The Kevin Durant-less Nets blasted the Sacramento Kings to the tune of 136-125 last night as they knocked down a franchise-best 27 threes.
Kyrie Irving was sizzling hot in the game, scoring a season-high 40 points on 15-of-22 shooting from the field and 9-of-11 from three-point range. James Harden recorded a triple-double with 29 points, 13 rebounds and 14 assists.
Despite their good run of form, however, the Phoenix Suns will not be an easy opponent. The Suns have won six consecutive games and nine of their last 10 fixtures heading into Tuesday’s matchup with the Brooklyn Nets.
The Phoenix Suns routed the Orlando Magic 109-90 at home on Sunday, with Devin Booker scoring 27 points on 10-of-16 shooting from the field.
