Warriors’ Klay Thompson suffers torn ACL in Game 6

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr comments after a loss to the Toronto Raptors in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.

OAKLAND, Calif. — The Golden State Warriors say guard Klay Thompson sustained a torn left ACL during Game 6 of the NBA Finals.

Thompson was hurt late in the third quarter of their 114-110 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Thursday night, the Warriors’ second devastating injury in the final two games of the series. Kevin Durant had been lost to a ruptured right Achilles tendon early in Game 5.

Thompson was fouled by Danny Green on a drive to the basket with 2:22 remaining in the third quarter. He was helped to the locker room area, then came back out to shoot the free throws. He checked out three seconds later, finishing with 30 points, and left the arena on crutches.

The All-Star shooting guard had missed Golden State’s loss in Game 3 with a sore left hamstring.
