SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- Warriors Shooting Guard Klay Thompson spoke to the media after his long awaited return vs the Cavs on Sunday. The Warriors defeated the Cavs 96-82 while Klay scored 17 PTS, on 7-18 FG & 3-8 3P with 3 REBs in just 20 minutes. Thompson returned after 31-month absence as last season Thompson tore his right Achilles tendon in November 2020. It's been about 31 months or 941 days, since he's played in a real game for Golden State.

QUOTES from Thompson BELOW:

Klay Thompson on his second-quarter dunk: "It's funny because I didn't dunk those whole two months of scrimmaging. But when the lights are the brightest, I just felt bouncy."

On his first game in 941 days: "Gosh, it was fun. It was worth every single day being on that squat rack or on that shuffle board. ... It's been a long road, but I'm also just proud of myself of persevering."

Klay while looking down at the stat sheet: "I'm just so happy right now. ... I'm just so happy I can just look at the stat sheet and see my name there." ... "I've tried to visualize this moment for years, really. ... I'm really thankful for that ovation and the love they showered me with tonight. I'll never forget that."

On what it meant that Draymond Green, who got injured pregame, still started: "So much. I mean, I can't wait to play with Dray again. He makes my life so much easier. ... I love Draymond's competitiveness, and it just felt good to have a nearly full squad again."

"I'm just excited to go home, watch the film and critique myself. It's been a long time coming."
