MANILA, Philippines – Klay Thompson did not finish Game 2 of the 2019 NBA Finals as he headed into the locker room midway through the final period due to tightness on his left hamstring.
Thompson put up 25 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists before suffering a minor injury as the Golden State Warriors hacked out a 109-104 win over the Toronto Raptors to tie the best-of-seven series at 1-1.

The sharpshooting guard suffered an awkward landing during a shot attempt and never returned to the court again, raising concerns for a Warriors team already without superstar Kevin Durant.
But Thompson reassured he will be back in action in Game 3 as Golden State host Toronto in Oakland on Wednesday, June 5 (Thursday, June 6, Philippine time).
