The Brooklyn Nets took over the leadership of the East Conference of the North American basketball league this morning, with a 120-108 victory over the Houston Rockets, penultimate in the West.
With a double-double of 31 points and 12 assists, Kyrie Irving was the biggest figure of the Nets, who also had Joe Harris highlighted, as the second best scorer in the game, with 28 points.
James Harden’s new encounter with the old team was marked by his injury injury, in the hamstrings of one leg, which motivated him not to return to the fourth period of play.
In other meetings, Devin Booker’s 45 points in the Phoenix Suns’ victory against the Chicago Bulls, by 121-116, at the Talking Stick Resort Arena, stands out.
