NBA -- D-Will's 3-point barrage powers Nets


PhilBoxing.com




BROOKLYN -- It was a record breaking Friday night here at the Barclays Center as Deron Williams and the Brooklyn Nets defeated the hapless Washington Wizards 95-78.

The NBA record for most 3-pointers in a half fell when D-Will dropped nine of them in the first half, going 7-7 in the first quarter alone, en route to a game high 42 points.

It was evident from the start that the Wizards were in for a long evening as Brooklyn raced out to a 16-0 lead and never looked back. The Nets star guard was simply unconscious during the initial quarter as he single-handedly outscored the Wizards 21-15, giving Brooklyn a 38-14 lead they would not relinquish.

Williams continued his barrage in the second quarter as he dropped ten more points including two more 3s that would break the record formerly held by several players including Kobe Bryant and Ray Allen. D-Will would go on to drop two more 3s in the second half for a total of 11, breaking Vince Carter's franchise record of nine.

Commenting on his performance, Williams said, "I just got hot, you know, it's just one of those games where you come out and hit a couple of shots and you start feeling good and you just keep doing it."

At the half Williams scoring output was even with the entire Washington team, 33-33. The last player to score equal to or more than the opponents entire team was Orlando's Tracy McGrady back in March 9th, 2003 against the Denver Nuggets.

In the second half, the Wizards stepped up their defense and managed to slow down Williams with double teams. As the Nets struggled in the third, the Wizards were able to gain some ground outscoring Brooklyn 25-15 in the quarter. In the fourth, the Wizards would eventually trim Brooklyn lead to 13, but a crucial traveling call on Washington guard AJ Price nullified a three pointer that would have cut the Nets lead to ten ending their momentum and any hopes of a comeback.

Also having a career night was Nets forward Reggie Evans. Fan favorite Evans was a man amongst men, as he scored 11 points and grabbed a career high 24 rebounds helping the Nets to a 61-44 advantage on the glass. While Williams garnered the spotlight this evening, Evans might have drawn the loudest cheers. With Brooklyn leading late in the fourth, the Wizards instituted a "Hack-a-Reggie" strategy, hoping to take advantage of the forwards' charity stripe struggles.

And struggled he did. Evans went 3-10 including missing five attempts in a row along including an air ball. With each attempt, the crowd grew louder and more supportive and cheers of "Reggie", "Reggie", echoed through the arena. The arena erupted when Evans nailed his last two free throws and the Nets closed out the Wizards sending their fans home with a smile.
