  • Klay Thompson Sets New NBA Record with 14 Three-Pointers

After giving up 92 first-half points to Golden State on Monday, the Bulls allowed just 51 in the first two quarters Wednesday but still trailed by three at halftime. Thompson ended the game with 52 points in 27 minutes, also hitting a record 10 threes in the first half. And thanks to Dead archivist David Lemieux for this tweet that brought Thompson's fandom to our attention.

John Wall, whose 3-pointer with 3.2 seconds remaining gave Washington a chance, led the Wizards with 26 points.

And the Warriors witnessed Thompson do this after spending the first seven regular-season games averaging 15.1 points while shooting a combined 44-of-111 from the field (39.6 percent) and 5-of-36 from 3-point range (13.9 percent). The all-time single-game leader in points per minute is, as you can probably guess, Wilt Chamberlain who scored 2.08 points per minute in March 1962 en route to his record-shattering 100 point game.

"I just knew I was die for a big night", Thompson told reporters in a post-game presser at the United Center's media room.

Thompson said of his feat: 'That's what I do this for - those moments that you share with your team-mates. Burton, then a member of the Philadelphia 76ers, feasted on the free-throw line against his former team (Miami) making 24 of 28 from the charity stripe en route to his career-best mark.

Curry scored 16 points in the third quarter with four 3s.

Golden State's 42-point half-time lead was the fourth-largest half-time lead in history and the largest lead by a road team.

Durant had 14 points while Alfonzo McKinnie came off the bench to weigh in with 19 points. Ntilikina, whom the Knicks drafted with the eighth overall pick in 2017, played lead guard overseas before coming to the National Basketball Association. "They weren't going to let him catch the ball and go one-on-one against anybody down there".

Actually, Draymond Green had the assist on Curry's record 13th 3 against New Orleans two years ago.

Warriors: Reserve G Shaun Livingston missed his third straight game with soreness in his right foot.
