After waiting for over 900 days due to injury, Klay Thompson made a successful return to the court on Sunday and scored 17 points to help the Golden State Warriors defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 96-82.

During a post-game interview, Thompson talked about what it felt like to be back on the court.

“It was special. I’ll never forget this night,” he said.

Thompson suffered an ACL tear in the 2019 NBA Finals, and was set to return last year. However, he then suffered an Achilles tear and missed the entire 2020 season.

In his first game back, Thompson was 7-of-18 shooting and made three 3-pointers on eight attempts. Overall, it was a better performance than most people expected in his first game back.

The NBA is happy to have Thompson back on the court. He will bring a lot of energy and excitement to the league’s most improved team, which was by Warriors’ coach, Steve Kerr.

“It’s pretty special,” Kerr said in an interview with ClutchPoint. “I guess whatever happens regardless of the outcome, this will be a game I’ll remember my whole life just, because of what Klay has done for our franchise, what he’s done for me, what he’s done for his teammates, how much they all mean to each other.”
