D'Angelo Russell is on pace to score 96 points tonight.

OK, that probably won't happen, but the former Ohio State guard did have 24 points in the first quarter – which, as you might expect, is his career-high for a single quarter – on 7-of-7 shooting from 3-point range in the Brooklyn Nets' game against the Toronto Raptors (who currently lead the NBA's Eastern Conference standings) on Tuesday night.

Highlights of his first-quarter performance, from the Nets' official Twitter account, can be seen below:

According to ESPN Stats and Info, Russell's seven threes tied for the most in any quarter by an NBA player this season and are tied for the fifth-most by any player in a quarter in NBA history.

Russell's current career-high in points for an NBA game is 40, scored last March while playing for the Los Angeles Lakers against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
