Klay Thompson entered himself into the record books on Friday night during the Golden State Warriors' impressive 130-112 win against the Dallas Mavericks at the American Airlines Center.

Stephen Curry may be the king of three-pointers at the current NBA Champions, but next in line to the throne is Thompson, as he became the second-fastest active player to reach 1,000 career threes in the regular season last night.

Thompson became the second-fastest active player to reach 1,000 career threes in the regular season when he scored two 3-pointers in the first quarter against the Mavericks.

He was the top scorer on the night with 39 points with 10 three-pointers, and he added six rebounds and two assists.

From those 39 points, 23 of those points came when Curry was off the field. That's quite an achievement.

Speaking of his performance according to ESPN, he said: "Something I just matured into, I think. Not trying to go out there and do it all myself, but realize we got such a deep, talented team that the ball's eventually going to find me if I just stay with it. Don't force it."

Thompson is the 29th active player with at least 1,000 threes in the regular, according to Basketball-Reference.

You could probably guess who is the fastest active player to reach 1,000 career threes in the regular season. That's right, it's Curry. He achieved that goal in 369 games while Thompson has done it in 372 games.
