Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets escaped with a 112-110 victory versus the New York Knicks. KD saved his best for last as he dropped 11 of his 27 points in the fourth quarter. James Harden led Brooklyn in scoring with 34 points of his own.

The three-time Super Bowl champion and Pro Football Hall of Famer, Shannon Sharpe, discusses whether the Nets are the best team in the Eastern Conference:

“No they’re not, but they clearly have the best players. Can the Nets come out of the East? Yes. But I would say Milwaukee has a better chance, even Miami if they can stay healthy.”
