Klay Thompson heads to locker room after J.R. Smith slides into his knee

OAKLAND — This is ugly.

Cleveland’s J.R. Smith was closing out on Klay Thompson midway through the first quarter in Game 1, slips on a wet spot on the floor, and took out Thompson’s knee in an ugly way.

Thompson tried to walk it off, but couldn’t then limped back to the dressing room.

That’s not going to keep Thompson out of the game, however.

He was back out in the second quarter and seemed to be moving fairly well.
