Klay Thompson Breaks NBA's 3-Point Record Held By Teammate Stephen Curry

Kevin Durant

Klay Thompson broke teammate Stephen Curry's National Basketball Association record with 14 3-pointers and finished with 52 points to lead the Golden State Warriors to a 149-124 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Monday night.

While Thompson's father, Mychal, was busy in his broadcast role with the Lakers, Thompson got props from another member of the Warriors' family: Draymond Green's mother.

Prior to the game, head coach Steve Kerr had stated he wasn't anxious about Thompson's shooting struggles through the first seven games of the season, via Yahoo Sports. 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 all-time single-game leader in points per minute is, as you can probably guess, Wilt Chamberlain who scored 2.08 points per minute in March 1962 en route to his record-shattering 100 point game.

Thompson hit his 14th three from his 24th attempt with five minutes to go in the third term. The Warriors will open their new arena in San Francisco that season, which will surely bring in more revenue. The NBA record, for those wondering, is 107 points in a half. Trey Burke added 15 points, and Damyean Dotson finished with 12 points.

Khris Middleton and Ersan Ilyasova both scored 16 points apiece as Milwaukee moved to within two wins of matching the franchise-best 7-0 start of the 1971-72 team led by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Two days earlier against Atlanta, Carter had his first double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

With Antetokounmpo missing, the Bucks spread the scoring around with no fewer than seven players reaching double figures.

"Its amusing actually 'cause you think it's like a no-hitter or a flawless game in baseball, no one wants to say anything to you".

Zach LaVine and Antonio Blakeney led the Bulls with 21 points, and Wendell Carter Jr. scored 18.

Curry scored 37 points with seven 3-pointers for his sixth 30-point game of the season and dished out nine assists, and the Warriors beat the New Orleans Pelicans 131-121 on Wednesday night for their sixth straight win.
