Golden State sets an NBA record with 17 first-half threes

They’re on fire!

NBA: Golden State Warriors at Denver Nuggets Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Other than Steph Curry, the Golden State Warriors weren’t having a great season shooting the three-pointer.

That changed on Monday night against the Chicago Bulls. Whoa did it ever change.

The Warriors splashed in an absurd 17 threes in the first half alone, which set an NBA record for most threes in a half.

The team was led by Klay Thompson, who had 10 threes in the half, which was the most ever in a first half, and tied for the most all-time in a half.

The performance by Thompson was truly unbelievable, but the team performance was spectacular. And it helped lead the team to a 92-point half, which was the second-highest first half in NBA history, and the highest-scoring half in franchise history.

This team is truly something else. And while the poor Bulls fans may not get to watch their team play well, they certainly got to see some history.
