Klay Thompson Sets New NBA Record with 14 Three-Pointers

Kevin Durant doesn’t want to talk about 2019 free agency but the New York Knicks aren’t waiting to start their

Thompson set an National Basketball Association record with 14 made 3-pointers in Golden State's 149-124 victory inside the United Center. Well, it happened and now we have our first October with three 50-point games since 1962.

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 back in 1990.

On Monday night, Thompson clocked 52 points against the Chicago Bulls, with Curry chipping in with 23. Through the Warriors first seven games, the 28-year-old was averaging 15.1 points per game on 39.6 percent shooting from the field and 13.9 percent shooting from 3-point range, hitting just five of his 36 long-range attempts.

On Monday, it was more unfortunate than lucky.

Playing without Kristaps Porzingis and talented rookie Kevin Knox, the Knicks in general are in a state of rebuild and early this season in particular are mostly looking for stability in the form of learning which young players are worthy of the most minutes... They also went 17-for-27 on threes, with their 17 3-pointers in a half setting a team record.

Slump? What slump? Klay Thompson has had the most un-Klay-like start to this season you could imagine. You get off to a rough start and it snowballs, and then you just kind of stop and go, 'Oh, yeah, right, there's about 75 games left'. The Warriors were up by nearly 40 points at one point of time and the dubs were just too hot to handle for the Bulls.

Ersan Ilyasova led the scoring with 19 points while Malcolm Brogdon and Eric Bledsoe both had 17 points apiece.

With the game as good as won, it became simply a question of whether the red-hot Thompson would surpass Curry's three-pointer benchmark.

Luka Doncic scored 22 points for the Mavericks, who have lost two in a row. The new look was implemented to help stop the bleeding to a cut Thompson received in the third quarter after colliding with Damian Jones.

Zach LaVine had 20 points on 6-of-16 shooting for the Bulls.
