Here’s the painful-looking play that forced Klay Thompson to leave Game 2

Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson went into the locker room after suffering an injury early in the fourth quarter of Game 2 of the 2019 NBA Finals. The team said Thompson has “left hamstring tightness” and will not return.

With 10:40 left to play in the period, Toronto Raptors guard Danny Green collided with Thompson while the Warriors star was attempting a three-pointer.

The contact forced Thompson to come down awkwardly, and he nearly did the splits before limping off the court. He went straight to the Warriors locker room.
