While Thompson's father, Mychal, was busy in his broadcast role with the Lakers, Thompson got props from another member of the Warriors' family: Draymond Green's mother.

When you consider that Klay was taken out of the game after breaking the record, it certainly could have been a much bigger night.

The highlights of the performance display an in-sync and supportive team having fun, and it is actually Curry who delivers the assist to Thompson for his 13th 3-pointer, which tied the record.

Klay Thompson popped to the wing off a screen from Stephen Curry, caught the pass from Kevin Durant and dribbled to his left before launching the record 3-pointer.

New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis will return from a two-game absence to play in Wednesday night's game against the Golden State Warriors, head coach Alvin Gentry said.

As reported by ESPN, Curry previously held the record for 13 three-pointers, so at the least title still remains on the same team.
