Stephen Curry set another National Basketball Association record by making seven 3-pointers and finished with 35 points as the Golden State Warriors held on to beat the Brooklyn Nets 120-114 on Sunday.

The Warriors scored 92 points in the first half - the most ever by a road team and the second most of all time behind the Phoenix Suns, who had 107 in the first half against the Denver Nuggets on November 19, 1990.

But Klay Thompson continued to struggle behind the arc, going 1 for 5 and falling to 5 for 36 this season. He smashed Stephen Curry's single-game record for 3-pointers in the process when he drained his 14th triple in the third quarter.

The Bucks were missing Greek star Giannis Antetokounmpo, who was placed in the NBA's concussion protocol earlier Monday after suffering a blow to the head against Orlando at the weekend.

Thompson nailed his first three 3-pointers and made six while scoring 22 in the first quarter. It's only fitting that those two hold the records, hold the most three-point shots in a game.

His effort helped Denver remain unbeaten in four home games this season.

Julius Randle had 24 points and eight rebounds and Nikola Mirotic had a double-double with 17 points and 10 rebounds for New Orleans, which hung tough despite not having Anthony Davis (elbow). He scored 51 points in that victory. Quinn Cook also had 14 points off the bench.

"It's unacceptable to start the game like that, especially against the defending champs", LaVine said of a deficit that reached 45 points. Kent Bazemore led the Hawks with 18 points while Trae Young, Omari Spellman and Dewayne Dedmon added 11 each. Of course, so do Curry's and Durant's, and both are averaging more than 30 points.

DeRozan outdueled Mavericks rookie Luka Doncic, who scored a career-high 31 points.

The Bulls allowed the fifth-most points in team history and the most ever in a home game.

Seven three-pointers from the sharp-shooting Curry gave him at least five three-pointers in the Warriors' seven games this season, breaking George McCloud's record of six games in a row during the 1995/96 season.

Hardaway led all scorers with 25 points while Enes Kanter recorded a double-double with 15 points and 15 rebounds.

"They got hot in the fourth to try to make it interesting, but (we) made enough plays down the stretch to obviously get the win", Curry said.
