On Thursday night, the Golden State Warriors hosted the Toronto Raptors in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.
In what will be the final game played in front of the Oracle Arena, the Warriors started off with a horrendous display of offense by turning the ball over 10 times in the first half.
Despite the sluggish start, Golden State trailed by just three points at the half.
Late in the third quarter, Klay Thompson suffered what appeared to be a potentially serious knee injury when he went for a layup, but was fouled hard by Danny Green.
Thompson immediately fell to the floor and looked to be in immense pain.
He limped off the floor, but came back when it was explained to him that he needed to come back and shoot free throws or leave the game completely.
Here’s the play.

Something just doesn’t look right with Thompson’s knee when he hits the ground.
Regardless of the injury, Thompson returned to the game to hit one-of-two free throws.
After a brief stint on defense, the Warriors training staff took Thompson back to the locker room for a further evaluation.
Stay tuned for the latest on Thompson’s injury and Game 6 of the Finals.
