Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors set an NBA playoff record by dropping an incredible 11 three-pointers during the 108-101 game six victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder last night.
It was a shooting clinic from the shooting gaurd, who is so often in Stephen Curry's shadow, as the All-Star went 11-of-18 from beyond the arc.
However, the 26-year-old Los Angeles-native wasn't satisfied with his night's work despite surpassing the previous playoff record of nine 3-pointers made, which was shared by three-point legend Ray Allen, Vince Carter, Rex Chapman and Jason Terry.

"I should have had at least 13 because I missed some wide-open looks early," Thompson insisted.
His coach Steve Kerr and teammate Curry couldn't quite believe how scolding hot Thompson turned out to be. When a player of his calibre goes off like that, Golden State aren't likely to lose.
"Obviously, Klay Thompson was ridiculous," Golden State coach Steve Kerr said. "I mean, the shooting was some of the most incredible shooting you'll ever see."
Curry said: "All Klay needs is a sliver of daylight. The shots he made tonight were huge, obviously. But they were shots that he had his feet underneath him, and he just had all the confidence in the world. He understood the moment."
However, Thompson claims he was completely oblivious to the record and was simply in the zone during a crucial game.
"I had no idea what the record was," Thompson said. "I didn't even know I had 11 3s. I was just trying to be aggressive, whether that was getting to the rim or getting a good shot from beyond the perimeter."
