Klay Thompson broke out of his early-season slump in spectacular fashion Monday night, breaking teammate Stephen Curry's record with 14 three-pointers and finishing with a game-high 52 points.

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.

Thompson's first-half shooting spearheaded a record-setting half for the Warriors, who knocked down an NBA-record 17 3-pointers in the first half.

Meanwhile, Stephen Curry added 23 first half points. "I just got to get these guys to understand how to play 48 minutes". They failed to equal the franchise record of four straight 20 point wins set by the San Francisco Warriors in the 1966-67 season.

Thompson, whose previous season high was 19 points, almost doubled that in the first half alone.

Nikola Jokic had 22 points and 12 rebounds, and Paul Millsap's putback with 0.1 seconds left in overtime gave the Denver Nuggets a 108-107 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night. The 42-point margin was the fourth-largest half-time lead in history and the largest lead by a road team. He finished with 18 points on Sunday and is five of 36 overall from three-point range this season.

It was unclear what happened with the volatile center, who was sitting in street clothes on the Golden State bench not far from where Curry had made a 3-pointer on a shot where it appeared he may have also drawn contact.

Ersan Ilyasova led the scoring with 19 points while Malcolm Brogdon and Eric Bledsoe both had 17 points apiece. It was the second-highest scoring half ever by an National Basketball Association team.

Despite being a career 41.9 percent shooter from distance, Thompson entered Monday's matchup with just five makes from the perimeter on 36 attempts for the season (.139).

Zach LaVine had 20 points on 6-of-16 shooting for the Bulls.
