The Washington State Cougars’ all-time greatest player on the hardwood, Klay Thompson, added to his legacy on Monday night when he set a new NBA record with 14 three pointers in one game. He broke teammate Steph Curry’s record in just 27 minutes. He ended up scoring 52 points in a little over half a game in the 149-124 Golden State Warriors’ win. Talk about efficient!

This is the second time that Klay has scored over 50 points in less than 30 minutes of playing time, a feat that has been accomplished by exactly zero other players in NBA history. He dropped 60 points in 29 minutes in 2016. Klay is known for accomplishing feats that are unheard of, such as scoring 37 points in one quarter in 2015 and hitting 11 triples in a Western Conference Finals game against the Oklahoma City Zombie Sonics.

To celebrate this feat, Klay dressed up as Will Ferrell’s character Jackie Moon from his ABA movie Semi-Pro.

He really is just the best.
