Houston Rockets forward Chandler Parsons was a man possessed Friday from beyond the arc.
The former Gator and 2011 SEC Player of the Year set an NBA record for three-pointers made in one half, and a franchise record for the most in a single game.
Parsons knocked down 10 of 11 attempts against Memphis in the second half after going 0-for-3 from long range in the first two quarters.
He finished with a career-high 34 points in an 88-87 loss to the Grizzlies.
“I was pretty much unconscious. My body went numb,” Parsons said after the game. “I’ve never felt that feeling on a basketball court before.”
The previous record was held by Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams, who last season hit nine 3-pointers in a half.
Friday was the second 30-point performance from Parsons this week. He scored 31 and grabbed 10 rebounds in Monday’s 126-113 victory over Portland.
