Deron Williams had a record-setting game on Friday. The Brooklyn Nets point guard made an NBA record nine 3-pointers in one half, and he finished with a franchise-record 11 3-pointers in his team’s 95-78 win over the Washington Wizards at Barclays Center.
Williams scored a season-high 42 points on 15-for-24 shooting, including 11-of-16 behind the arc. He even made his first eight threes.
D-Will has been particularly hot from beyond the arc recently. He made 49 percent of his threes in February, and he was 7-of-17 (.412) in three games this month prior to Friday’s explosion.
How hot was he?
“Hot like fish grease,” teammate Reggie Evans told the NY Daily News’ Stefan Bondy.
