HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Tuesday night’s Rockets vs. Warriors game was one for the record books. The Rockets tied an NBA record and set a franchise mark with 23 3-pointers as they won against Golden State, 140-109.

While shattering the franchise mark, the Rockets tied the NBA single-game record for most triples and did so with 3:41 left to play in regulation. It was Donatas Motiejunas who added their 23rd three-pointer of the game.

The NBA sent a tweet marking the achievement:

Previously, it was the Orlando Magic who held the previous record with 23 three-point shots back in 2009 during a 139-107 triumph over the Sacramento Kings in Sacramento.

Jeremy Lin scored 28 points during Tuesday’s game while James Harden added 18 and Chandler Parsons scored 16 for Houston. Carlos Delfino did not play in Tuesday’s game due to an elbow injury.

For Golden State, Jarrett Jack scored 20 points and David Lee had 18.  Houston was also able to halt Golden State’s leading scorer Tuesday by limiting Stephen Curry to seven points on 3-for-12 shooting.
