New Jersey Nets point guard Deron Williams went off against the Charlotte Bobcats on Sunday, scoring a career-high 57 points to help New Jersey secure a road win.

57 points in Charlotte? Hmm, sounds familiar, no?

Of course, Indiana Pacers legend and soon-to-be Hall of Famer, Reggie Miller also scored a career-high 57 points in a game at Charlotte against the Hornets in 1992.

But the similarities don't end there. Check out the comparison of the two stat lines compiled nearly 20 years apart:

  • Both players made 16 of 29 shots from the field for the game
  • Both players made 4 of 11 shots from behind the arc
  • Both players made 21 free throws (Reggie missed two FTAs, Deron made all 21 FTAs)
  • Reggie has 8 assists and 5 rebounds, Deron had 7 assists and 6 rebounds

After the jump, check out Reggie's performance with all 57 points and post-game interview. A young and excitable Clark Kellogg makes the video even better as he and Jerry Baker call all 57 points. Truly a treasure from the past.
