(NBA) Johnson nails 76ers in long range barrage
(12-17 14:03)

Joe Johnson drained 10 three-pointers in a 37-point effort that lifted Brooklyn to a 130-94 victory over Philadelphia in a US National Basketball Association game Monday in New York.
Johnson made eight of his three-pointers in the third quarter, matching the NBA record for most in a period set by Milwaukee's Michael Redd in 2002.
He poured in 29 points in the quarter, and sat out the fourth as the Nets had the game in hand.
Andray Blatche scored 20 points and Paul Pierce added 14 off the bench for the Nets.
Deron Williams and Alan Anderson added 13 points apiece and Williams added 13 assists.
James Anderson scored 17 points off the bench and Thaddeus Young added 14 for the 76ers, who lost their seventh straight.
Johnson's 10 three-pointers were the most in a game this season, surpassing the previous season-high of nine achieved by Houston's Jeremy Lin and Golden State's Stephen Curry.—AFP
