IT was a crazy night for numbers in the NBA as teams and players delivered amazing performances around the league.

Two teams both had 80-point halves: the Cleveland Cavaliers scored 81 against the Portland Trailblazers (shooting at 59 percent clip) while the Golden State Warriors had 80 against the Los Angeles Lakers, 57 of which came from their Big 3 of Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson on Wednesday (Thursday, Manila time).

The Dubs shot 62 percent in field goals.

Kevin Love scored the most points in a first quarter in NBA history with 34 against Portland. Love made 8 of 10 from downtown. It's the second-most in a single quarter in league history behind Thompson's 37 last season for the Warriors.

The Dubs also set a franchise record for assists with 47, the most assists by any NBA team since 1991. The current record is 53 by the Milwaukee Bucks in 1978.  

There were also three 40-point performances: Damian Lillard, Kevin Love and Anthony Davis who dominated against the Timberwolves with 45 markers. 

Houston Rockets guard James Harden also recorded his sixth 15-assist game of the season in their loss to the Toronto Raptors.

Playing closer to home has helped former Rockets center Dwight Howard, who grabbed 20 rebounds to go with his 23 points, shooting 10 for 12 in a win by the Atlanta Hawks against the Indiana Pacers.  

Eight players had 30-point performances: Kawhi Leonard, Russell Westbrook, DeMarcus Cousins, LeBron James, Damian Lillard, Kevin Love, Stephen Curry and Anthony Davis all had 30 points or more. Kevin Durant had 28, James Harden 29.
