The Jazz had already set an NBA record with 248 made three-pointers as a team through their first 15 games, and the Warriors were unable to hold back the barrage as the Jazz connected for 20 more tonight.

But Utah opened the game 4-for-4 on three-pointers and went up 14-0 on the Warriors quickly, then continued to pour it on from there.
