What Warriors’ Klay Thompson Told Steve Kerr After Reported ACL Tear

What Warriors’ Klay Thompson Told Steve Kerr After Reported ACL Tear

Thompson suffered the injury in the third quarter on a breakaway. Since Green's foul wasn't ruled a flagrant, Thompson would need to attempt the free throws if he wanted to be eligible to return to the game. Doris Burke reported he's out for the game.

The Toronto Raptors beat the Golden State Warriors 114-110 in Game 6 to win the first National Basketball Association title in franchise history. The idea is what happened to Kevin Durant simply can't happen again.

After tearing his ACL, Thompson limped down the tunnel and into the locker room. Thompson came down awkwardly on his left leg and fell to the ground while holding his knee. But, he returned to make his two free throws. So instead, he came back out onto the floor to a big ovation and nailed both shots from the charity stripe.


Thompson proceeded to knock down both free throws, giving Golden State an 85-80 lead as Warriors fans chanted "MVP!"

It wasn't the ideal exit for Thompson at Oracle Arena's swan song - only made hurtful by the Toronto Raptors capturing their first National Basketball Association championship in thrilling fashion.

"Obviously he's a warrior", Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins said.
