After 941 days not playing, it took 40 seconds of game time for Klay Thompson to get his first basket, a floating jumper from about eight feet out.

Thompson saw his time in spurts of about 4 minutes each at the start and end of each quarter. Despite limited action, Thompson made his presence felt — for more reasons than the energy emanating through the arena. In 9 first-half minutes, Thompson launched nine shots.

He was 7 of 18 from the field and 3 of 8 from 3-point range, and ended up with 17 points in the Warriors 96-82 win over the Cavaliers.For everyone in the arena, Sunday was all about Klay.Bay Area News Group’s Evan Webeck contributed to this report.SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA – JAN. 9: Golden State Warriors’ Klay Thompson (11) acknowledges the crowd as he heads to the locker room after their NBA game against the Cleveland Cavaliers at Chase Center in San Francisco, Calif., on Sunday, Jan. 9, 2022.
