Klay Thompson breaks three-point record as Golden State win again

Golden State Warriors v Chicago Bulls

Klay Thompson followed in the footsteps of Golden State Warriors teammate Steph Curry by breaking an NBA three-point record as the Chicago Bulls were dispatched on Monday night.

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.

Top of the Western Conference, Warriors are now on a five-game winning streak, with the Bulls languishing towards the foot of the Eastern Conference.

Denver Nuggets remain closest to the Warriors after a narrow 116-111 win against the New Orleans Pelicans.

Nikola Jokic was the standout player for the Nuggets, the Serb claiming 12 points, nine rebounds and 10 assists.

Toronto Raptors were the latest team to be swept aside by the Milwaukee Bucks, who sit top of the Eastern Conference with seven wins from seven and remain the only unbeaten team in the NBA this year.

A 124-109 win for the Bucks means they are enjoying their best start to a season since 1971/72.

LeBron James top-scored for the Los Angeles Lakers, but their poor start to the Western Conference continued with a 124-120 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Elsewhere in the Eastern Conference, Philadelphia 76ers beat the Atlanta Hawks 113-92, while Willie Cauley-Stein’s 26 points helped Sacramento Kings to a 123-113 victory over Miami Heat and the New York Knicks picked up a second win of the season as they saw off the Brooklyn Jets 115-96.
