Klay Thompson is no longer under a cold spell and he just broke out of his shooting slump in style.
The Golden State Warriors shooting guard went on a rampage versus the Chicago Bulls on Monday night and he did so in record-breaking fashion by converting on 14 three-pointers on the night which breaks Stephen Curry’s all-time NBA record.
Heck, Thompson isn’t the only one breaking records. The Warriors nailed 17 three-pointers in the first half, a new NBA record.
The Warriors have set an NBA record for three-point field goals in a half with 17 (17-of-27 3FG). They have set a franchise record for points in a half with 92).
And as Monte Poole of NBC Sports points out, they’ve also shattered their previous franchise-record for points in a half.
“With 92 points in the first half, Warriors surpass their previous team record of 87 points in a half. 92 is second-highest first-half total in NBA history.”
Furthermore, to top it all off, the Warriors’ 92 points in the first half are the second-most in NBA history. The Phoenix Suns hold that record, scoring 107 points in a half back in 1990 versus the Denver Nuggets.
“Golden State’s 92 first-half points are the second most ever in a first half. Phoenix scored 107 points in the first half vs. Denver on Nov. 10, 1990.”
For the record, Thompson has 52 points and counting after knocking down his 14th triple of the evening.
Yeah, it’s real, folks. The Splash Brothers are officially back and better than ever.
