As the Suns won their 16th straight and swept their way through New York to set up a monster showdown with Golden State, Brooklyn’s James Harden admitted he’s having trouble finding balance between scoring and distributing without Kyrie Irving espn.com/nba/story/_/id…1:20 AM

The Phoenix Suns played their best basketball of the season so far on a back-to-back across the country that wrapped up a four-game road trip, a stretch of 15 games in 26 days and kept their winning streak alive that now sits at 16.

It’s crazy that the Jazz have played exactly one great game this season and are tied for the fourth best record in the league….but against the backdrop of what Phoenix and Golden State are doing, it’s clear this team still needs to play several levels better with consistency – 11:30 PM

Final: Suns beat the Nets 113-107. Weird game. Phoenix looked in control for most of the game until they didn’t. But Nets bug themselves too deep of a hole. DeAndre’ Bembry played great. Kevin Durant did, too. James Harden struggled. Another loss to a contender. – 9:49 PM

Kevin Durant (12 PTS, 4 REBS), DeAndre’ Bembry (10 PTS) & the Nets are recovering well after from a slow start. Though, the job is not finished. Brooklyn’s bench has to step up, scoring only 6 points is not going to help their case. – 8:40 PM

Suns take a 56-46 lead over the Nets into halftime. Nets woke up from the itis midway through the 2nd quarter, but against elite teams, this is way too much rope. Kevin Durant and DeAndre’ Bembry stood out during BKN’s 13-0 run, but 15 turnovers have crushed the Nets so far. – 8:33 PM

Timeout, Steve Nash: Terrible basketball being played by the Nets, as has been the case against the legitimate contenders. The Suns are in the 2nd game of a back-to-back, yet the Nets look like they’re the team with dead legs.

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
The Nets are honestly lucky to only be down 14 the way they played. Suns lead, 34-20, after a hot quarter for Devin Booker, who has 16 points on 5/9 FG. Nets shooting just 14.3% from downtown, generally a marker for how they perform in a game. 3 more quarters, but ugly to start. – 8:06 PM

Very sharp start by the Suns, who lead the Nets 34-20 after one. Booker was in double figures before Durant even scored and has 16 points. – 8:06 PM

End of the first quarter: Suns lead the Nets 34-20. Suns giving the Nets a course in title contention. They get into their actions early, are disruptive defensively and the continuity is obvious. Nets have had some passes where the receiver wasn’t even expecting it. – 8:05 PM

Nets coach Steve Nash, of course, was the star of the Suns’ 2006-07 team that won 15 games in a row and then started a streak of a franchise-record 17 straight less than two weeks later. Phoenix went 33-2 across 35 games in that stretch and won 61 games that year. – 5:56 PM
