Warriors' Klay Thompson leaves Game 6 after scary fall

NBA world reacts to news that Klay Thompson tore his ACL in Game 6 loss

In Game 5, Kevin Durant tore his right Achilles, and in Game 6, Klay Thompson went down in the third quarter on a dunk attempt with what looked to be a serious knee injury.

Klay Thompson scores 30 points before having to leave the game with a left knee injury.

Some staffers went and stopped him from leaving and brought him back to the court to take the free throws. After DeMarcus Cousins intentionally fouled Pascal Siakam on the ensuing inbound, Thompson begrudgingly checked out of the game and returned to the locker room. He was later seen with crutches.

Thompson's re-emergence on the floor received a raucous standing ovation from the crowd inside sold-out Oracle Arena.


But before he went out in crutches, Thompson actually meant to keep on playing. However, Thompson told coach Steve Kerr that after the injury he only needed two minutes before he could get back on the court.

Nobody is going to question Klay Thompson's toughness.

Thompson shooting the free throws seems unnecessary in hindsight, but in the moment, the five-time All-Star had plans to finish out the game.
