After two-and-a-half years, Klay Thompson was back on an NBA court Sunday night.

Thompson scored 17 points in 20 minutes, helping the Warriors knock off the Cavaliers. Thompson knocked down a few 3s, drove the lane, and even had a poster dunk as he looked good for a guy who just missed more than two years of basketball (due to a torn ACL then Achilles).

It wasn’t just fans who were pumped, other NBA players were celebrating #KlayDay long before tip-off and during the game took to social media to react to Thompson and his return.

Klay’s poster dunk during the game woke up a few players, too.
