James Harden spearheaded the biggest half-time comeback in franchise history, scoring 38 points and the short-handed Brooklyn Nets rallied to stun the Phoenix Suns 128-124 on Tuesday.
Harden caught fire late as the Nets stormed back from a 21-point half-time deficit to snap the Suns’ season-best win streak at six NBA games. The Nets trailed by as much as 24 points.
Harden added 11 assists, Joe Harris scored 22 points and Jeff Green scored 18 points off for the Nets, who won their fourth consecutive game despite playing without Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.
Durant missed his second-consecutive game with a hamstring injury and Irving is bothered by a sore back.
