Stephen Curry was pretty pumped to see his record broken on Monday.

Fellow "Splash Brother" Klay Thompson surpassed Curry's mark of 13 3-pointers in a single game with 14 in a blowout win over the Chicago Bulls. Curry shared his excitement for Thompson's 52-point game in an Instagram story. 

Thompson may not have broken the record without Curry's encouragement. He said after the game that Curry told him at halftime the record was in sight, and that Thompson should "go get it."

"It's great, it might not last for long though," Thompson told NBC Sports Bay Area's Kerith Burke after the game. "[Curry's] a pretty good player, he might do it pretty soon. 

"It's the best feeling, especially to see how happy your teammates are for you. It's all love between us, and these guys have my back at all times. They know what I'm capable of, especially in the first six, seven games when I wasn't really hitting from the 3-point line. And to come out like this, I give all the credit to them because they were trying to find me as much as they could."

 

Thompson didn't find his teammates as much as he could, however, as he finished the night with zero assists. Chances are the Warriors aren't too upset about that outcome, though.
