Golden State Warriors guard/forward Klay Thompson scored 44 points (17-of-20 field goals) with 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 block, 10 3-pointers, and 2 turnovers in 26.9 minutes of a 130-111 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday.

What It Means:

Thompson scored 23 points in the third quarter alone and tied an NBA record by making his first 10 attempts from beyond the arc. It was also his third career game with 40-plus points in less than 30 minutes. No other player has done that more than once since the shot clock was introduced in 1954. Over the last five, Klay is averaging 24.4 points and 4.2 triples on 55.7 percent from the field and 50.0 percent from distance, compared to 22.1 points (46.4%) and 2.9 threes (38.2%) for the season. The Warriors visit the Washington Wizards on Thursday.

Klay finished with 51.6 FanDuel points in the win. He's averaging 34.2 FanDuel points through 47 games this season.
