While Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker was putting on a clinic against the Detroit Lions on Monday night, Brooklyn Nets shooting guard Joe Johnson was doing the same against the Philadelphia 76ers on the hardwood.
Johnson played like a man possessed in the third quarter, totaling an unfathomable 29 points on 10-of-13 shooting from the field. He hit eight threes alone, tying the NBA record for threes made in one period.
Johnson’s 29-point output fell shy of the record 33 points scored in one quarter. George Gervin set the mark in 1978, and Carmelo Anthony tied it in 2008.
Following is a video highlight of Johnson’s incredible quarter.
Here’s Johnson’s shot chart from the third.
Johnson finished with 37 points on the night, helping lead the Nets to a 130-94 win over the 76ers.
