Brooklyn, NY (Sports Network) - Deron Williams had a first quarter to remember and finished with a Nets record 11 3-pointers, as Brooklyn cruised past the Washington Wizards, 95-78, at Barclays Center.

Williams set an NBA record with nine 3-pointers in the first half, including a 7-for-7 effort in the game's first eight minutes.

Behind Williams' 42-point effort, the Nets led by as many as 27 and ended a three-game skid at home with relative ease despite scoring just 36 points in the second half.

Reggie Evans pulled down a career-high 24 rebounds and, along with Brook Lopez, was Brooklyn's next highest scorer with 11 points.

The Wizards have dropped two in a row since star rookie Bradley Beal went down with an ankle injury. Unlike Williams, they were 3-of-17 from behind the arc and shot 36 percent overall. John Wall led the way with 16 points, while Nene and Kevin Seraphin chipped in 11 apiece in the setback.
