Klay Thompson sets National Basketball Association record for threes in one game

Wednesday, 31 Oct, 2018

KEVIN Durant scored 25 of his game-high 41 points in the fourth quarter as National Basketball Association champions Golden State ended the game on a 39-9 run to overwhelm the Knicks in ny. Thompson scored 52 points - the third 50-point game in the league this year - shot only 29 times and made an NBA-record 14 threes in just three quarters.

He had been in a shooting slump to start the season, making just 5 of 36 from behind the arc in the Warriors' first seven games.

Curry scored 16 points in the first quarter and drained his final three pointer of the contest with 67 seconds remaining to make it 115-108.

Luka Doncic scored 22 points, and Wesley Matthews had 21. "I'm sorry. You just can't let that happen". "I just knew it".

"I forced a few bad shots, but I was so anxious".

"That's what I do this for is those moments that you share with your teammates", Thompson said. "It was an awesome night that I'll never forget".

Ntilikina scored 17 points and added a rebound, two assists and a steal to go with three turnovers in a 128-100 loss to the Golden State Warriors. Thompson surpassed teammate Steph Curry's record of 13 triples, set in November 2016. Likewise, the Golden State Warriors, themselves, were on a 184-point pace by halftime but that would've been particularly mean-spirited for the Warriors and Thompson to continue to pour it onto the hapless Bulls. "It's the best feeling", Klay Thompson said of being in the zone.

"But he got it going tonight to say the least".

Today, Alfonzo McKinnie came home to the city that he grew up in, surprised his mom with a new house, and scored a career-high in front of friends and family.

Elsewhere on Monday, the eagerly anticipated match-up between the league's last two unbeaten teams, the Eastern Conference-leading Toronto and Milwaukee, saw the Bucks run out winners by 124-109.

The Raptors meanwhile were missing Kawhi Leonard, opting to rest the star forward for the contest.

The Hornets had eight players score in double figures.

Holiday then gave the Pelicans a one-point lead with three seconds left and, during a Brooklyn timeout, the Nets' Ed Davis was called for a technical for shoving Solomon Hill.

The 1971-72 Bucks, led by Hall of Famers Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Oscar Robertson, started 7-0.
