For those who have been following the Warriors this season, Thompson has been off to a rough start from deep. But, any great shooter will tell you, despite poor shooting you have to keep shooting the ball.
Thanks to Thompson’s blistering hot shooting, Golden State tallied 92-points in the first record, the second most points ever scored in a half.
Golden State's 92 first-half points are the second most ever in a first half. Phoenix scored 107 points in the first half vs. Denver on Nov. 10, 1990.
