Klay on record-setting game: 'I was due for a big night'


Klay Thompson emerged from a shooting slump in a big way Monday night.

In case we were wondering whether it was possible for the Golden State Warriors to take their game a new level, they answered that question in the first half against the Chicago Bulls Monday evening.

The 52 points were also the most scored in the National Basketball Association this season, beating out the 51 that Curry pumped in during a win last week. Thompson went 18-of-29 from the field and logged just 26 minutes and 33 seconds of action.

Merkel to give up leadership of party but remain chancellor
The other risk for Merkel is that her SPD coalition partners come third in Hesse, which is home to financial hub Frankfurt. That's a major concession for Merkel, who for years has insisted that the chancellor should also be party leader.

The long-range assault was part of a night that saw Thompson pump in 52 points during Golden State's 149-124 win over the Chicago Bulls.

Adding to Chicago's woes was the fact that the Warriors' two other stars weren't just worthless participants as Steph Curry and Kevin Durant combined for 37 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists. Reserve guard Alfonzo McKinnie was the team's third-leading scorer with 19 points and shot 4-for-6 from deep. After opening up with a 44-28 first quarter lead the Warriors blew things wide open with a 92-50 halftime lead.

It's safe to say Thompson is now back on track.
