WATCH: Klay Thompson Breaks NBA’s Single-Game 3-Point Record Held by Warriors Teammate Steph Curry

The Golden State Warriors have won three titles in four seasons, yet they still do things on a nightly basis that amaze.

On Monday night against the Chicago Bulls, guard Klay Thompson set an NBA record with 14 made 3-pointers, breaking fellow Splash Brother Steph Curry’s previous mark of 13.

Thompson put himself on pace for the record with a blistering first half, tying the NBA record for threes in a half (held by Chandler Parsons) with 10 made on 14 attempts.

His efforts were part of a stunning Warriors offensive output in the first half. Cumulatively, the Warriors hit 17 3-pointers, an NBA team record for threes in a half. That helped them to an eye-popping 92-50 halftime lead; it’s the most points the Warriors have ever scored in a single half, and the second-most points any NBA team had scored in a first half ever.

Once he pulled even with Curry with 13 threes, the Warriors began feeding Thompson to get the record. After a few attempts came up short, he canned the record with just under five minutes remaining in the third quarter.

“That’s what I do this for is those moments that you share with your teammates,” Thompson said of celebrating the record with the rest of the Warriors. “That’s why we play basketball. It’s a collective effort. And I don’t know if I would be able to break these records I have gotten in my past like tonight without the system I play in or the team I play with, the guys I play with.”

Thompson was pulled from the game shortly after setting the record. He finished 14-for-24 from 3-point range, and ended with 52 points in just 27 minutes.
