HOUSTON (AP) Spencer Dinwiddie didn't seem to be nearly as wowed by his late-game scoring for the Brooklyn Nets as he was by the fact that his team got an overtime victory on a night James Harden had a season-high 58 points.

"The man had 60 and we won," Dinwiddie said, shaking his head and only slightly exaggerating Harden's performance. "That's big-time for a young group."

Dinwiddie scored 25 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter and overtime and the Nets spoiled Harden's night with a 145-142 victory over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday. >> Read More

The surging Nets will face another major test on Monday night. 

Brooklyn, one of the hottest teams in the NBA, heads to Boston to square off against the Celtics in a matchup of playoff contenders that was hard to fathom prior to the start of the season. 

The Nets (20-21) have won three straight and 12 of their last 15 games to climb into the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference standings, just 4.5 games behind the Celtics (23-15), who are in fifth place.

NEW YORK (AP) D'Angelo Russell had 22 points and 13 assists, and the Brooklyn Nets built up a big enough lead with a 73-point first half to withstand Anthony Davis' monstrous return to the lineup, beating the New Orleans Pelicans 126-121 on Wednesday night.

Davis finished with 34 points and a career-high 26 rebounds after a one-game absence, but there weren't enough rebounds to get in the first half, when the Nets opened a 24-point lead during their highest-scoring first half at home in 17 years.

Joe Harris added 21 points for the Nets, who had 105 points through three quarters, then got consecutive baskets by Harris when New Orleans trimmed the down to seven with under 5 minutes remaining.

After splitting two matchups in late-October, the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets meet on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden coming off vastly different results against two of the Eastern Conference's best teams.

The Nets pulled out a 106-105 overtime win over the Eastern Conference-leading Toronto Raptors on Friday night, snapping an eight-game losing streak, a day after the Knicks dropped a 128-100 decision at Boston.

New York managed just 39.6 percent shooting from the field in the loss as the bench went cold, connecting on just 12 of 36 attempts. Worse, the Knicks' defense was puzzled by the Celtics, who shot better than 53.3 percent from the field and finished with 32 assists.

NEW YORK -- The next time D'Angelo Russell and Spencer Dinwiddie combine on a big performance the Brooklyn Nets hope the result is different. Meanwhile, the Utah Jazz hope a slow start does not begin catching up with them.

Russell scored a season-high 38 points in the team's last game on Friday, two off his career high. Dinwiddie matched a career-best by getting 31 points in the contest, a 112-102 defeat at the hands of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Despite the loss, the backcourt duo became the first pair of Nets teammates to get 30 points in the same game since Deron Williams and Brook Lopez did so back in April 2015.

After missing 32 games with a knee injury, D'Angelo Russell made his long-awaited return to the court for the Nets in their 101-95 comeback win against the Heat on Friday night. 

Russell was predictably rusty. In 14 minutes off the bench, he missed all five shots from the field and scored just one point, with two assists and two turnovers. The stat line wasn't of the utmost importance-- Russell and the Nets know the shots will fall. Everyone was just happy to have him back on the court. 

"That was the main test, so getting the opportunity to go out there and be with my teammates again was great," Russell said...

The Nets are four games out of the final playoff place in the Eastern Conference and their players believe they can make the playoffs

Why not? With an East-heavy January schedule, ground could be made over the next four weeks. And without owning their first-round pick this summer, currently owned by the Cavaliers via the Celtics, the front office surely has no incentive to lose. 

At 15-23, the team is a bit better than many expected. Reinforcements are on the way, too. Jahlil Okafor has just begun to enter the Nets rotation, with 11 minutes against the Timberwolves on Wednesday, and D'Angelo Russell is soon to be back from injury...

Nets PG D'Angelo Russell won't be rushing back on the court anytime soon as he recovers from arthroscopic surgery, per Newsday's Greg Logan

The Nov. 11 surgery was performed to remove loose bodies from Russell's left knee. The third-year point guard wants to make sure that he doesn't rush back, so he will take his time to make sure everything is feeling good. 

"Honestly, I'm just trying to stay healthy and get as strong as I can before I get back out on the floor," Russell said. "It's definitely not something I want to rush, however that may go. I'm not really forcing anything, just doing what the trainers and stuff tell me day-in and day-out and go from there, see how I feel every day."

The Nets announced D'Angelo Russell underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on Friday.

The 21-year-old exited Saturday night's game against the Jazz with the injury, where the initial prognosis expected him to miss several games. Without their leading scorer on Tuesday, the Nets fell to the Celtics 109-102.

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."
