Nets PG D'Angelo Russell led the team's comeback in their 98-92 win Monday that broke a four-game losing streak. 

The Nets had gotten out to an early lead, but eventually blew it when the Suns went up 75-74 in the fourth. However, Russell went on a tear that helped solidified not only a much-needed win to break their losing skid, but the Nets' first road win of the season. 

"It wasn't the prettiest game ever played in the NBA. It was a lot of tugging and clawing, a lot of fouls, but we found a way," head coach Kenny Atkinson told The Post's Brian Lewis. "It was a good sign of growth for our team."

The Nets roster is ready to go from worst in the league to playoff contender this season, but GM Sean Marks and head coach Kenny Atkinson are only focused on progress and development. 

The Nets' 20-62 record last season was the worst in the NBA. But spirits are high this season after the acquisitions of PG D'Angelo Russell, C Timofey Mozgov, SF DeMarre Carroll, and SG Allen Crabbe to go along with the Nets' first-round C Jarrett Allen. 

Atkinson loves his new band of players to work with, but he isn't primarily focused on winning a ring just yet. He needs his players to grow first.
