On Thursday night, the Golden State Warriors lost their final game in front of their home fans at Oracle Arena.

The Warriors' run of NBA championships came to a heartbreaking end after the team lost two superstars in the span of a few days.

First, Kevin Durant suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon in his attempted comeback from a calf strain. Not long after, Klay Thompson suffered a torn ACL after a hard foul from Danny Green forced him to land awkwardly.

After the game, Thompson had a few questions for the Warriors' brass.

His first question was whether or not he'd be able to play a potential Game 7:

"I was back there when they told him he was out the rest of Thursday," public relations VP Raymond Ridder said. "And all [Klay Thompson] said was, 'Do you think I can play Sunday [in Game 7]?'"

Thompson is a warrior, and was ready to be back on the floor with his teammates, despite suffering a torn ACL.

After undergoing an MRI on his knee, Thompson had one thing on his mind: the game.

"What happened?" Thompson asked, per ESPN's Ramona Shelburne. "Did we win?"

After he learned of the Warriors' loss, he had just one more question. "Do you think this could affect my free agency?" he asked.

The Warriors might never be the same after their magical five-year run.
