Warriors guard Klay Thompson set a playoff record with 11 threes in Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals against the Thunder.

To set the record with 10, Thompson pulled up from deep with just under five minutes to go in the game and buried the shot over Russell Westbrook to bring the Warriors within four at the time.

It was his 10th hit in 16 attempts, and gave him 36 points on the night to go along with three rebounds. Thompson finished with a game-high 41 points and four boards.
