Klay Thompson leaves Oracle Arena on crutches during Game 6 of the NBA Finals

Klay Thompson left Oracle Arena on crutches, after sustaining a left knee injury in the third quarter of the Warriors' Game 6 loss in the NBA Finals.

In what proved to a remarkable scene, Thompson injured his leg and needed help from a pair of teammates to limp down the tunnel. Then, just a couple of minutes later, Thompson returned to the floor to shoot free throws. He had originally been injured when Danny Green fouled him during a layup attempt.

Thompson knocked down both free throws before the Warriors committed a foul to get Thompson off the floor and back to the locker room. Here's the sequence in which Thompson got hurt.
