Brooklyn Nets star shooting guard, Joe Johnson, ripped the basketball nets and set a record of most three pointers in a quarter in the December 16, 2013 game against the Philadelphia 76ers. Johnson sank eight three pointers in the third quarter which led the Nets to a 130-94 victory. He scored 29 points just in that third quarter.
He now shares the record with former Milwaukee Buck NBA player Michael Redd who made his eight three pointers 11 years ago on February 20, 2002.
Johnson had the chance to break the overall NBA record of 12 three pointers in a game which is held by Los Angeles Laker's star Kobe Bryant and retired Philadelphia 76er Donyell Marshall, but he declined to play in the fourth quarter due to battling an illness days before.
In spite of his epic scoring against the 76ers, Johnson almost set another record for his 29 third quarter points which is four shy of the NBA record of 33 points in a single quarter owned by Basketball Hall of Famer George "Iceman" Gervin and New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony.
If Johnson can keep putting up points like this, he will be more than a man on a mission, he will be the man on fire.
