Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson showed just how tough he is during Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.
Klay suffered what looked to be a severe leg injury with roughly two minutes left in the third quarter of the final NBA game ever to be played to Oracle Arena, and it was tough to watch.
And yet, somehow, after limping to the tunnel, he elected to tough it out — returning to the court to shoot a pair of free throws. Spoiler alert: He drained both, like the Warrior (pun intended) he is.
He was later seen on crutches.
UPDATE: Klay suffered a torn ACL, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Thompson truly left it all on the court, and it was tough to watch, as Elimination Klay was in full effect. He dropped 30 points on an efficient 8-of-12 shooting, setting up for a very interesting summer, as he’s set to hit free agency.
