Curry sets National Basketball Association records as Warriors thump Nets

Klay Thompson Sets New NBA Record with 14 Three-Pointers AROUND THE NBA
Domingo Copeland | 31 October, 2018, 09:31

Klay Thompson has broken team-mate Steph Curry's National Basketball Association record for 3-pointers in a game by hitting 14 during a brilliant offensive performance by the Golden State Warriors.

The team was clinging to life at halftime after allowing 92 points to the Warriors in the first half alone, finally passing away at the hands of a 149-123 defeat. The very next game, Curry went 13-for-17 on 3-pointers to break the previous record of 12 that he shared with himself, Kobe Bryant and former Warrior Donyell Marshall.

Thompson, whose previous season high was 19 points, almost doubled that in the first half alone. Thompson ended the game with 52 points in 27 minutes, also hitting a record 10 threes in the first half.

Thompson set a league-record for threes made in a game with 14.

On a night when Klay was hot, Curry played the second fiddle but affected the game in multiple dimensions.

Klay Thompson exploded at the United Center. Jokic came one rebound shy of a triple double in Denver's win over the Pelicans Monday night, and for the season, he's averaging 21.5 points, 10.3 rebounds and 6.8 assists.

Stephen Curry added 29 points and sank six 3-pointers, giving him at least five from beyond the arc in every game this season.

He finished 17 of 24 from the floor, including 5 of 9 from 3-point range, and seized nine rebounds.

Playing without Kristaps Porzingis and talented rookie Kevin Knox, the Knicks in general are in a state of rebuild and early this season in particular are mostly looking for stability in the form of learning which young players are worthy of the most minutes...

The Knicks have lost five straight since a season-opening win, though they have fallen to contenders Golden State, Boston and Milwaukee.

Tim Hardaway Jr. led NY with 24 points while Frank Ntilikina had 17 points. He exited the game with 4:05 left in the third quarter to treat a cut on his forehead that prompted him to wear a yellow headband in the second half. We knew that at some point he would erupt like Vesuvius and some poor team was going to end up like Pompeii.
