Later, on the postgame podium, Draymond would appraise Klay as “one of the toughest guys if not the toughest guy I’ve ever played with.” Draymond also plays with David West. Perhaps that’s explained by Klay’s zen as much as his grit. He just doesn’t care, except for the things he really cares about. He loves basketball and will tune out everything, even immense pain, in order to play it and play it better. After the game, Klay said, “I didn’t realize how much you use your ankle until you hurt it.” That part of life was off his radar, until it came into focus. That’s Klay’s secret. He optimizes what he wants, and ignores what he doesn’t. The result is a game and life that, as Zaza might say, is true.

Marc J. Spears: Warriors guard Klay Thompson (ankle) says he is optimistic he will play in Game 2, “I’m going to do what I possibly can to play.” He added that the under cut accidental slip from Cavs guard JR Smith on the play in which he hurt his ankle wasn’t intentional but it “pissed me off.”
