Kevin Durant led the Nets with 32 points in their 132-128 overtime win against the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday, but it was James Harden who truly went off for Brooklyn. The guard scored 31 points on 9-for-20 shooting, drilling five of his nine 3-point attempts, while dishing out 15 assists and grabbing eight rebounds in 46 minutes of action.

By reaching both the 30-point and 15-assist mark in the win against Atlanta, Harden became the first player in franchise history to reach those marks in the same game since Stephon Marbury scored 34 points and dished out 15 assists for New Jersey in a 122-120 win over the Detroit Pistons on January 20, 2000.

But Harden’s rebound total separated him from Marbury — along with every other player to ever wear a Nets uniform. On Wednesday, Harden became the first Nets player to ever record 30-plus points, eight-plus rebounds and 15-plus assists in a game.
