A lot of Nets players pitched in on Wednesday, and Brooklyn needed help from everyone, being short-handed against the New York Knicks in the wake of the James Harden trade. While it was a team effort, Kevin Durant led the way as the Nets beat the Knicks, 116-109, at Madison Square Garden.

Brooklyn’s star forward finished with 26 points, six boards and three assists, setting a franchise record in the process. Durant has eclipsed the 20-point mark through his first nine games as a member of the Nets — which is a franchise record for consecutive 20-point games to begin a season.

Additionally, by eclipsing 25 points in the win, Durant tied the franchise record for consecutive 25-plus point performances at eight games in a row — a record set by Bernard King back in 1978-79.

Through his first nine games with the Nets, Durant is averaging 29.4 points per game on 53.7% shooting (46.2% from 3-point territory).
