>> in points in 20 minutes, he had the first points of the night. he wasted no time. it was funny. steve kerr actually said that first he drew up, wasn't designed to go to clay, but clay called it on the wing in. you look around and say, you know what, i'm taking this to the rim. he went to the rim and scored and, you know, if you could just feel like it was a weight lifted off his shoulder because he was playing so freely. after that, it looked like he had missed a beat in this guy had played in 941 days. not only that just too traumatic injuries, injuries that can really end a player's career. he went through to love them to get through one, get all the way back to the summit right before you're going to return and then have another one is devastating and mentally, he said that was the most tough thing. you know, he said physically, i felt like my body was back. but mentally, i was always ask myself, will i be able to get back to the level where i'm used to? and tonight he answered a lot of those questions. we saw him do it on all 3 levels. he got
some dunks, some 3 pointer, some mid-range game. he played great defense and there wasn't really a dry eye in the stands as he got announced in that starting lineup is really going to be one of these events that i remember covering for my entire career because this bay area has such a unique relationship with klay thompson. they've won 3 championships together. they've lost championships together. they've seen him at his lowest point when he tore his acl at oracle ak in oakland in 2019, they cheered him on and they've been with him every step of the way. and after the game, he was so thankful to the fans. so thankful to dub nation. but guess what? now? they got past this hurdle, so to speak and they can recalibrate and he's going to be a mainstay in the lineup. this is a team justine, jonathan, their 39 on the season. they have a great team. they could win an nba
championship. so we're witnessing a special season and they have their splash brother back. all is well. >> all right, jason dumas, sliwa chaser, jason, we'll check back with you on sports night live coming up in less than 30 minutes right here on kron 4. thanks. >> let's talk about our forecast now as we take a live look outside across the golden gate bridge. clear and cold out there tonight. let's get you ready for the start of your monday and the rest of the week. here's kron 4 meteorologist mabrisa rodriguez. yeah. even tracking similar conditions across the bay in the berkeley area. we're tracking dense, low clouds and fog. not going to be an issue tonight. instead, it's going to replaced by high cloud cover because of this storm out in the pacific. >> unfortunately, it's going to remain over the waters, not making its way on land into the bay area. could see some light scattered showers overnight just over santa rosa. but really, we're going to see a lot of sunshine after that storm cloud cover clears up for your monday morning.

went wild. from the moment. clay stepped onto the court for his pre-game warmups and course during that emotional intro, what he actually looked the part in live game action after so much time away. right off the bat boy turns the corner and gets the land his first basket. first points of the game showing that his legacy looking mary healthy, everyone is happy play is officially back and look in. he's good now. hey, don't forget about this guy, steph curry. he had 4 threes in the first. that's a good sign because he's been in a little bit of a mini slump. flash grow late second clay turned that corner again and this time it throws one down on not one but 2 dream on is happy. players got this our own. stef just doesn't know what to do. but hey, how about the threes? you're probably wondering, well, here you go from downtown warriors up 5 at the break. he's still got it. 3rd quarter. sure. this one from
30 feet. it's down 16 to 48 dubs. clay is absolutely rightfully so. we go to the 4th quarter. he steps back behind the screen. another 3 slashes down. thompson finished with 17 points in just 20 minutes. steph had 28. what an epic night at chase center team. by the way, the warriors to win 96 to 82 alston afterthought. but they play next at the memphis grizzlies. coming up on tuesday night, kron 4 sports director jason dumas getting taken an event that people paid up to 14 grand for you got in for the low price of a media credential. jason, was it as well doubt there's a looked. >> raise the i didn't have the 14 k. so luckily i had that media credential. but it was as wild in person, as i'm sure seen on the television when klay first came out for his
pre-game routine. the crowd absolutely or update he was out here for about 10 minutes going through his routine. then when the warriors came out together for the layup lines, another rousing ovation. and then when he was announced in the starting lineup, that's when this building literally started to shake. i had goosebumps is going to be one of these events that our member for the rest of my life. as you know, we cover a lot of events in this is going to be a memory forever. it's been so long over 2 and a half years of 2 excruciating injuries. a lot of trauma first that torn acl back on june 13th 2019 and then he ruptured his achilles during a pickup basketball game a little over a year ago before he was set to come back and he told us that it was as tough mentally as it was physically just the emotional roller coaster is getting so close to coming back and then
getting hurt again and going back to the bottom of the hill is jus days on days and on that training table, doing squats to impala metrics doing conditioning days. it was a lot to indoor, but clay, he is tough minded and as you saw in the game today, he played well, it looks like he didn't even skip a beat. 17 points in 20 minutes. he took that first play. that wasn't even drawn up for him. and he took it right to the cup. he scored the first points of the game. he had a couple of dunks as kate you showed in that highlight a couple of 3 pointers, 3 to be exact and it was really just a great day for him and like you said, it almost felt like an afterthought. the warriors got the wind, too. so klay thompson, he's very thankful for this moment because of everything he went through to get here. >> she was fun and it was worth every single day of being away. and in a squat rack on the shuttle shuttle boarded. all the conditioning
