Golden State Warriors Set NBA Record with 51 Points in 1st Quarter

Warriors stars Steph Curry and Kevin Durant ‘sent a message’ says Nuggets coach after loss

The Warriors, ranked second in the Western Conference with a 29-14 record heading into Tuesday's game, scored 51 points in the first quarter against the top-seeded Nuggets. The clinic began early with the Warriors erupting for 51 points in the opening quarter, breaking the old mark of 50 held by several teams.

In addition to making league history in the first quarter, the point total and made 3-pointers were both single-quarter franchise records.

It's not often that a team scores 38 points in the first quarter and finds themselves trailing by double-digits.

Curry hit a trio of 3-pointers and had 11 points and Durant scored five in a 16-5 run that made it 112-83 heading into the fourth quarter.

Everyone is aware that since Durant came to the Warriors, there's essentially no way for either him or Curry to win an MVP award unless one of them leaves.

"When we make shots, we're a tough team to beat", Curry said.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying expressed " strong dissatisfaction" with that. His original sentence was 15 years.

"I kind of feel like they were trying to send us a message". The 76ers had 83 at halftime, second-highest total in the National Basketball Association this season, and Butler wanted more.

Russell Westbrook scored 31 points and dished out 11 assists but the Oklahoma City Thunder fell to the Atlanta Hawks 142-126. The Nuggets narrowed the deficit to just 12 at one point but entered the half down 79-60. "When you see the ball go in like we did tonight, I think it just keeps rolling".

In Indianapolis, the Indiana Pacers led wire-to-wire in a 131-97 victory over the Phoenix Suns. He played all 12 minutes in the frame and tallied 17 points.

Myles Turner, back in action after missing four games with a sore right shoulder, scored 18 points and pulled down six rebounds for the Pacers, who had 20 points apiece from starting forward Bojan Bogdanovic and reserve Tyreke Evans. The result of the game will come later on in the evening, and no matter what ends up happening (in all likelihood), it will not top what Golden State did in the game's first quarter.

Curry finished 8 of 13 and Thompson 5 of 8 from 3-point range.

Although the Thunder put up 41 points in the third quarter to take a three-point lead into the final frame, the Hawks surged back with 45 points in the fourth quarter.
