NBC Sports Bay Area: "Thompson scored 22 points in the first quarter, 36 for the half and 52 points in a total of 27 minutes".

Host Milwaukee held Toronto without a field goal for the first 4:11 of the second quarter, establishing an early lead before pulling away in a battle of unbeaten teams missing their leading scorers. With little intrigue surrounding the final score in Warriors games this season, Curry will have something to fight for with his single-game 3-point record broken.

"The disappointing thing is the lack of edge we played with to allow them to get comfortable and get confidence and get going", Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said.

"I know the uptick isn't that great, but what goes with the teams shooting so many threes is it spreads your defense out", Nets Coach Kenny Atkinson said.

The Warriors, heavy favorites to win yet another NBA Championship this season, improved to 7-1 this season.

"We're six games in".

With that, the 28-year-old shooting guard broke an National Basketball Association record previously held by teammate Stephen Curry for the most 3-pointers in a game and the Warriors improved to 7-1.

Ben Simmons scored 21 points to lead seven Philadelphia players in double figures in a rout of visiting Atlanta.

Thompson was hit six 3s in the opening quarter. "I thought that the guys really made a second push".

Kerr will be hoping that this Curry-Durant comfort zone continues, and the Warriors have a chance to extend their winning run against the Chicago Bulls on Monday before returning to California for matches against the New Orleans Pelicans and the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday and Friday.

Curry's shooting ability was a sight to behold in the first half, as he tallied 24 points and sank five of his eight shots from deep.

By the time the second half rolled around, the Warriors were determined to see him set the mark.

Durant was glad it was him.

Curry, responsible for 35 points in the win, put together a PlayStation performance by sinking seven of his 15 shots from range. He also missed two in a row last week because of a bruised left knee.

The Knicks learned that the hard way in the fourth quarter of their 28-point loss on Friday, when Kevin Durant had 25 of his game-high 41 points. He was waived by the New York Knicks with two years and $37.8 million remaining on his contract on October 13.
