Klay Thompson set an National Basketball Association record with 14 3-pointers as part of a season-high 52-point performance, and the visiting Golden State Warriors stormed to a 149-124 win over the Chicago Bulls on Monday night. Thompson surpassed teammate Steph Curry's record of 13 triples, set in November 2016.

Thompson hadn't been at his best in the Warriors' first seven games, averaging just 15.1 points while shooting only 13.9 percent from 3-point range.

Kevin Durant scored 25 of his game-high 41 points in the fourth quarter on Friday night (Oct 26) as the Golden State Warriors ended the game on a 42-9 run to complete a furious rally to beat the host New York Knicks, 128-100.

Klay Thompson #11 of the Golden State Warriors drives to the basket against the Chicago Bulls on October 29, 2018 at United Center in Chicago, Illinois. His contract comes to an end next season and it is quite possible that he will consider free agency as it is quite possible that he ends up getting a lot more money on his new contract.

Here are a few nuggets that you may have missed from what was another are-you-kidding-me Warriors performance this season.

"So the next day you're anxious about where his mental space is, and the guy goes out and reads his newspaper before the game, like he always does, and goes out and scores 60 in three quarters the day after he misses a practice".

Klay Thompson continued to struggle behind the arc, going 1 for 5 and falling to 5 for 36 this season.

The record for most threes made in a single game didn't exactly impress Klay's father, Mychal, however.

Golden State used its big first half to cruise to a 149-124 victory over Chicago. He finished with 18 points and still hasn't had a 20-point outing this season. Reserve guard Alfonzo McKinnie was the team's third-leading scorer with 19 points and shot 4-for-6 from deep. He added eight rebounds, five assists and three steals. He hit his 14th three from his 24th attempt with five minutes left in the third term.

Zach LaVine and Antonio Blakeney paced the Bulls with 21 points apiece.
