The Golden State Warriors set an NBA record of 51 points in the first quarter to earn a 142-111 victory over the Denver Nuggets.

Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson ran riot in the Warriors’ fifth straight win, each producing 31 points on the way to clinching the Western Conference top spot for the defending NBA champions
