Klay Thompson hits out at Boston crowd: Real classy to curse in front of children

Klay Thompson called out the Boston crowd after Game 3 of the NBA Finals, sarcastically stating that cursing in front of the children was "real classy" from them. In Game 3 in Boston, the Celtics handed the Golden State Warriors a 116-100 loss to take a 2-1 lead in the series.
Throughout the night, the Celtics heckled Warriors' Draymond Green with the "F--- you Draymond" chants. Green's wife and kid were in attendance and Thompson wasn't happy with the Boston crowd behavior. "We've played in front of rude people before," Thompson said, per ESPN.
"Dropping F-bombs with children in the crowd. Real classy. Good job, Boston."
Thompson and company will have to respond in Game 3
The Warriors had a rough night in many ways as superstar guard Stephen Curry sustained an ankle injury.
As Curry and Al Horford fought for the ball with just over four minutes left in the game, the Celtics big man rolled on top of Curry's left leg and the Warriors guard was clearly in discomfort after the play. "[Horford is] a big body, obviously," Curry said.
"I haven't seen the play, so I don't know if it could have been avoided or not. I was in that situation with Marcus back in the Bay, and you just want to get your foot out of there. That's all I was trying to do at that point, knowing the position I was in.
Like I said, for what I feel like, it's not as bad. So hopefully, it responds well over the next two days." Curry, who finished with a game-high 31 points, couldn't understand why he had attempted only one free-throw in Game 3.
"I don't know why there's only one free throw," Curry said. "Felt like there's a couple possessions or plays that could have gone my way." For the first time since 2018, Curry attempted just one free-throw in a playoff game.
"It is hard to understand the flow of the game based on some of the calls that went my way where I have four and you're having to defend a certain way because you want to stay on the floor and not allow that to impact the game," Curry said.
"But you know, you've still got to find a way to be effective no matter how the game's being called, and it's a good lesson to learn for the next game." On Thursday, it was revealed Curry plans to play in Game 4 despite the injury.
