Guard James Harden led the New Yorkers, with 23 points, nine rebounds and 12 assists, to prop up the victory for 17 of his team with only seven losses.

This victory is the third in the last four meetings for Brooklyn, which keeps them first in the sector with a difference of half a game over the Chicago Bulls, with an equal number of successes (17) with one more loss (8).

For the losers, power forward Dorian Finney-Smith compiled 38 points and joined Luka Doncic with 37, but both efforts were insufficient to defeat the Nets.

In the other two results of the day, the New York Knicks beat the San Antonio Spurs 121-109, with offensive highlights for EJ Barnett, with 32 points for the Knicks; while Derrick White was the best among those defeated, with 26.

Similarly, the Los Angeles beat the Boston by a wide 117-102 margin, in a duel in which LeBron James commanded the local offense, with 24 cards; and Jason Tatun for the Celtics, with 34.
