Golden State's 92 first-half points are the second most ever in a first half. Phoenix scored 107 points in the first half vs. Denver on Nov. 10, 1990.

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.
