Harris, Nets Pull Off Another One

New, comments

Not content with a 2-2 trip, Devin Harris and the Nets got their best win yet Sunday in Phoenix. Harris scored a career-high 47 points as the Nets came back to beat the Suns, 117-109. Amare Stoudemire and some hot shooting from Phoenix had the Suns up as many as 12 points early on. The Nets came back and took the lead briefly late in the second quarter, but the Suns quickly answered to take back control. The Nets hung in there though, and down five with just over four minutes to go in the game, went on a 18-5 run to grab their third win of the West Coast swing. Harris shot 14-for-25 from the field and 17-for-17 from the line, while also grabbing seven boards and dishing out eight assists. Vince Carter and Yi Jianlian added 28 and 14 points respectively, while Trenton Hassell provided quality minutes off the bench. Steve Nash led the Suns with 26 and Stoudemire had 25, but left the game with his second technical foul early in the Nets' game-winning run. Shaquille O'Neal finished with nine points and five rebounds. It was the Nets' first win in Phoenix since 1993 and Lawrence Frank's 200th career victory.
