Klay Thompson injured in Game 3, heads straight to locker room

By Jesse Reed

Near the end of the first quarter of Game 3 in the 2016 NBA Finals, Klay Thompson took a knee to his upper leg and hit the deck hard.

Timofey Mozgov was setting a screen for Kyrie Irving when Thompson ran into him.


It was a clean play, but Thompson was clearly shaken up by the hit. He limped off the court and headed straight to the locker room, laboring badly in the tunnel on the way.

Thankfully, he is expected to return.

The Warriors finished the first quarter without him, down by 17 points, 33-16.
