Klay Thompson shows off range as Warriors overtake Bulls

Klay Thompson returned to the site of his record-setting 3-point performance and turned in another dazzling long-range show, leading the undermanned Golden State Warriors to a 140-131 win over the host Chicago Bulls on Friday.

Thompson, who set the NBA record with 14 3-pointers in a 2018 visit to Chicago, shot 7-for-15 from beyond the arc en route to a team-high 30 points.

Golden State’s Stephen Curry saved 15 of his 27 points for the final 6:05.

The Bulls took a 13-point halftime lead on the strength of a 45-point second quarter. The Warriors then exploded to a 15-point advantage with a 48-point third period, as Thompson went 5-for-5 from beyond the arc in the period.

Golden State went up 122-110 when Curry began his late barrage with a 3-pointer.

Shooting for a fourth straight win, the Bulls got within 128-124 with 2:57 left, but Thompson buried his seventh 3-pointer of the game and Curry his sixth over a 44-second surge that broke the game open and allowed Golden State to snap a two-game losing streak.

The Warriors won despite getting outshot 58.1 percent to 52.1 percent, but Golden State did have two more 3-pointers than Chicago, 20-18.

Curry shot 6-for-15 from 3-point range and added a game-high nine assists.

Jonathan Kuminga chipped in with 24 points for Golden State, while Andrew Wiggins had 17, Trayce Jackson-Davis 13 and Dario Saric 12. Jackson-Davis and Saric shared team-high rebounding honors with seven apiece, while Wiggins had eight assists.

DeMar DeRozan paced the Bulls with a game-high 39 points, 11 of which came in a second quarter during which Chicago outscored the guests 45-29.

Coby White and Zach LaVine backed DeRozan with 25 points and seven assists apiece, while Nikola Vucevic had 14 points to go with seven rebounds.

LaVine also found time for a game-high eight rebounds.
