    ESPN.com: Klay has torn ACL in left knee, Warriors confirm

    OAKLAND, Calif. -- Golden State Warriors swingman Klay Thompson suffered a torn ACL in his left knee in Thursday night's Game 6 of the NBA Finals, the team announced.

    Thompson was hurt with 2 minutes, 22 seconds left in the third quarter after he went up for a breakaway dunk and was fouled by Toronto Raptors guard Danny Green with Golden State leading 83-80. Thompson came down hard and immediately grabbed the knee while writhing on the floor in pain.

    The Warriors ruled Thompson out for the rest of the game, and he left the building on crutches, much the same way Kevin Durant did after rupturing an Achilles tendon in Game 5.

    Biochemistry major Kevin Silky said, "That just means that they were attached to the coach, they liked the way that he was running the program. Maybe they were entirely sure on where the program was going to once he was fired because they don't know who's coming in.

    Down two, three minutes to go, Jerami Grant came up with a steal and kicked a pass ahead to George. A critical layup was coming that would tie the game and wrestle momentum away back to the Thunder's side.

    But George did not do a layup. He timed up his steps and with Derrick Favors trailing, George elevated and cranked his arm back.
