Klay Thompson breaks team-mate Steph Curry's record for 3-pointers

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.

The previous record, of course, was held by his teammate Steph Curry, who had made 13 in a game in November of 2016.

The All-Star guard busted out of the slump quickly with 22 points in the first quarter and had 36 at the half as Golden State was up 92-50.

Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson shoots the ball against Chicago Bulls forward Justin Holiday (7) and guard Zach LaVine (8) during Monday night's game. Meanwhile the Bulls fall to 2-5 on the season as they allowed over 110 points for the sixth time in seven games. He had 10 points in a 12-4 spurt that turned a six-point deficit into a 93-91 lead with 8:16 to play, and then followed Burke's 3-pointer that gave NY its last lead with five straight points.

Up until tonight, they had Curry and Durant clicking and the question was, "What happens when Thompson gets it going?"

Oil tumbles for third week 'as fear selling spreads'
Brent crude oil fell $1.12 or 1.5% to a low of $75.77 per barrel and was trading around $76.24, down 65 cents, by 1130 GMT. Also this week, commodities were hit by a US stock sell-off as risk aversion spread through financial markets.

In this article, let us take a look at three talking points from this game at the United Center. Expect a raucous home crowd to show their appreciation for Durant and begin the process of wooing him to the Big Apple.

The back-to-back champions have now won five of six to open the season after finishing off strong at Madison Square Garden to triumph 128-100 on Friday (local time).

While Thompson's father, Mychal, was busy in his broadcast role with the Lakers, Thompson got props from another member of the Warriors' family: Draymond Green's mother. Karl-Anthony Towns finished with 16 points for a listless Minnesota squad dealing with the distraction of star Jimmy Butler's trade request.

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.

With Antetokounmpo missing, the Bucks spread the scoring around with no fewer than seven players reaching double figures. Malcolm Brogdon scored 13 points, Brook Lopez added 11 and John Henson collected 12 rebounds for the Bucks. Milwaukee is two wins shy of matching the franchise-best 7-0 start from 1971-72.
