Rockets’ Chandler Parsons sets NBA record with 10 three-pointers made in a half (VIDEO)

Jan 25, 2014, 2:00 PM EST

The Rockets dropped a close one at home to the Grizzlies on Friday, but it certainly wasn’t for a lack of trying on the part of Chandler Parsons.

Parsons scored 30 points in the second half, thanks to making an NBA record 10 three-pointers on 11 tries, all of which can be seen in the video clip above. Predictably, Parsons said afterward it was a surreal experience.

From Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle:

With 10, Parsons made more than any Rocket has in a game, more than any NBA player has in a half. He made more consecutively without a miss than any Rocket has in one game, more than the rest of the Rockets and Memphis Grizzlies had combined Friday night. …

“I was pretty much unconscious,” Parsons said. “My body went numb. I never felt that feeling on a basketball court before. It was a lot of fun. I felt like anything I would throw up there would go in. It felt extremely good.”

Incredible shooting from Parsons, and it’s a shame he couldn’t get any help from his teammates — James Harden went 2-of-11 from the field, Patrick Beverley was just 1-of-11, and Dwight Howard managed only 11 points in a game Houston dropped by a final of 88-87.

    To make 10 in a game is great, 10 in a half amazing, but 10 in a row in a single game? Just unreal.

    Unfortunate for him that Dwight was in foul trouble and Harden couldn’t get his flop game going (refs weren’t buying it), so it was all for naught.
