Death. Taxes. Klay Thompson starting games in the NBA Finals.

The latter has certainly become a regular occurrence in the last few years as the Warriors keep making Finals appearances and Klay never misses a start. It could, however, change this week after Thompson injured his hamstring in Game 2 on Sunday.

The injury occurred in the fourth quarter when Klay landed awkwardly on a shot attempt.

He would soon limp off the court and be ruled out for the rest of the game shortly after. It was about the only thing that could slow Klay down in Game 2. Despite sitting out most of the fourth quarter, Thompson still finished with a team-high 25 points on 10-of-17 shooting.

The injury could impact his status for Game 3, although Klay says he will be fine. He’s started 120 straight playoff games for Golden State.

Klay was limping around after the game, but not so much that he couldn’t still talk some trash to Drake.

Klay remains the best.
