With Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant out injured, James Harden stepped up for the Brooklyn Nets, who came from down 24 to beat the Suns 128-124.

Harden hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 29.8 second remaining. Brooklyn got a stop on defense and he then hit two clutch free throws to ice the game. He finished with 38 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds.

Joe Harris and Tyler Johnson both stepped up, combining for 39 points, with two of Brooklyn’s three stars out.

The Nets have now won four games in a row and have the second best record in the Eastern Conference. Their next game is Thursday night against the Lakers. Anthony Davis will be out for the Lakers and it remains unclear if Durant or Irving will play for the Nets.
