Deron Williams broke a NBA-record on Friday night by hitting nine three-pointers in the first half of Brooklyn's 95-78 victory over the Washington Wizards.

Williams would finish with 42 points with 11 shots falling from distance out of 16 attempts. His 33 first-half points matched the Wizards effort as a team in the first half. Williams added five assists and three rebounds to his record-setting night.

The Nets point guard came out of the gates on fire, swishing home eight consecutive triples before missing on his ninth attempt. Williams would fall one three-pointer away from a share of the NBA record for most three-pointers in a game. Williams netted two more 3s to his tally in the second half to bring his total to 11 for the game.
