DEC 17, 2013 12:53a ET
Johnson scored 29 points in the third quarter of the Nets' 130-94 win over the Philadelphia 76ers. He tied the NBA record for three-pointers in a quarter, eight, set by Michael Redd of the Milwaukee Bucks. Johnson didn't set the league record for most points in a quarter, though. That's 33, by George "Iceman" Gervin of the San Antonio Spurs.
Johnson finished with 37 points, going 10 of 14 on threes for the game, including 8 of 10 in his momentous quarter.
And he did it in front of Paul McCartney.
