James Harden inspires Brooklyn Nets to win against Phoenix Suns

James Harden scores 38 to lead Brooklyn's comeback win

James Harden inspired the biggest half-time comeback in the history of the Brooklyn Nets as they recovered a 21-point deficit to beat the Phoenix Suns 128-124.

Harden scored 38 points for the Nets, who were without the injured Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant.

“We had nothing to lose but to fight back,” said Nets coach Steve Nash.

“We took advantage of outstanding defence in our own end and James made some big shots.”

LeBron James scored 30 points to help the Los Angeles Lakers, who were without the injured Anthony Davis, beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 112-104.

Davis is expected to be out for several weeks after suffering an Achilles injury against Denver on Sunday.

“We’re not expecting one person to try to pick up AD’s productivity. Nobody’s going to be able to do that. He just brings too much to the table. But we all can do more,” said James.

The Lakers are one of the NBA’s best road teams this season, with their victory in Minneapolis making it 13 wins from 16 games away from Los Angeles.
