Klay Thompson Sets New NBA Record with 14 Three-Pointers

Thompson broke Curry's National Basketball Association record with 14 3-pointers and finished with 52 points to lead the Golden State Warriors to a 149-124 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Monday night. He celebrated with teammates as they headed to the sideline for a timeout, with the Warriors leading 113-69.

They had an incredible 92 points at the half to the Bulls' 50.

After scoring 10 3-pointers in the first half, Thompson received some words of encouragement from Curry.

After the Knicks were demolished, 128-100 against the Warriors in a game that featured a 47-16 fourth quarter for the Dubs the Nets took Golden State down to the wire in a 120-114 loss on Sunday.

Thompson broke Curry's single game record of 13 made threes, which he did in a game in 2016 against the Pelicans.

Curry, responsible for 35 points in the win, put together a PlayStation performance by sinking seven of his 15 shots from range.

"This is what it's been like", coach Steve Kerr said.

None of the Warriors' Big Four played past the 4-minute mark of the third quarter. "And I don't know if I would be able to break these records I have gotten in my past like tonight without the system I play in or the team I play with, the guys I play with".

"Those are just great players just making plays, having great nights". Listen, I don't think the crowd was pleased with our first half, the coach wasn't pleased, the players weren't pleased, so we were - at halftime it wasn't pleasant in there because I don't think we played up to our capabilities.

"We're six games in".

Thompson nailed his first three 3-pointers and made six while scoring 22 in the first quarter.

Kevin Durant added 34 for the Warriors, who appeared on their way to another easy win before the Nets made it close with some sizzling three-point shooting to cut a 19-point deficit down to two late in the game.

LaVine and Antonio Blakeney with a career high led the Bulls with 21 points apiece.

Rather than any intra-team rivalry, the shooting guard says Curry encouraged him to go for the record, an attitude he feels epitomises the star point guard.

Warriors: G Shaun Livingston missed his second consecutive game because of a sore right foot.

This is because the weekend win over the Brooklyn Nets was his seventh straight game tallying five or more 3-pointers. He was waived by the New York Knicks with two years and $37.8 million remaining on his contract on October 13.
