It was only a matter of time before Klay Thompson broke out from his shooting slump. And when he did, the other Splash Brother looked like the best shooter in a team that also had Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant.
Thompson broke his Golden State Warriors teammate Curry's 2016 record for most three-pointers in an NBA game and made 14 out of 24 shots against the lowly Chicago Bulls (Final score: 149-124). Starting the season five of 36 from beyond the arc in the Dubs' first seven games, the three-time champion and four-time All-Star almost tripled that output with just under five minutes left in the third quarter and 52 points.
He may have even eclipsed his career-high of 60 if they didn't blow out the Bulls early—they had 92 in the first half—and Thompson didn't sit out the final canto. The unbelievable shooting display came on the heels of Curry's 51 points (11 threes) vs the Washington Wizards and Kevin Durant's 41 points (24 in the fourth quarter) vs the New York Knicks.
By halftime, netizens were already freaking out over Klay going supernova and dialing in 10 attempts from rainbow territory. Some were left speechless and expressed their utter amazement through hilarious memes.
