The Golden State Warriors put on a show Tuesday night against the Chicago Bulls in their 149-124 win, scoring 92 points in the first half, thanks largely to the unconscious shooting of Klay Thompson.

Thompson, who had been struggling with his three-point shot entering this game, went Super Saiyan in the first half, draining 10 three-pointers for 36 points and didn't let up after the break, finishing with 52 points in 26 total minutes. Yikes!

He finished with 14 triples on 24 attempts, breaking the previous record held by the other Splash Brother, Steph Curry.

Watch his epic performance from three below:

Curry cheered on Thompson as he lit up from deep and was the first person to congratulate him, even if it came at the expense of one of his records.

Even LeBron James took to Twitter to congratulate Thompson

Thompson's former Warriors teammates have seen it all before, but even they couldn't quite believe it, chiming in along with the rest of the NBA as they watched history unfold.

The rest of the league was just as impressed
