This is one of the most anticipated moments of the 2021/2022 NBA season. Clay Thompson, who has suffered two serious injuries in recent years, is back in the Golden State Warriors squad.

The 31-year-old appeared against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday and even appeared in the starting lineup. Coach Steve Kerr gave him 20 minutes, during which time Thompson scored 17 points, including three rebounds, two assists and a thief.

“I’m thankful I was able to do what I wanted to do again,” Clay Thompson told Dennis Scott on NBA TV. The Star Warriors scored 7 of 18 outfield attempts, including 3 for 8.

– 18 scenes in 20 minutes? This is so normal for me, Thompson laughed. “It’s a great feeling to be back in the game and get that match rhythm back.” The fans welcomed me warmly and I really appreciate it – he stressed. – Week by week will be better.

The Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 96:82 on Sunday, their 30th victory in the 2021/2022 campaign. Center back Kevon Looney added 28 “points” off 18 balls in the toss for the San Francisco team.

At the beginning of the meeting Clay Thompson showed his talented dummies – we were not surprised about this because we had already seen it during training – Steve Kerr told the press conference. “It’s amazing that he was finally with us,” Carrie added.

“This is just the beginning,” Thompson insisted as he walked into the dressing room after the game. Coach Kerr described the return of the thrower and summed up Sunday’s meeting as a “beautiful evening.”

Thompson tore his cruciate ligament in the 2019 NBA Final. He was rehabilitated for more than 12 months, but instead of returning to the game for the 2020/2021 season, he suffered another serious injury. Star Warriors tore his Achilles tendon and missed two seasons in a row. He was suspended for a total of 941 days.

The Americans attacked the NBA courts in 2011. Since the beginning of his career, he has been associated with the Golden State Warriors, for which he has played in a total of 615 tournaments. Before the start of the 19/20 games, the player signed a maximum five-year contract with the Warriors, which guarantees him $ 189.9 million.
