Klay expected to miss 9-10 months after tearing ACL

Klay expected to miss 9-10 months after tearing ACL

Kuzma went as far as to say the injury to Thompson is "karma" because of past injury history going in Golden State's favor.

Two hours later, he would change his tune once he heard the news about Klay's ACL. Thompson came down awkwardly on his left leg and fell to the ground while holding his knee.

Asked what went through his head when Thompson went down, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said, "It's amazement that we're sitting in this position with - during the game, we have a chance to win the game and force a Game 7, go back to Toronto - you just think, 'How?"

Thompson's injury came on the heels of a nightmare Game 5 for the Warriors, who won the game but lost Kevin Durant for the remainder of the series and beyond with a torn Achilles tendon. Thompson scored an unreal 28 points on 12 shots, keeping Oracle Arena on its feet and throwing haymaker after haymaker to respond to anything the Toronto Raptors threw at the defending champs. But it wasn't enough - the Raptors won 114-110 to finish off a 4-2 series victory and capture their first National Basketball Association championship. So instead, he came back out onto the floor to a very big ovation and nailed both shots from the charity stripe.

Klay would hit both free throws and wanted to remain in the game.

It was clear Thompson was eager to get back out on the court to help out his team, and ESPN's Doris Burke was reporting that he didn't feel a pop in his knee.

Klay Thompson walks with the help of crutches and his left knee wrapped up after leaving Game 6 due to injury.

Thursday night marked the end of a dynasty for the Warriors.
