Klay Thompson, Warriors set records during incredible performance

Klay Thompson

The Golden State Warriors set a couple of team records during a scorching first half against the Chicago Bulls on Monday night, while Klay Thompson set an impressive individual mark.

The Warriors scored 92 points in the first half of their game against the Bulls. The 92 points in the first half were a team record and the second-most ever by an NBA team in a first half, behind the 1990 Suns, who once scored 107 points. They also went 17-for-27 on threes, with their 17 3-pointers in a half setting a team record.

10 of those threes in the first half were made by Thompson. He kept up his hot shooting in the second half, making four more threes during the first eight minutes of the third quarter. That gave Thompson 14 threes for the game, which surpasses Steph Curry’s record of 13 threes made in a game.

Thompson had 52 points in 26 minutes at the time he set his record. When he gets that hot, it’s game over.
