One night, it’s Kevin Durant climbing up the NBA’s all-time scoring leaderboard. The next, James Harden is breaking another Brooklyn Nets franchise record. Saturday was an example of the latter as the Nets knocked off the Golden State Warriors 134-117 in Durant’s return to the Bay Area.

Kyrie Irving led the Nets with 23 points and Durant was right behind him with 20, while Harden had 19. The department in which Harden stood out was facilitating. The guard dished out 16 assists in the win, setting a record for the Nets’ Brooklyn chapter.

Harden’s 16 assists in the win are the most by a Net player since March 30, 2012, when Deron Williams had 20 in New Jersey’s win over, oddly enough, the Warriors.

Harden also led the Nets with eight rebounds, with Bruce Brown (18 points) finishing right behind the star guard with seven boards of his own.
