CHICAGO – All-star Swingman Golden State warriors Klay Thompson set an NBA record by knocking down 149-124 victory over the Chicago Bulls 14 3-pointers on Monday night.
Thompson went 14-for-24 from beyond the arc and 18-for-29 from the field, collecting 52 points in 27 minutes and rained the shots from everywhere on the ground. After his battles for the season, both Thompson and his teammates were ready to break out – and he did so in a record-breaking way.
"I just knew I was expected for a big night," Thompson said. "I just knew it."
Klay Thompson set an NBA record on Monday night with 14 3-hands, leaving his fellow NBA awe-inspiring on social networks.
A referee says the Golden State Warriors will pay approximately $ 40 million for renovations to Oakland's Oracle Arena, leaving them after this season.
Thompson struck early and often shots and the warriors repeatedly searched for him throughout the night. In the first half, Thompson's 10 3-points set Chandler Parsons 2014 record. The Warriors have also set a NBA record for Team 3-pointers, which were knocked down in the first half by a 17er.
"It's the best feeling," said Thompson, to be in the zone. "Something that I did not feel in the first six or seven games, but to get out of the crisis record I could not ask for a better way, and I will continue that moment on Wednesday, and it's one of the best Feelings in basketball when you touch the ball and feel like it's going to happen anytime. "
Thompson received a loud cheer from the United Center crowd after he broke the record-breaking triple to mark Curry's 13 13-pointers in a game. It was a record that Thompson and his teammates were very proud of. There was a joy in the dressing room of the Warriors when Thompson left with the ball and his jersey in his hand.
"I really do not believe I know if I would have been able to break the records I had in my past, as well as tonight, without the system in which I play or the team, I'm with or the guys I play with, "Thompson said. "Because they knew it before I went to the second half, Steph looked at the boxing score and said, 'Go and get it.' And that only shows you the selflessness that is in it KD and Draymond and DJ and all the others out there on the floor to find me and give me a good look. "
Curry and his teammates knew Thompson was" It was like a pitcher, one No-hitter throws, "said Curry. "Well, you really do not tell him anything, it's just anyone who finds out how we're going to give him the ball and run our offense, obviously making him beat down the shots."
Klay Thompson joins the SVP after he set the NBA record for three in a game of 14 and beat Steph Curry, who previously held the record.
Curry had no problems with Thompson's record
"Records are obviously destined to be broken," Curry said. "I'm just happy it's my teammate and nobody else, and I saw it in person."
For Warriors head coach Steve Kerr, it was another reminder of how special his team is, to which the players came together to help Thompson set a new mark.
"I did not even realize what happened, record by record, until they called for a break," Kerr said. "He had made a pair in the second half and I heard Klay say," Two more! Two more! "And then I realized – and I did not even know who had the record, and so on I asked Steph, "Do you have the record?" He says, "Yeah." At that point, the boys fed him every time, I think they care so much about Klay and feel him for him because he has a tough start had to go into the season, and obviously he did it tonight, to say the least. "
Thompson broke the record as he put on a headband. It was a rare sight, the result of a head injury he suffered in the third quarter with Warriors Center Damian Jones. The injury required two stitches, but Thompson enjoyed the comic relief the headband provided.
"I looked like Jackie Moon out there," he said. "I felt good and he's one of my favorite characters in all sports movies, so it's part of why I broke the record."
"It was like a pitchfork throwing a no-hitter, it's really just anyone else who finds out how we're giving him the ball and running our offensive to obviously help him beat down the shots."
Steph Curry on Klay Thompson's Record Night
It was a moment in basketball history that Thompson and his teammates would not soon forget.
"Two great moments, great to be a part of," Warriors superstar Kevin Durant said. "Watching Steph break the record two years ago and see Klay cracking, it's only fitting that these two keep the records that hold the most 3-point shots in a match Ever on earth, no one will ever shoot like these two. "
Monday was the fourth time in Thompson's career that he scored at least 30 points in one half, the eleventh time he scored at least 40 points in a game and The third time he scored at least 50. It was the third time in a week that a member of the Warriors delivered a show show. Curry scored 51 points in three quarters on Wednesday in a win over the Washington Wizards and Durant scored 25 points in the fourth quarter of Friday's win over the New York Knicks. Thompson's performance on Monday was an icing on an incredible cake.
"It feels like the fifth year of training the Golden State Warriors," Kerr said. I can not even tell you how happy I am and how I feel every night when I watch this guy and how selfless they are, they take turns, they encourage each other, they want both others are doing well, and we have all that talent, but the key is that these guys engage each other, they play hard for each other, and they want everyone to succeed, and that's why it works, and it was incredible for the ride be there.
