Thompson suffered the injury in the third quarter on a breakaway. Doris Burke reported he's out for the game.

Oracle Arena held its collective breath during Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night when Warriors star Klay Thompson injured his left knee. The idea is what happened to Kevin Durant simply can't happen again.

He stayed down for a minute and initially went to the locker room.

Klay Thompson scores 30 points before having to leave the game with a left knee injury. This makes for a vastly uncertain future for Thompson, who's eligible to become a free agent this summer.

Toronto went on to close out the Warriors with a 114-110 victory to earn its first championship in franchise history.


"For him to get back out there, as insane as it sounds, I think he played for 11 minutes, I think those 11 minutes were enough to give us the spark that we needed", Draymond Green said.

So he emerged from the tunnel, took his free throws and made both.

Klay Thompson has developed a reputation as one of the NBA's most easy-going superstars.

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