Brothers."
On Monday, Thompson joined Tom Tolbert and CSNBayArea.com Senior Insider Ray Ratto on KNBR 680 AM.
His relationship with Curry was discussed at length.
Ratto: "Do you see yourself as one "uber-player" with Curry, or do you still find times when you feel separated from him, even though you are on the floor at the same time?"
"I think opposing teams look at us like an entity now, as one," Thompson answered. "You can't just focus on one cuz if they focus on Steph I'm gonna get plenty of open looks. And if they focus on me, Steph is gonna do his thing.
"We're working together real nice right now, in a great flow. People look at the "Splash Brothers" as an entity now, but you can't just focus on one anymore, you gotta try and stop them both."
During the offseason, Golden State contemplated splitting up what is widely considered the best backcourt in the NBA.
They ultimately elected not to trade Thompson to Minnesota for power forward Kevin Love, and gave the younger "Splash Brother" a four-year, $70 million contract extension.
Through three games this season, Thompson is averaging a league-best 29.7 points per game, while shooting close to 54 percent from the field, over 45 percent from the 3-point line, and over 91 percent from the free throw line.
Curry, who last year made Second-Team All-NBA and became the first Warriors player to start in the All-Star Game since Latrel Sprewell in 1995, is averaging 25.3 points, 7.0 assists and a league-leading 3.7 steals per game this year.
How are they playing so well together?
"We are so familiar with each other's tendencies now -- where we like the ball, where our favorite spots are on the floor," Thompson explained. "We're still growing, of course...
"It was great going with him to Spain because we're so busy during the season -- Steph's got a young baby girl and I got Rocco, a dog damn near like a child -- we got to golf a lot, we got to go to the beach, we got to spend time off the court. We got to know each other on a friend basis a lot better."
