The Golden State Warriors are hotter than lava. They’re hotter than fire. They’re hotter than hot.

In the first half of Monday night’s game against the Chicago Bulls, the Warriors scored 92 points, which set a franchise record for the most points they’ve ever scored in a half. It also was the second-highest total for a first half in NBA history.

Not only did they score a whopping 92, but they only allowed 50 points to the Bulls. The resulting 42-point halftime lead was also one for the history books, as it was the fourth-highest lead at the break since the shot clock era.

The charge was led by Klay Thompson, who broke out of his slump in a large way, by setting an NBA record with 10 three-pointers in the first half. He finished the half with 36 points, while Steph Curry threw in 23 of his own.

My goodness. This team is something.
