If there’s one game that could break Klay Thompson’s 3-point record in a single game, it’s Klay Thompson.
Or Steph Curry. It is never wise to exclude this type.
Thompson drained a whopping 12 3-pointers in the Warriors’ 141-114 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday night at Chase Center, finishing just two triples shy of the NBA’s 14-game record set by none other than himself- even in October December 29, 2018, against the Chicago Bulls.
While speaking with NBC Sports Bay Area’s Kerith Burke, Chris Mullin and Festus Ezeli on “Warriors Postgame Live,” Thompson was asked if he had hoped to stay in the game to try and chase his own 3-point record in a single. game before being pulled from the game with 4:41 remaining in the fourth quarter.
“Oh man, I was campaigning for this, but we had a quick turnaround on Wednesday and I don’t think the basketball gods like it when you’re chasing records. You gotta let them happen organically.”

Thompson finished the game with 42 points on 15 of 22 shooting from the field and a stunning 12 of 16 from 3-point range.
Coming so close to breaking such a prestigious record would certainly be disheartening for anyone not already older than the current record.
