In case we were wondering whether it was possible for the Golden State Warriors to take their game a new level, they answered that question in the first half against the Chicago Bulls Monday evening.
With head coach Steve Kerr returning to his roots, the Warriors absolutely dominated through the first two quarters. How much? They put up 92 points heading into the half and held a 42-point lead.
After struggling with his shot through the first seven games, Klay Thompson went off for 36 points. That included 10-of-12 from distance.

Meanwhile, Stephen Curry added 23 first half points. The two outscored Chicago by nine at the intermission.
Needless to say, Twitter had some pretty amazing reactions to this near-flawless performance from the two-time defending champs.

The Warriors are beating the Bulls 92-50 at halftime. How can anyone invest their time in a league where the outcome is so apparent? *continues watching Patriots vs. Bills*

It's 92 at the break for the Warriors(tops for franchise; second most ever in an NBA half; Phoenix 107 v. Denver on Nov. 10, 1990 is 1st), and Klay is back in a pretty predictable way: 36 first-half points and record-tying 10 threes; Warriors NBA record 17 threes. https://t.co/5FNyWZyNKy
