Following Saturday night’s 142-112 win over the Memphis Grizzlies in the Western Conference semifinals, the Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson shared his thoughts on his fellow teammate Jordan Poole grabbing the Grizzlies guard Ja Morant’s right knee late in the game:

“I’ve been through a tough knee injury, and I don’t think there’s any malicious intent from Jordan,” Thompson said, via ESPN. “I don’t even think he’s strong enough to affect somebody’s knee. But we’re not out there trying to hurt people or trying to club people in the back of the head on a fast break. We play the game the right way and I’m going to have his back.”
