Klay Thompson shot himself out of slump and back into the NBA record book Monday night in Chicago.
Thompson drained 14 3-pointers, surpassing by one the NBA single-game record held by teammate Stephen Curry since Nov. 7, 2016.
No. 14 came on a 27-foot jump shot with 4:53 remaining in the third quarter, off a pass from Kevin Durant. It also gave the Warriors a 113-69 lead over the Bulls.
Thompson finished with 52 points on 18-of-29 shooting, including 14-of-24 from beyond the arc. He needed less than three quarters to destroy Chicago's defense.
And to think, Thompson came into the game mired in a slump, shooting 13.9 percent beyond the arc and 34.6 percent overall. Through the first seven games, he had made a total five 3-pointers, in 36 attempts.
