Thompson sets NBA 3-point record

Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson set an NBA record with 14 3-pointers as part of an NBA season-high 52-point performance

Klay Thompson set an NBA record with 14 3-pointers as part of an NBA-season-high 52-point performance, and the visiting Golden State Warriors stormed to a 149-124 win over the Chicago Bulls on Monday night.

The Warriors scored 92 points in the first half — the most ever by a road team and the second most of all time behind the Phoenix Suns, who had 107 in the first half against the Denver Nuggets on Nov. 19, 1990.

Golden State led 92-50 at the break. The 42-point margin was the fourth-largest halftime lead in history and the largest lead by a road team. Thompson finished 14 of 24 from beyond the arc. He exulted and held up three fingers with each hand after his record-breaking 3-ball dropped through the net with 4:53 remaining in the third quarter.

The shot moved Thompson past teammate Steph Curry, who sank 13 3-pointers against the New Orleans Pelicans on Nov. 8, 2016. In 26 minutes of action, Thompson made 18 of 29 field-goal attempts and grabbed five rebounds.
