Warriors' Klay Thompson Explodes for NBA-record 10 3-pointers in First Half

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. 

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.
