Scoring 10 three-pointers in the first half alone, Thompson obliterated a record set by Chandler Parson for most three-pointers in a single half. Well, it happened and now we have our first October with three 50-point games since 1962.

Thompson's wonderful performance led the visiting Golden State Warriors past the Chicago Bulls 149-124. They'll be playing their sixth game of the season against the Porzingis-less Knicks. The Golden State Warriors marksman buried 10 of his long-range bombs in the first half only to hit again and again in the second half and even bury his very last shot with an unusual headband. Klay Thompson and Steph Curry are set to complete the three-peat this year off the strength of their three-pointers.

It's always hard to consistently gauge the performance of a tanking team, but this matchup might be the lowest point of the season yet.

"I really believe, I don't know if I would have been able to break the records I have got in my past, just like tonight, without the system I play in or the team I'm with or the guys I play with", Thompson said.

When the buzzer mercifully sounded, the Bulls had given up 149 points in a in a 25-point defeat to the Warriors.

Tim Hardaway Jr led NY with 24 points.

Thompson exited the game having scored 52 points on 18-for-29 shooting from the field in just over 26 minutes of action.

Luka Doncic scored 22 points for the Mavericks, who have lost two in a row.

The Clippers' Montrezl Harrell scored a career-high 30 points and Lou Williams chipped in 23 as the visitors beat Houston 133-113.

Basketball fans across the globe went into meltdown over the pyrotechnics of NBA star Klay Thompson, who made a mockery of the sport by draining three-pointers for fun on Tuesday. 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.

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