Thompson entered Monday's contest 5-36 from three in 2018-19. 

Klay Thompson set the NBA record for most made three-pointers in one game on Monday night, erupting with 14 threes against the Bulls. Thompson surpassed teammate Steph Curry's record of 13 triples, set in Nov. 2016. 

The four-time All-Star buried his 14th triple midway through the third quarter. He scored 36 in the first half, leading Golden State to the second-most first-half points in NBA history. 

Thompson entered Monday night's game at the United Center in Chicago on a relative cold streak. He had made just five of 36 threes on the season despite shooting a career 41.9% from beyond the arc.
