Klay Thompson breaks National Basketball Association three-pointer record

Kevin Durant doesn’t want to talk about 2019 free agency but the New York Knicks aren’t waiting to start their

Thompson set a league-record for threes made in a game with 14.

Thompson was all fired up from the start as he buried 6 triples in the 1st quarter alone, surpassing his season-high of 5 threes.

Golden State led the Bulls 92-50 at the end of the second quarter, the fourth largest half-time advantage since 1954-55.

Thompson set the mark with just under five minutes remaining in the third quarter on Monday night against the Chicago Bulls to cap off a remarkable shooting night which saw him pour in 52 points in just 27 minutes of action. Meanwhile the Bulls fall to 2-5 on the season as they allowed over 110 points for the sixth time in seven games.

The Pelicans edged a thriller against the Brooklyn Nets 117-115 as Jrue Holiday scored five of his game-high 26 points in the final 22 seconds. Thompson had set the tone for a superb display in the first quarter when he exploded for 22 points to help the reigning National Basketball Association champions surge into a 44-28 lead.

Syria ordered Gaza rocket fire at Israel with Iran backing: army
Israel rarely acknowledges it has reached a truce with Gaza's militant groups, which it designates as terrorist organisations. The report comes after Egypt and the United Nations exerted pressure on Israel to restore calm between the IDF and Hamas.

Asked about being in the zone, he said: "It's the best feeling".

The back-to-back champions have now won five of six to open the season after finishing off strong at Madison Square Garden to triumph 128-100 on Friday (local time). "They're a resilient bunch and I thought they competed their tails off and it was good for the fans to see that we didn't just succumb to their talent or their aura so to speak". "I'm sorry. You just can't let that happen". Likewise, the Golden State Warriors, themselves, were on a 184-point pace by halftime but that would've been particularly mean-spirited for the Warriors and Thompson to continue to pour it onto the hapless Bulls.

The Bucks were missing Greek star Giannis Antetokounmpo, who was placed in the NBA's concussion protocol earlier Monday after suffering a blow to the head against Orlando at the weekend. He finished with 18 points and still hasn't had a 20-point outing this season.

The Hornets had eight players score in double figures.

The 1971-72 Bucks, led by Hall of Famers Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Oscar Robertson, started 7-0. Lou Williams, another former Rocket, had 23 points for Los Angeles off the bench and Danilo Gallinari scored 16.
