Houston tied the NBA record for 3s, but Golden State didn't let them break it

Troll king. - Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Mark Jackson will troll an entire arena while down 30 points. He doesn't care.

After draining 14 of 18 three-pointers in the first half, the Rockets appeared well on pace to break some records against the Warriors. And indeed, in blowing out Golden State 140-109, Houston blasted right through the franchise high for three-pointers (17) and set the record for points scored at the Toyota Center with 140. With 3:41 remaining and garbage time in full effect, Donatas Motiejunas drained Houston's 23rd three, tying the all-time NBA record.

Houston had plenty of time to make history, but Mark Jackson's Warriors would have none of it. First they watched the Rockets -- clearly gunning for the record -- miss a couple of eager heaves while the crowd rained down chants of "ONE MORE THREE!"

When Patrick Beverley drove the lane, threw down a big dunk, and celebrated a little too demonstratively for a guy whose team was up 30, the Warriors finally snapped. First Draymond Green got ejected for a hard hit on Beverley, then Jackson engaged a troll job for the ages.

On Houston's last few possessions, the Warriors assured there would be no more threes. Jackson knew full well the Rockets were hunting for the record, so he had his guys commit intentional fouls to prevent Rockets from even attempting to break the record. It worked. Houston couldn't even pull a three-pointer in the final 1:58 and finished the game with 23 threes, tying the mark set by the Orlando Magic in 2009.

Well trolled, Coach Jackson. Good to see you've still got some pride down 30-plus points.
