Three takeaways from the Chicago Bulls’ Monday night blowout

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 hit his 14th three from his 24th attempt with five minutes to go in the third term.

Golden State Warriors dismantled the Chicago Bulls 149-124. He had made just five of 36 threes on the season despite shooting a career 41.9% from beyond the arc.

Durant re-signed with the Warriors in July and will make $30 million this season. The All-Star's 10 3-pointers in a half tied a record set by Chandler Parsons.

"Before I went out for the second half, Steph just looked at the box score and said "go get it", Thompson said.

It's always hard to consistently gauge the performance of a tanking team, but this matchup might be the lowest point of the season yet.




Ben Simmons had a season-high 21 points and was just one assist shy of a triple-double as he led Philadelphia to a thumping 113-92 National Basketball Association home win over the Atlanta Hawks. Jonas Valanciunas scored 17 points, Danny Green had 15 and Serge Ibaka finished with 11 as the Raptors eclipsed the 5-0 start they recorded in 2015-16.

Holiday then gave the Pelicans a one-point lead with three seconds left and, during a Brooklyn timeout, the Nets' Ed Davis was called for a technical for shoving Solomon Hill. 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.

Luka Doncic scored 22 points for the Mavericks, who have lost two in a row.

Zach LaVine led the Bulls with 20 points. Thompson scored 52 points for the game in 27 minutes on the court. Curry added 23 points and passed out 5 assists. He exited the game with 4:05 left in the third quarter to treat a cut on his forehead that prompted him to wear a yellow headband in the second half.

Thompson was undeniably efficient last night with only 29 field goals attempted but that just barely puts him in the top 100 of fewest shot attempts in a 50+ point game.
