Klay Thompson Breaks NBA's 3-Point Record Held By Teammate Stephen Curry

Klay Thompson Breaks NBA's 3-Point Record Held By Teammate Stephen 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.

With the Warriors teammates' big nights and Griffin's 50-point outburst for Detroit coming in just a four-night span, it continued a torrid start for scorers that Curry said made it seem like "everybody's clicking at the same time". "I can't even tell you how lucky I am and how I feel every night watching these guys, how unselfish they are". 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. Thompson was 14 for 24 against the Bulls.

With that, the 28-year-old shooting guard broke an National Basketball Association record previously held by teammate Stephen Curry for the most 3-pointers in a game and the Warriors improved to 7-1.

The 28-year-old Thompson - who has struggled to find his scoring touch in the opening weeks of the season - finished the game with 52 points as the Warriors improved to 6-1 in the Western Conference.

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

Kerr will be hoping that this Curry-Durant comfort zone continues, and the Warriors have a chance to extend their winning run against the Chicago Bulls on Monday before returning to California for matches against the New Orleans Pelicans and the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday and Friday. But with Lauri Markkanen, Kris Dunn, Bobby Portis and Denzel Valentine all out with injuries, this one got ugly in a hurry.

"Its amusing actually 'cause you think it's like a no-hitter or a flawless game in baseball, no one wants to say anything to you". Like, you don't really mention anything to him.

"The most important thing was I passed it to him on his 14th", he said. The shot he makes.

Curry, responsible for 35 points in the win, put together a PlayStation performance by sinking seven of his 15 shots from range. Either way, this was quite a night. He also missed two in a row last week because of a bruised left knee.

Mavericks forward George McCloud connected on five or more 3-pointers in six consecutive matchups in 1995-96.
