Klay Thompson broke out in a big way on Monday.
The Warriors guard made only five 3-pointers in his first seven games of the season, and doubled that mark with an NBA-record 10 triples in the first half against the Chicago Bulls. In all, Thompson finished the half with 36 points on a scorching-hot 12-of-16 shooting.
Klay Thompson has tied the NBA record for threes in a half with 10, previously done by Chandler Parsons on Jan. 24, 2014 vs. Memphis. His 10 threes are the most ever in a first half.— Warriors PR (@WarriorsPR) October 30, 2018
His 10, first-half triples are the second-most Thompson has made in a game, period.
The offensive outburst powered a historic first half for the Warriors. Golden State scored 92 points, the second-most ever behind the Phoenix Suns, who scored 107 points in the first half against the Denver Nuggets on Nov. 10, 1990. The Warriors also hit 17 total 3-pointers, the most in NBA history.
Not bad for the second night of a back-to-back.