days, it was worth every single moment and i'm so grateful to just. just compete again. it's a. it's been a long road, also proud of myself for persevering and it you know, a very special on their forget it was. quillen to win a championship. but man, it was pretty freaking close, though, especially as said of for the love that. >> and though he's been waiting for this that moment here, the crowd. >> you know that he's gone through. >> so many eyes and lows over the last 2 and a half years. that was the moment he could celebrate. you know, that journey and just go go. who knew it would be electric tonight try to visualize this moment for. >> years, really. and gosh, is worth every second and just
>> i'm just excited. kind of get out the way now. i can get back in the rhythm of things because the last 2 years was different with rehab. and now like computer have to reprogram. i approached everything in. that's a blessing. so i'm very thankful for that ovation and the love they showed me with tonight and i'll never forget that. >> jason steve kerr said before the game that klay thompson will probably play for about 20 minutes. he played for exactly 20 minutes. so what is the plan to utilize clay moving forward? well, kate, they get right on the road after this. have a four-game road trip is starts in memphis. then they go to milwaukee, chicago and ends in minnesota. but >> that milwaukee to chicago game is on the 13th and the 14th. so >> the chicago game is a back-to-back play will play in that game about playing back-to-back. now he won't play over. 25 minute. he's going to be on a minute count just like pictures on the
pitching count. they will slowly ramping back up. but they are here for a marathon, not a sprint. this is a team that is 39 tied for the best record in the nba. they have huge dreams and they want to win an nba championship and they know you don't win nba championships in january, clay has won 3 of them himself. he knows it is a marathon, not a sprint. they are going to slow play him back. but once we get to may, they're going to be firing on all cylinders and they won't be able to get him out of his game. and one more quick note, kate, obviously, you know this after the game, all the players, they get a box score. they get to see how they did after the game. clay was at the podium and he looked down at the box score and he said just looking at one of these things and seeing my name on it. >> brings chills to me. he's good, say i was a -2 on the day. i have to get better. that's not good. so he's still a tough critic as well. but and it just was a great night here at chase center and to see clay get back on the court. it's going to have to
get that box score frame. maybe you should to. jason. okay. thank you so much for your report. >> it isn't just people connected to the warriors who have been eagerly awaiting clay's return to the nba hardwood. >> we spoke to a few players from around the league about thompson's come back and some of their best memories of playing against him. >> the memory that i that's burned. as the game 6. when i was in our case, showed up those bells, tough. whenever you a player. especially one, that's a that extended period of time. just seeing them come back from injury i that's just amazing. in itself may be great for the >> no player always been a big fan just, you know how he carries himself. how competitive he is. always fun playing against a good, you know, just. that brothers, you know, to believe me that it was said that he missed 2 years. i couldn't you know
what i would howard respond to have to, you know, sit and watch to that at this point. my career like this point. the point is to to get but it would be great to see him back out of a series. opened his ball. and he came out, you know, i think game 6, before like in 6 foot. >> unfortunately, it. both went up to a to block the ball. came down off of season. the top 75 new snow. but i think come back at the top. but i would play against places even in college. you got 45 or so. >> that was kind of back of my mind when you play that great for the as gray, one best to ever do it as the dish and obviously been a staple in the league past 2 years. whatever stuff. i mean, we haven't missed a guy of his caliber. kind of bad investments in a game putting clothes.
>s when i was in chicago used to call goes and you would go away. 40 something of a police something or did something very, very clear tops last operating as plays. didn't go great. when i look at the whole putting myself forward and get back on the court, he's just one of those guys that really enjoy watching play the game because he does it the right glad this is the 3rd match up with them are playing right now. so we've got to do it too much this year. but a back. welcome back time. the competitor one of the best shooters in this league. >> and, you know, it's just great to be able to be amazing. the play again some and see how i you you go against, you know, one of the out there. and i personally think these types whatever the nba 75 is. personally think that he's on there for sure
100%. >> a lot of respect on that man's name. so glad to have him back. alright, much more to come on sports night live. we haven't even gotten to the nfl yet. buckle up. some wild action forty-niners looking to punch their ticket to the postseason. they delivered. >> on the drama, the raiders also needing a win to keep their playoff dreams alive. this time what happened in vegas doesn't stay in vegas. we've got the scoop coming up.
>> welcome back to sports night live. kate rooney here with you. the final week of the nfl regular season. and that meant one last chance today for the forty-niners to earn a postseason berth. they had to beat the rams in la to do it. and boy, did the reading goal. take us on a wild ride. jimmy garoppolo getting the start. he had a rough 1st half with that injured taking a look at the rap there. so did the forty-niners second quarters where we'll start 10, nothing rams. matthew stafford to tyler higbee. 15 yard touchdown. i mean, it's 17, nothing ramps later in the second garoppolo. sales. into the arms of a ram obviously a problem pass picked off by taylor rapp. but jimmy company started heating up right before the half. the finds brandon. over the middle in la territory and that set up a field goal to make it 17, 3 at
the half. niners taking some momentum and 30 posts and around the right side for the 16 yard touchdown run 17, 10 now only a touchdown away in the 3rd deebo. 10 to one jennings for the 24 yard touchdown. in 17, 17 tied. >> wow. what a turn of events. forty-niners in the red zone now. but jimmy g's pass is tipped and intercepted again by jalen ramsey. so the niners chance to take the lead quickly squanders. with 2 and a half minutes left. that's a lot of time for matthew stafford and sure enough he finds cooper cost from 4 yards out. so the rams take a 24 17 lead. minute and a half left on the clock. so the forty-niners drive the length of the field. garoppolo finds annual flu rumbles for a 43 yard gain.
