Warriors’ Klay Thompson suffers torn ACL in loss to Toronto

Warriors’ Klay Thompson suffers torn ACL in loss to Toronto

Toronto forward Kawhi Leonard, branded the King of the North by Raptors fans after arriving at the franchise in a blockbuster trade with the San Antonio Spurs last July, was named the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player (MVP) after averaging 28.5 points during the series.

Drake is so close his dream of the Toronto Raptors taking home their first National Basketball Association championship. Curry talked of how tough it was to drop this series but understood the magnitude of the championship for Toronto and told Drizzy that his city deserved the win. Kawhi Leonard, finalizing his comeback season after missing most of the year last season, showing that he is well and truly back to being the player who belongs in conversations as one of the best players in the league. Even with those foul shots, the Raptors outscored the Warriors 34-25 after he was hurt.

Bay Area reported after Game 6 ended that Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri was accused of hitting a sheriff deputy in the face at the end of the game. How has this group of guys put themselves in position to do it?' And then, as I said, when Klay goes down and is out for the game, it's just sort of a, 'You gotta be kidding me.

"But it's just the way it's gone".

Both Durant and Thompson will be free agents in the offseason.

"But it's just - the way it's gone, I don't know if it's related to five straight seasons of playing 100-plus games and just all the wear and tear, but it's devastating". The veteran point guard scored the first 11 (!) points for Toronto to key the visiting team in an 11-2 start.

Toronto kept up their torrid pace after the half but the Warriors, a team known for their third-quarter dominance, refused to be buried and were starting to take control with Thompson leading the charge until he went down suddenly. Now the Warriors must decide what to do about next year's roster.
