CHICAGO — Golden State Warriors All-Star swingman Klay Thompson set a new NBA record by knocking down 14 3-pointers in Monday night’s 149-124 win over the Chicago Bulls.

Thompson went 14-for-24 from beyond the arc and 18-for-29 from the field, racking up 52 points in 27 minutes while raining down shots from all over the floor.

Thompson received a loud ovation from the United Center crowd after knocking down the record-setting triple, breaking teammate Stephen Curry’s mark of 13 3-pointers in a game.

Thompson broke the record donning a headband. It was a rare look that was the result of a cut on his head after a third-quarter collision with Warriors center Damian Jones.

The injury, according to the NBC Sports Bay Area broadcast, required two stitches.

Shortly after hitting the record-breaking shot, he was subbed out and went to the locker room for the treatment before returning and taking a place on the bench.

In the first half, Thompson’s 10 3-pointers tied Chandler Parsons’ record set in 2014. The Warriors also set an NBA record for 3-pointers made in a half by knocking down 17 in the first half.

Monday marked the fourth time in Thompson’s career he scored at least 30 points in a half, the 11th time he scored at least 40 in a game and the third time he scored at least 50.
