Nets Blow Out Sixers Behind Johnson’s 10 Threes

Joe Johnson made 10 3-pointers, most in the NBA this season, and scored a season-high 37 points to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a 130-94 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night.

Johnson finished 10 for 14 from behind the arc, including 8 of 10 during an incredible third-quarter shooting performance. He passed the nine 3-pointers made this season by Jeremy Lin, who also did it against the inept 76ers perimeter defense, and Stephen Curry.

Johnson scored 29 points in the third, his most in any quarter in his career.

Deron Williams had 13 points and 13 assists for the Nets, who led by as many as 42 and won for the fourth time in five games.
