Deron Williams had a historical night Friday against the Washington Wizards, setting three records in the process.
After just one quarter of play, Williams set the Brooklyn Nets' franchise record for most three-pointers in a quarter by making all seven of his attempts.
Williams proceeded to make two more three-pointers to close the half with nine total. In doing so, Williams set a new NBA record for three-pointers made in the first half of a game.
Washington made defensive adjustments in the locker room at the half and routinely double-teamed Williams, trapping him before any pick-and-roll plays could develop.
Williams finished the game with 11 three-pointers, which set a Nets' franchise record.
“I definitely got hot, especially in that first half,” said Williams. I just found myself really open. They were helping off me and going under on screens. I hit the first couple and those shots, when they leave your hand, they feel like they’re good, so I just kept shooting.”
Kobe Bryant and Donyell Marshall share the NBA record for three-pointers in a game with 12.
