The Warriors cannot sustain another injury, but they may have to deal with one.

Klay Thompson was on fire for Game 6 putting up 30 points midway through the third quarter.

But on a breakaway dunk, Danny Green went up to contest the shot and Thompson was thrown off balance on his way down and appeared to tweak his knee.

He stayed down for a minute and initially went to the locker room.

But, because he had been awarded two free throws he couldn't go just yet. Had he left he would not have been able to come back in the game at all.

NBA Finals 2019: Raptors' Kawhi Leonard named MVP after fantastic playoff run The Raptors star was named the 2019 NBA Finals MVP after his team’s 114-110 win over the Warriors in Game 6 at Oracle Arena.

Check out this quick video on Klay Thompson 's free throw technique. You will also see what he does for his free - throw routine. First he sets his feet (always set your feet before receiving the ball), then he takes a deep breath, two bounces and the ball goes up.

As Thompson turned and caught the ball, Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith slipped as he tried to get in front of Thompson , rolling into his legs. Thompson immediately fell to the floor, and looked to be in serious pain . The Warriors coaching staff whisked Klay off to the locker room to be evaluated.

Some staffers went and stopped him from leaving and brought him off the court to take the free throws.

He made both to make the score 85-80 in favor of Golden State and then he went to the locker room after DeMarcus Cousins fouled to give him a chance to get off the court.

Thompson has been the best player for the Warriors in Game 6.
