Chandler Parsons hits NBA-record 10 threes in a half

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Chandler Parsons was on fire over the final 24 minutes Friday night against the Grizzlies.

Houston Rockets wing Chandler Parsons broke an NBA record Friday night with 10 three-pointers in a half. The University of Florida alum didn't hit a single long ball in the first 24 minutes against the Grizzlies, but knocked down 10 in the second half, giving the Rockets at least a chance to win late.

The hot shooting came out of nowhere, but Parsons hit all six of his long range attempts in the third quarter and 4-of-5 in the fourth quarter. His last make came with 1:51 left to play and brought the Rockets within one point, 88-87. That was, however, the final score as his last attempt -- a 30-footer with just over a minute left -- fell short.

Neither team scored for the remainder of the game and Memphis snuck out with a victory, but it was Parsons who stole the show with his incredible hot streak in the second half. His shot chart is a thing of beauty:

In all, Parsons recorded a career-high 34 points. Quite a performance from Houston's sharp-shooter.
