Watch Joe Johnson drop 29 points on the Sixers — in the third quarter (VIDEO)

Dec 17, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

That’s as hot as you are ever going to see a player.

In the fourth quarter Joe Johnson put up 29 points including tying the NBA record for threes in a quarter with eight. He just couldn’t miss, it was a thing of beauty.

Yes, it still counts if you do it against the Sixers defense. Johnson is one of the best scorers in the game today and occasionally just goes off and reminds everyone of that.

    What were his field goals made vs. attempted in the quarter?

      Considering he only scored another 8 points in the other 3 quarters, not good is my guess since I don’t really care enough to look it up. Scoring 29 points with 8 three pointers in a quarter is putting on one heck of a show for the fans. Can’t hate on that.

        shanelsweet – Whether he scored 8 or 80 in the other qtrs how would that even go into your reasoning of his fgm vs fga being good or not good? That makes absolutely no sense.

        basketballhooper1 – He was 11 of 14 in the 3rd qtr and 13 of 20 overall.

    Since when is Joe Johnson one of the best scorers in the game?

      He’s still a good player he’s just not worth anywhere near what he’s getting paid.

    The headline says he scored 29 points in the 3rd qtr and the 2nd line of the article says he scored 29 in the 4th qtr so either Joe Johnson scored at least 58 points in the game or we should all know who wrote this article without even looking.
