It’s gotta be the shoes.

Wearing his signature Anta KT 1 Playoff kicks, Golden State Warriors baller Klay Thompson made NBA playoff history Saturday with a record 11 3-pointers, pushing his team to victory against Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Warriors upended the Thunder on the team’s home turf in Oklahoma City, Okla., 108-101, forcing a Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals.

The Anta KT 1 sneakers feature a mixed-media knitted mesh upper and mid-foot, translucent yellow sole, and colorways in royal blue and golden yellow.

Thompson’s spectacular performance included banking 41 points, ranking him third among the top-scoring players on the road during an elimination game in the past 50 years — behind George Gervin, ranked second, with 42 points in 1979; and LeBron James, the record-holder, with 45 points in 2012.

Warriors owner Joe Lacob dropped to his knees and bowed before Thompson as he made his way to the locker room.

During a post-game interview, Thompson said: “I was just trying to stay aggressive.”

TNT commentator and retired NBA baller Charles Barkley was in awe during the broadcast, saying, “That was one of the best shooting performances that I have ever seen.”

The Game 7 match is set for Monday, airing at 9 p.m. EDT on TNT.
