This shocking stat proves the Nets are a legitimate threat to win the NBA Finals

Ever since James Harden joined the team and the Nets have gotten the big 3 they envisioned at the beginning of the year, things have been up and down.

Their trio of stars have only played seven of a possible 17 games together. They also haven’t really figured this defense thing out, either. Despite all of that, though, they’ve proven themselves to be a legitimate title contender.

They’ve been straight up dominating Western Conference teams. Their win against the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday — without both Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving — showcased that dominance again.

The Nets were down by as many as 24 points and came roaring back behind 38 points from James Harden, who hit a 3-pointer with just under 30 seconds left in the game to give the Nets their first and final lead.

The Nets are now a cool 8-3 against the Western Conference this season. Not only that, but they’re also 6-0 against the West’s playoff teams this year, according to ESPN’s Marc Spears.

They’ve got impressive wins over the Warriors, Clippers, Jazz, Nuggets and , now, the Suns.They’ve still got a lot to prove as a team, but one thing is clear. Against the best of the best in the NBA they’ve proven to be dominant.

They’ll have to prove it again in a few days with their first matchup against the Lakers. That’s going to be fun.
