Klay Thompson, Warriors set records during incredible performance

Klay Thompson, Warriors set records during incredible performance

Putting together one of the most lethal first halves in National Basketball Association history, Golden State completely dismantled the Bulls, throttling them 149-124 at the United Center. He finished with 18 points and still hasn't had a 20-point outing this season.

The 28-year-old shooting guard scored 14 three-pointers in a 52-point performance during a 149-124 victory. He was flawless from the free-throw line with 7-7. With the shot clock turned off, New Orleans didn't foul, and D'Angelo Russell threw the ball out of bounds with 7.5 seconds remaining.

Russell led Brooklyn with 24 points, Caris LeVert scored 21 and Shabazz Napier had 16. Curry added 23 points and passed out 5 assists.

The Warriors also broke a record as a team, making 17 three-pointers in the first half.

The only uncertainty was how many records the Warriors would break and how broken the Bulls' spirit would be. Jokic is one of the best passing centers in the league, and he has shooting range out to the 3 point line. Dotson, Vonleh and Robinson started for the first time this season. In their first five games the Knicks defense has been reasonably efficent, but their offense is still a work in serious construction. Meanwhile the Bulls fall to 2-5 on the season as they allowed over 110 points for the sixth time in seven games.

Montrezl Harrell scored a career-high 30 points off the bench to help the Los Angeles Clippers rout the short-handed Houston Rockets.

Burton, who wasn't known as a particularly potent scorer, became one of the defacto leaders of Sixers that year along with Dana Barros, Jeff Malone, and Clearance Weatherspoon.

Carmelo Anthony paced the Rockets with a season-high 24 points. In the first quarter alone, he went 6-of-7 from three.

With Antetokounmpo missing, the Bucks spread the scoring around with no fewer than seven players reaching double figures. The Bulls also got 19 points from Jabari Parker, 15 from Cameron Payne and 13 from Antonio Blakeney.
