Williams shoots Nets past Wizards

 
Tags:nba

Nets guard Deron Williams made an NBA-record nine 3-pointers in the first half, finished with 11 and scored a season-high 42 points to lead host Brooklyn to a 95-78 victory over the Washington Wizards on Friday night. Williams made his first eight shots behind the arc, became the first player in a decade to match the opposing team’s score in the first half, and was one shy of the NBA record of 12 3-pointers as the Nets opened a huge early lead and coasted. He missed from straightaway with 1:08 left in the game, leaving him one shy of the record shared by Kobe Bryant and Donyell Marshall. Williams had four 3-pointers before Washington even made a basket, his fourth giving the Nets a 16-0 lead. – Associated Press
