KD knows Chase Center will be 'electric' for Klay's return

Warriors

If any NBA player can understand what Klay Thompson has gone through over the past two seasons in recovering from multiple lower body injuries, it's former Warriors teammate Kevin Durant.

The two-time NBA Finals MVP spoke about how "excited" he is to see Thompson return Sunday for the Warriors' home game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Durant's Brooklyn Nets beat the San Antonio Spurs 121-119 in overtime earlier Sunday. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich also had some kind words about Thompson during his pregame press conference.
