Will Ferrell warms up with Klay Thompson as Jackie Moon before Warriors vs. Clippers

Riding a season-high five-game losing streak, the Golden State Warriors pulled out all the stops to snap the slide on Tuesday against the Los Angeles Clippers at Chase Center.

As the Warriors hit the floor for pregame warm-ups, Klay Thompson was joined by a special guest. Dressed as his iconic character Jackie Moon from the movie “Semi-Pro,” actor Will Ferell joined Thompson and the Warriors for warm-ups before facing the Clippers.

Donning a full Flint Tropics uniform, Ferrell warmed up on his own, dished passes to Thompson and even attempted to guard the five-time All-Star shooting guard during the pregame period. Ferrell ended his pregame routine with a deep 3-pointer from the logo to mirror Steph Curry.
