James Harden explodes for 39, has Brooklyn Nets’ confidence ‘through the roof’ with Kevin Durant nearing return

James Harden’s big night for the Brooklyn Nets started with a couple of step-back 3-pointers, but it was the burst in his step and explosion in his drives that really opened eyes on Monday night. In his second match back from the NBA’s health and safety protocols, a fresh Harden continued his dominant play of late with 39 points, 15 assists and 8 rebounds to lead the Nets to a 124-108 victory over the depleted LA Clippers.

Kevin Durant carries Nets to OT win as Brooklyn’s COVID-19 protocols list grows to seven, including James Harden

After a whirlwind day that saw the Brooklyn Nets lose six players to the NBA’s health and safety protocols — including James Harden and Bruce Brown within an hour of tipoff before an eventual 131-129 overtime victory versus the Toronto Raptors — coach Steve Nash stated he briefly wasn’t sure Tuesday night’s game would be played at all. With seven Nets players entering the NBA’s health and safety protocols in the preceding 24 hours, Brooklyn would not have had the required eight available to play versus Toronto had star forward Kevin Durant, who was questionable due to right ankle soreness, been unable to go. “We had to debate it,” Nash said.
