Deron Williams catches fire, breaks the NBA record for three-pointers made in one half

Despite their reputation as lottery-bound former knuckleheads, the Washington Wizards are actually a very formidable defensive team – ranking sixth out of 30 NBA teams in defensive efficiency entering Friday night. And despite his reputation as an all-around offensive marvel, Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams entered Friday shooting right around the league average on three-pointers, the first time he’s hit that mark since the 2009-10 season.

This is why it was remarkable to watch Deron hit the mark, over and over again, from three-point land on Friday night.
