New Jersey Nets point guard Deron Williams scored 50 points in Besiktas' 105-94 victory over Gottingen as part of EuroChallenge Tuesday.
The Nets point guard went 17-for-23 from the field, knocked down seven of his 10 3-point attempts and connected on nine of his 11 free throw attempts. He also added three rebounds and an assist to his 50-point total in 36 minutes.
"Deron was unstoppable (Tuesday)," Gottingen guard Kyle Bailey said, according to fifbaeurope.com.
Williams notched his NBA career-high 42 points for the Utah Jazz on April 6, 2010, in a victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. He scored 41 for Utah in a loss at Dallas on Dec. 8, 2007.
