Klay Thompson breaks Stephen Curry’s record for 3s in game

Golden State led 92-50 at the break.

But Klay Thompson continued to struggle behind the arc, going 1 for 5 and falling to 5 for 36 this season. The sharpshooter had hit a 3-pointer in every game since November 11, 2014.

The Bucks were missing Greek star Giannis Antetokounmpo, who was placed in the NBA's concussion protocol earlier Monday after suffering a blow to the head against Orlando at the weekend.

With Antetokounmpo missing, the Bucks spread the scoring around with no fewer than seven players reaching double figures.

Thompson made his first four shots and had six 3-pointers in the first quarter.

Nerlens Noel had 20 points and 15 rebounds and Patrick Patterson added 17 points for the Thunder. With little intrigue surrounding the final score in Warriors games this season, Curry will have something to fight for with his single-game 3-point record broken.

His effort helped Denver remain unbeaten in four home games this season.

That's usually how a guy like Griffin has traditionally gotten his points, but as he showed Philadelphia in his big night, his game also extends now into three-point territory.

LaVine and Antonio Blakeney with a career high led the Bulls with 21 points apiece. He finished with 18 points and still hasn't had a 20-point outing this season. He scored 13 points while going 0-10 from deep.

"It's unacceptable to start the game like that, especially against the defending champs", LaVine said of a deficit that reached 45 points.

Along with the loss, Curry's three-point streak came to a close after 196 straight games (including the playoffs).

The Clippers won for the fourth time in five games. Dallas got 22 points from Dennis Smith Jr.

Mavericks forward George McCloud connected on five or more 3-pointers in six consecutive matchups in 1995-96.

Curry had recently claimed five three-pointers in seven successive matches, but Thompson knocked down a record 14 three-pointers in one game as Warriors secured a 149-124 victory.

The record previously belonged to Curry, and it was Curry who had the assist that led to Thompson tying the record.

The Kings used a 43-point third quarter to propel them to victory.

Rather than any intra-team rivalry, the shooting guard says Curry encouraged him to go for the record, an attitude he feels epitomises the star point guard.
