Warriors guard Klay Thompson sets NBA record for 3-pointers in a game against Bulls

A Warriors player set another NBA record Monday.

Klay Thompson knocked down his league-record 14th 3-pointer in the third quarter of Golden State’s matchup with the Bulls. Thompson’s teammate Stephen Curry held the previous record of 13.

The 28-year-old sharpshooter connected on 10 triples in the first half before adding five more in the third quarter. He tallied 52 points in his first 26 minutes on the floor.

Thompson had struggled this season before the matchup in Chicago. He entered the game averaging 15.1 points in seven games while shooting just 13.9 percent from 3-point range.

It was Thompson’s third career 50-point game.

Golden State led the Bulls 92-50 at the end of the second quarter, the fourth largest halftime advantage since 1954-55.
