Nets fall to Suns failing yet another early-season litmus test

Fresh off a Thanksgiving eve bludgeoning over the Boston Celtics, the Brooklyn Nets welcomed the Phoenix Suns to town. Arguably the hottest team in basketball, the Suns came into Saturday night’s contest winners of 15 straight games including a resounding win against the Knicks 24 hours prior.

With a modest four-game winning streak of their own, the Nets had a chance to really make a splash with a big early-season win and knock off a streaking Suns team. Unfortunately, that wouldn’t be the case as Phoenix would lead wire to wire for a 113-107 win, completing their Borough Sweep of both the Knicks and Nets.
