While James Harden’s Monday heroics against the Miami Heat were nothing to sneeze at––10 crunchtime points in an ultra-tight nail-biter––it was Brooklyn’s top-notch spacing that gave “The Beard” room to cook and do the mean things that James Harden tends to do against defenses.

In fact, there’s a chance that by unleashing the isolation king himself, Brooklyn may have stumbled upon its championship recipe. Harden surrounded by a specific alignment of shooters proved to be fruitful on the back-end of the weekend mini-series.

In this video, we discuss how and where Brooklyn’s players were spaced against the HEAT, why it worked, with a feature from a Steve Nash answer to a NetsDaily question!

And hopefully, we’ll see Nash utilize this magical formula again on Wednesday when the Nets take on the high-voltage 9-8 Atlanta Hawks for the first of three road games.
