Williams Sets Nets Scoring Record
On Sunday night, D-Will went off — and wound up making history.
Nets point guard Deron Williams scored a single-game franchise-record 57 points in his team’s 104-101 victory over the Bobcats.
Mike Newlin (Dec. 16, 1987) and Ray Williams (Apr. 17, 1982) held the previous record (52). It was the sixth 50-point game in Nets’ franchise history, and the first since Vince Carter had 51 on Dec. 25, 2005.
No other NBA player has scored as many as 57 points this season.
