VIDEO: Klay Thompson Dunks On Davide Curletti In Wednesday's NIT Game

Klay Thompson has become a more physical player this season than any Washington State fans could've imagined. Instead of being content to spot-up and shoot threes, which he's been good at throughout his career, Thompson takes it to the rack, looks to draw contact and has no fear of finishing in traffic. On Wednesday, in an NIT game against Northwestern, Thompson did just that, dunking on Davide Curletti in the second half.

Check out the video of Thompson's vicious dunk, which was also No. 1 on SportsCenter's Top Plays.

Washington State went on to take home an overtime win over Northwestern, 69-67. But, again, it was Klay Thompson stealing the show with one of the better dunks I've seen from a Washington State player this year. With no regard for human life, Thompson went right at Curletti, and embarrassed him in the process.

Thompson finished with a double-double, 17 points and 10 rebounds, in what may have been his final game at Beasley Coliseum. But if the NIT game was his last in Pullman, what a way to go out.
