Klay Thompson breaks Stephen Curry's record for 3s in game

But Klay Thompson continued to struggle behind the arc, going 1 for 5 and falling to 5 for 36 this season.

Klay Thompson followed in the footsteps of Golden State Warriors teammate Steph Curry by breaking an National Basketball Association three-point record as the Chicago Bulls were dispatched on Monday night. I thought it was a good effort in the second half. "But when a dude gets on a run like that, you can't do (expletive) about it".

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

Thompson set the mark when he nailed a 3 with just under five minutes remaining in the third quarter.

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

Curry has had an impressive start to the 2018-19 season.

NBC Sports Bay Area: Thompson may not have broken the record without Curry's encouragement. The franchise record is four straight 20-point victories, set by the San Francisco Warriors in 1966-67, and it appeared the Warriors were going to equal that. With exemplary performances by Julius Randle and D'Angelo Russell - who scored 20 and 17 respectively, the Lakers came away with a 117-97 win, their second win during the 2016-2017 season. Draymond Green posted 11 assists in 25 minutes. Of course, so do Curry's and Durant's, and both are averaging more than 30 points.


This is because the weekend win over the Brooklyn Nets was his seventh straight game tallying five or more 3-pointers. "When they hit us in the mouth, we didn't respond well".

"Before I went out for the second half, Steph just looked at the box score and said "go get it". And you know, once I started clicking it just shows what our team is made of.

Klay Thompson popped to the wing off a screen from Stephen Curry, caught the pass from Kevin Durant and dribbled to his left before launching the record 3-pointer. The Bulls trailed by 42 at halftime, tied for the fourth-largest deficit in league history. "We have to have better energy, better toughness".

The Warriors improved their record against the Eastern Conference to an astounding 105-19 since 2014-15.

Ben Simmons scored 21 points to lead seven Philadelphia players in double figures in a rout of visiting Atlanta. "I'm just happy it's my team-mate and nobody else. That's what this year is about - enjoying our time together, hoping it continues".

He finished with 52 points and five rebounds as the Warriors won 149-124.
