The Brooklyn Nets were shorthanded Tuesday night when James Harden led them to a 24 point comeback victory over the 17-9 Phoenix Suns. The Suns have been hot lately, winning their last six straight. They starting off extremely hot, ending the half with 75-54 half. The Brooklyn Nets had a jaw-dropping fourth quarter, where they scored 40 points led by James Harden as a team to comeback and win 128-124. James Harden hit a go-ahead three ball to put them up at the end of the game, showing why Brooklyn wanted him so bad.
This is a tough loss for the Suns, who wanted to win this game with the Brooklyn Nets missing Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant because of injuries. The fact that James Harden led a team with no depth but it’s superstars to score 120+ is impressive to me. Harden finished with 37 points and 11 assists. When Kyrie and KD get back this team is only gonna get scarier, but the question is are they gonna defend? They’re almost last in defensive rating in the entire NBA.
