The Golden State Warriors are having one of the most impressive regular seasons in NBA history, the very year after winning a championship. Their on-court dominance is majestic, but not quite on the same level as their off-court drive.

How do these guys get up for every game? For Warriors guard Klay Thompson, the answer is very simple. Here's what he told Yahoo!:

The Warriors face the San Antonio Spurs for the first time this season on Jan. 25, in a game the entire basketball universe can't wait to watch. These are two historically-dominant squads going head to head, two rosters that basically don't have any bad players on them.

How will they fare on Monday? The world can't wait to find out.

“It pushes us,” Thompson told Yahoo. “It definitely makes us better, knowing that they’re behind us. They’re playing great. It’s going to be fun when we see them next week. There are some good teams behind the Cavs in the East, but not a monster like San Antonio. But that’s going to make us better, to be honest with you.”
